Answer to Puzzle Contest:

Doberman Pinscher was the answer I had in mind. However, other answers were accepted. Here is an explanation from Jennifer Mahar which may help to illuminate:

"I found several breeds of dog that fit this answer. The Carlin Pinscher, Doberman Pinscher, German Pinscher, Harlequin Pinscher, Miniature Pinscher, and Swiss Shorthaired Pinscher. But usually you let us know if the puzzle is two words, all you mentioned was the second part of the name, in that case AFFENPINSCHER is the only breed of dog that is one word. Take away the 'S' and you have 'pincher' or a 'squeeze'."

I accepted any dog's name that included PINSCHER in it.
