Dogs Have the Wrong Kind of Character

Do dogs have character? Well, yes, perhaps they do. But, it seems, dogs don't have enough character -- or, in any event, they don't have enough of the right kind of character -- to make them subject to the prohibition against "circumstantial" use of character evidence. See Brown v. Eberly, 2002 U.S. Dist. Lexis 22012 (E.D. Pa., filed Nov. 14, 2002). So, dogs, take notice: anything you bark can be used against you!
