Best Defense

More space dogs: Spock and his evil twin. Plus, Rebecca’s hideout is discovered!

The dogs’ mother, Elissa, reports that, “They are Mini Schnauzers. Good Spock is Sweetie, and Evil Spock is Fritz. They are 4, turning 5 in April. They are littermates, siblings, and very close."

Best Defense is in summer re-runs. This item originally appeared on February 6, 2015.

The dogs’ mother, Elissa, reports that, “They are Mini Schnauzers. Good Spock is Sweetie, and Evil Spock is Fritz. They are 4, turning 5 in April. They are littermates, siblings, and very close.

“They don’t like wearing clothes, but put up with it for Halloween. As for space travel, they know mommy (me) likes watching it on TV and reading about it. To my shame they have no interest in Dr Who, but do like ST:TOS reruns. (I think its the background beeps– sounds like their squeaky toys.)”

Meanwhile, it turns out that Rebecca, our roving chief canine correspondent, did not join the circus, but instead has been hanging with Conan. Here’s the evidence: She will be on his show talking about her book War Dogs this coming Monday, Feb. 9.
