Yes, I am very familiar with Bolivar/Bornworthy, and even his puppy Behe
(Behemoth), but no, the name of the dog that was mentioned was "Fido", whom
I am unfamiliar.  I am also aware of Donald's other "pets" such as Grand 
Genius III of Old Siwash the Smugsnorkle Squattie, Tabby the cat, Basil the
donkey, Hortense the ostrich and Billy the goat.  I was just surprised to
learn there was yet another I hadn't heard of before now.  Hopefully someone
will be kind enough to enlighten both of us on this.
