a simple question, where did the saying sick as a dog from?? thanks
Michael Quinion runs one of the better researched etymology sites out there.

My wife is a flight attendant. Recently, she had a seeing-eye dog get sick on one of her flights. She said that she learned first hand what the saying “sick as a dog” meant.
thanks for clearing that up
