THE WIFE AND I HAVE been putting a humane rat trap out in the backyard night after night, trying to arrest a trouble-making rodent who drives our dog into a barking frenzy. And we could put the neck-breaking trap out, I suppose, but itís not the ratís fault that our dog canít tell the difference between a rat in the lemon tree and a masked intruder carrying a sack labelled ďLOOTĒ.
