Also, in some newspapers, the dog's name has two c's -- Accouche.

Pet owners are entitled to refer to their pets by more than one name!

      One other thing, Joe. If the sealyham was sick with a cold, could the baby have caught the cold from the dog? Or did the dog pass the cold along to the baby?
