Wasn't that a Song by Wings?

Charles' wife found this apostrophe catastrophe in the yellow pages when she was looking for job ideas:

Anyone want to hire her as a proofreader?

Thanks, Charles!

Becky, are you testing us, making sure we're paying attention?

Shouldn't it be "Charles's wife found..."???

Just asking,

It depends on which style guide you are using. The A.P. doesn't include an "s" after the apostrophe.

I prefer their other hit, "Silly Ruff Songs."

Sorry, couldn't resist...

I thought "Dogs On the Go" sounded like a take-out place that serves hot dogs.
