This is not your typical dog or cat GeekList.

Each of these games contains a subtle (or perhaps not so subtle) canine or feline reference.

Please feel welcome to add any wargame titles or other strategy games that fit the topic, but don't include transparent stuff like Cat in the Hat or Dog Monopoly.

Exceptionally clever additions will be awarded 1 GeekGold.

Any football game would have worked I suppose, but with this entry we get access to;

Oh...pick your least favourite team to stand in as the "dog"

And I will NOT be going through every college team for the same effect
