bad dog
 n.— «“Bad dog” means merchants who illegally sell tobacco. Good dog, of course, applies to merchants to who don’t take the bait.…the Attorney General’s Office will send letters to retailers, including those who sold cigarettes illegally and those who refused. The agents refer to them as “bad dog” and “good dog” letters.» —“Tobacco, Teens And The Attorney General’s Office” by Bill Coates Arizona Capitol Times (Phoeniz, Ariz.) July 18, 2005.
