Your dog shot you? LOL Very funny story! I loved Malcolm's role and felt a bit sorry for Porthos. And poor Jon, shot in that area.
Thank you for your review. When I read about the RL story, putting Jon in that situation just popped into my head. He'd definitely be embarrassed and Malcolm wouldn't let it go. I'm glad you enjoyed the story.

Awww... very nice! I do love Malcolm's last line especially...
I’ll never hear the question ‘do you feel lucky’ quite the same way again."
I have no doubt!
Very entertaining, asearcher! Thank you for sharing it!
Thank you for your review. The whole 'Dirty Harry' theme just seemed to fit. Glad you liked the story.

LOL! What a great story! I'll admit I was confused as to the title until I got to the end. I thought it meant Porthos got dirty, not that he was emulating Dirty Harry! In that respect, a great title, too!
Travis not telling Malcolm how Jon got shot was a good touch, and then Malcolm having to question Jon about it. I also liked the "What does it always have to be caves?" line.
Very entertaining story. I'm glad you shared it. (And did you come up with the inspiration for this story, perhaps, because of a recent news article where a hunter got shot by his dog as he was getting out of a boat and had left his gun lying on the boat seat?)
To answer the last question first...yes...that was my inspiration. I'd imagine the guy that happened to had his pride bruised pretty well. That (of course) lead me to think of how Jon would handle this (we know how prideful he can be)...and Malcolm pushing for an answer just fit like a glove. Travis isn't stupid...he's not going to say anything about it if it's not mission critical.
As to the caves...Jon's had more than his fill of cave issues at this point in the story.
The title had to be one that holds the suspense until the end. I'm glad you enjoyed that seeming red herring.

This is hilarious! I'm so glad I read this this morning, definitely cheered me up. Poor Jon, shot in the butt by his own dog and made to endure the amusement of his security officer. I'd be laughing, too.
I'm glad you enjoyed this. It just seemed to work out with the ensemble choosen. That particular time had a lot of Jon/Malcolm interactions and it all fit.
