    That really puts Canada in a bind. With the recent World Health Organization report on the average size of beavers declining at an alarming rate, Canada is basically stuck with a perpetually sliding scale of measurement. However, I'm saving my sympathy for those poor small dogs, who are now gonna have to get even smaller just to keep up with the shrinking beavers.
