For the first time in Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's numerous visits to The Bee's editorial board, I noticed that his security entourage - and it's a big one - includes a dog.
Taz, a German Shepherd, Belgian Malinois mix was posted outside the 3rd floor editorial board room.
To guard against what, exactly? Not drugs, it turns out.
The CHP handler teamed with the dog told me the dog was a bomb sniffing dog. Taz did a very good job. There were no blow ups, metaphorical or otherwise, during the editorial board's first ever live webcast meeting with the governor.
