REVIEWS
"The arrival of your score was indeed a bright spot in my day. I really don't know when I have had such a good laugh...It really is a smashing idea."-Jan DeGaetani

DESCRIPTION
A humurous, popera (pop opera) song in which an Ann Landers column, (originally published in a 1973 edition of New York Newsday) is set to music for voice and two pianos. Happy the dog alarms his owners after several midnight trips to the wine cellar. After they find Happy passed out next to a keg of wine, the owners write to Miss Landers to find out if dogs can really get drunk...and Miss Landers gives her tounge-in-cheek reply.

Dear Ann Landers:
Can a dog get drunk on wine? I need to know.
Our golden retriever sleeps in the laundry room which is adjacent to the wine cellar.
I noticed that some mornings Happy came staggering into the kitchen very slowly,
even bumping into things.
At first we thought he might be having eye trouble.
We took him to the vet.
Happy's eyes are OK.

Last week when Happy didn't show up for breakfast
I went down to get him.
He was passed out next to a keg of wine.
The spigot had been turned just a little, so there was a very slow trickle.
As I was standing there trying to figure what to do,
Happy awakened and behaved like a person with a hangover.
That very morning I had the keg of wine moved to a higher shelf,
out of his reach.
Happy has not behaved strangely since.
Could it be that the dog was getting inebriated?
-Martin's Ferry Researcher


Dear MFR:
Animals can get plastered just like humans.
Alcohol affects their brains the same way.
It's a good thing you discovered the source of the problem before
Happy began to crave a hair of a dog that bit him.
