Better hope that your doggie doesn't yap (he's probably young enough to be exempt from licensing still?)
Once the "officer" notes the existence of the Dog they can legally begin proceeding down the path of ticketing...
I know a lot of people yap about Cat licensing, Horses, Rats, etc. - the greater point, and liability insurance agents can attest to this, is that Dogs are involved in more personal injury/attacks than any other domesticated pet combined. While a large part of it these days is revenue generation, the latter fact, combined with a requirement for shots to be up to date were originally a public safety/health issue for folks to avoid having to get rabies shots after getting nipped trying to deliver the mail, milk, bread, porn or girl scout cookies...
