Oh, Sweaty Beans.
This is a dog who WORKS for his lap privileges, dammit!
(and who is clearly right-handed)
The wire he's sitting on is for re-charging purposes.
A dog like Reginald drains the battery pretty quickly, I must say. What with the screaming and the shit-eating, and the Flea-humping and what not.
He's got about 2 bars left at this point. Which is why he appears so angelic and behaved.
