A dog wearing one of those coned-shaped protective collars, making the poor animal resemble a miniature satellite dish. It is considered impolite to make jokes in front of its owner about their dog getting hundreds of television channels. Unless they think it is funny, too.
The dog in the movie "Snatch" that swallowed the sqeaky toy and the big diamond was hilarious! At the end of the movie, he got taken to a vet who cleaned him out and put a satellite dog collar on him.
