    Keep in mind that you need to keep modifiers (single words or phrases) as close to what they're modifying as possible in order to make sense.

    So ask yourself ...

    "Having been discovered, Rover" -- does "having been discovered" refer to Rover?

    "his owner with puppy-dog eyes" -- does the owner have "puppy-dog eyes"?

    Which one either doesn't make sense or seems funny??!! =) That's the one you need to fix.
