Vet Park dog

Delilah, Casey Arredondo Jr.'s 4-year-old Pomeranian mix, focuses on a statue titled "Man's Best Friend" before Memorial Day services at the Golden Triangle Veterans Memorial Park in Port Arthur on Monday, May 30, 2005. The statue is dedicated to the memory of the more than 30,000 military dogs who served during the 20th century.

The statue completely freaked out this dog. She would not stop looking at it. I suppose it's a canine compliment to the artist.

Deadline pop quiz: Where in the AP Stylebook can a journalist find the guidelines to write the name, personal pronouns and capitalization for dogs?
The answer is in the comments section.

The guidelines for the names of domestic animals (including dogs), personal pronouns and capitalization are found under "animals."
