All in a day's play

The search is on to find a mystery dog that police say prevented a killing spree in Toronto last week, according to a Reuters report.

Police say a Canadian man, whose car was packed with 6,000 rounds of ammunition and rifles, planned to kill as many people as possible. They say the man's intention was to make sure he was sent to prison and never let out. But he changed his mind at the last minute, and later gave himself up to police after a friendly dog came up to play with him in a park and melted his heart.

The betting is on Elvis Presley, a black border collie. His owner is not so sure — Elvis usually runs up to women and not men, she said — but is happy to collect accolades for her pet.
