I don't see where "Lie" is shown? The dog answered a question incorrectly, which is not a lie, just lack of knowledge. You wouldn't call some one a liar just because they did not know a certain piece of information. To lie you need to knowingly pass on false information.

The teacher accepted the dogs answer tho... so the teacher "let the sleeping dog lie."

Great Rebus, siamese. When I read it I laughed aloud because I was thinking of one similar and kicked yours up on the search. Yours is MUCH better than the one I had in mind.

And M-A and MrIx are on only partially firm territory, here. Lie, in addition to the use of it as a pun for *reclining*, has both an intransitive and transitive-active verb-form. The transitive one has to to with *affect* or causing somebody else to believe the falsehood. Since AT THE TIME OF THE REBUS the teacher had no way of knowing whether the dog was aware of the prevarication the statement was accepted as a *lie*. Also the dog need NOT have conscious knowledge of the truth of the statement. My Random House Dictionary of the English Language, 1987, unabridged, page 1109 shows, simply, definition (3);*An inaccurate or false statement*. And my Merriam-Websters Third, 1976, unabridged, page 1305 shows (similarly), definition (2); *To create a false or misleading impression: convey an untruth*.

Hang in there, folks, the editors do an incredible and (mostly) thankless job, here, but they, too, can make mistakes.

Again, great job

Meant to credit Alei (above) also. She nailed it down in FAR fewer words than mine.
