That is awesome.  Gretl and I were on a trial where the man was accused of animal abuse - killing a dog by shooting it because it had come onto his property.  The defense attorney objected to us being there because he felt that the jurors seeing Gretl in the courtroom every day would be prejudicial to his client.  He was found guilty anyway.
