Anyone over a certain age -- and you know who you are -- will remember those wonderful days of peppermint sticks and electric dog-washers, a magic time when running barefoot through the grass and having your cocker spaniel buffed and pressure-rinsed to a glossy sheen at the flip of a switch was every boy's birthright. Of course Rags is long gone now -- that unfortunate business with the faulty shutoff relay -- but you'll always have those stains on the ceiling to remember him by.
