TOUCHWORD 2
In a crossword, words cross each other; in this puzzle, they merely touch. More specifically, every letter shares an edge with at least one identical letter either immediately above or immediately below. The top and bottom rows are considered adjacent. (You can think of it as a diagramless, cylindrical Share-A-Letter puzzle.)

Arrange the letters in the shaded spaces to form the final answer, an 8-letter word.
1 Any one of the Twelve Peers / Title terrier of a PBS series
2 Whitened / The Hawkeye State / Relaxed
3 “Ta-ta!” / Horse feature / ____-A-Center
4 “____ Pie” (Warrant song) / Portent / Welcome
5 “Every Rose Has Its ____” (Poison song) / The second-largest country in the Arabian Peninsula /  Neon and such
6 Holier-than-____ / Negative response from Putin / Assumed names
7 Insult comic dog voiced by Robert Smigel / Anklebones / Got a perfect score on
8 NBC drama about Nick Burkhardt / Expression / Sulfuric ____
9 Original language of the hymn “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” / Some periods of time / Comedian Murphy
10 ____ cotta / Nephew of Caligula / Sell
11 Sharif University of Technology’s city / Cliché in a work of fiction / Africa’s longest river
12 Ginormous monster / The Sicilian Defense, for one
13 Actor Christian / A dark shade of brown / ____ duck
14 Town of ____ (2014 video game) / Franchise whose fifth film, subtitled Collision Course, is set to be released in July 2016: 2 wds. / Michael of fashion
