OOC: Didn't see Borgamatic's post until now (been very busy, grr...)  Yes, I
agree, in 80 PA, if there were any Dog Boys, they would have been a rather
small, and probably experimental group.  My hunch is that it would be
another decade before a government as paranoid as the CS would put troops
like Dog Boys into general use in the field.
OOC: Yeah, that makes sense.  All it said was that they were 'introduced,' 
and that could mean just about anything.  So Bongo's a Dog Boy ahead of his 
time... in more ways than one.  ^_^

Either that or he's the pooch that time forgot... lol...
