Final UPDATE: Completely non-political: lost doggie owner found

UPDATED: stupid me, forgot the location: Limestone Hills off Route Seven north behind Goldy Beacom College in Delaware.

OK so maybe this isn't the lost and found, but a wonderful young dog, barely more than a puppy, deposited herself on our doorstep yesterday.

She's an immaculately groomed shepard-Dobermann mix, brown and black with different colored eyes. She's maybe a year old, and exceptionally well-trained (responds to "speak," "sit," "heel," etc.)

Our kids have put out signs around the neighborhood and we've notified the vets, SPCA, Humane Society...

For a variety of reasons, we can't keep this amazing animal for more than a few days.

If anybody who reads this happens to know anybody who has lost this dog, please, please send them here.

Back to incessant political posturing now.

Can you post a cute wittle picture? I can see it now:

Delaware Libertarian: Defenders of Freedom and Lost Puppies.

Brilliant, Steve. Nobody can argue against puppies.

I hope that you find its owner.

I will post a photo but not until my 13 year old daughter gets home and shows me how to upload it from her Facebook page.

Well?

Tell us the story! Is the owner a Libertarian for life now?

You mean you share your political ideology with the owners of lost pets? Passing strange.

Candy was bought about a year ago by a man who later died; his wife is working two jobs to try to save their house. Candy slipped her leash three days ago, and she has been frantically driving around the neighborhood in her few off hours looking for the pup. Finally, this afternoon she saw one of the signs that my daughter and her friends put up.

It must be a really strange political ideology, now that I think of it, that makes your party identification relevant to doing a good deed.

Sorry, Steve. I should have put one of those smiley thingys. It wasn't serious.

But never let it be said again that a Libertarian couldn't be elected dog catcher. :) <-Smiley Thingy

Nothing like a nice human (or canine) interest story with a happy ending to break up the political posturing.

Thanks for the smile!
