A very well done "fake" update page for the Guard Dog is here.
Valve promptly responded with a blog post.

Let the speculation begin. Highly doubt that this content would ever see the light of day, but it's easily the best fake update we've ever seen and quite original.

As I stated on the home page, I am personally hoping that this is an engineer update in disguise. Though I know its probably wishful thinking. Plus I want a solly update!

This is by far the best fake content I have ever seen. The achievements are really well done too!

Too bad they couldn't get someone to read over it and fix up some of the rather glaring grammatical errors.

The dog model is fairly impressive however.

EDIT: Hahahaha gg at Planet Half-Life getting fooled into believing it's an official update :tongue

It'd look real if the dogs didn't look so bad and out of place.
Bring back Fallout Squad.

I doesn't look that bad. It's quite out of place. That sure gives it away.

They got the feel of it down quite right. Especially the achievements.
No peeing over dead enemies achievement, though.

It would be funny if Valve did do something with this for fun, kind of like jarate. But not sure how at the moment. Too tired to think. Anyways bring on the engy and solly updates! Though I would imagine this will not happen until after L4D 2 is released.

it wouldn't make sense to have a dog in the game, from a tf2 or humane perspective:

A) It wouldn't flow with the game, it would disrupt the other classes and essentially create a 10th class.

2) PETA and others would get seriously pissed off at Valve, allowing the killing of a dog in a game would not be cool. (even though quake already did this, the dog was "possessed" of couse)

III) The dog seems useless, fun, but useless. Either he will be poor at doing his task by relying on a simplistic AI or leave the engi completely vulnerable when switched into dog mode.

You'd think Valve could exploit the epic hypocrisy of PETA in this instance and say "screw them".
