We’re putting together the obligatory year-in-review prairie dog, and I thought it’d be nice to have a Barking Dogs column with your comments about the news, arts and miscellaneous-category other stories you were most dazzled/shocked/horrified/outraged by over the last year.

So! What were your top stories of the last year? Best answers will go in the Dec. 29 Barking Dogs.

(If you have no idea what I’m talking about, Barking Dogs is a new-ish column full of your Dog Blog comments. You can see the latest one on page five of the current dead-tree prairie dog. No, it’s not online. Publishing a column of already-online comments online would be stoopit.)
