It's sort of like "my dog ate my homework" excuse.  Only this one... I'm not even sure that it isn't true.

Here's the thing... my dog, which also happens to be a Bichon Frise, will step on the remote and change channels, adjust the volume, or any number of other commands that the remote can do.  It's just in the process of the way he steps, or how the remote is sitting on the couch, etc.  So, technically I guess this guy could be telling the truth. Probably not...but there is the possibility.

Here's the story- guy supposedly orders the Hustler channel from DirecTV.  He claims that his dog (a Bichon Frise) ordered the porn channel.  DirecTV wants $70.  The guy won't pay it, and so they wound up shutting off his subscription.  Now he's upset and has contacted the FCC to complain because HIS DOG ORDERED THE PORT CHANNEL!!!

Well, there is no way to actually prove that the dog did it, so he is still responsible.  It would be the same if he had a child who did the same thing.

Bottom line...it might be possible for the dog to do this...the DirecTV customer is still responsible for the bill.  Moral- keep the remote out of the dogs reach... or step.
