Seeing-eye Dog Pees on Court - Delays NBA Basketball Game!

In this article, we see the importance of handling your guide animal properly in-public.
A stink was raised during halftime of the Detroit Pistons-Orlando Magic NBA game on Tuesday night when the start of the second half was delayed by three minutes after a seeing-eye dog relieved itself on the court.
Obviously, the handler did not give their guide a relief break before the game, and also failed to keep the guide animal on a leash. Guide horses have attended long sports events successfully, and the horse learns to “squeeze out” as much as possible to ensure that they don’t interrupt their handler by requesting a mid-game potty break.
When the Pistons came out for warm-ups on Tuesday, Rasheed Wallace walked up to the lane where the excrement had fallen, stopped and stared in disbelief. His team-mates were just as confused before wide smiles broke out.
