A large lecture hall in the main building at CERN, The Canine Experimental Research Network headquarters, somewhere in Europe. The hall is packed with science reporters from many nations. An expectant buzz is heard throughout the room. At the front of the hall is a stage with a podium. TV cameras and microphones are clustered around the front of the stage, aimed at the podium. A door to the right of the stage opens, and a large chocolate Labrador retriever walks across to the podium. A small, wheat-colored spaniel-poodle mixed breed trots after him and stands off to the side. The Labrador begins (Figure 1).
