Answer:  BORDER COLLIE

(Cute!  I’m a big dog fan.  And, it was a nice long 12-letter answer.  We actually have a new clue word, in “grille”.  It can be included in the ralis95 clue word database.  I struggled to get this and ended up backing into it.  I had suspected it, but I always thought it was just a hokey spelling of GRILL, used for pubs that go by bar and grille.  Kinda like the superfluous PE on SHOPPE.  It’s old English and likely from the Saxons, so I kinda discounted it.  Besides the jumble for “grille” being new, so was the one for “opera”.  We’ve seen the other two a few times.  The answer letter layout was actually very good, but kind of wasted, as I thought the answer was pretty obvious.  I like the dog wearing a tie for his interview, the little Canadian and American flags, and the Jumble mug.  Not sure which bridge that is.  I’m sure that there are a number of bridges that go from the U.S. to Canada.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There’s two times of year for me:  football season, and waiting for football season.”   —   Darius Rucker

(The lead singer for Hootie and the Blowfish is a big sports fan!  Football is probably my favorite sport, followed closely by baseball.  Then hockey . . . then the others.  I used to be a basketball fan, but I’m not crazy about how they play the game anymore.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
