    Community, officials at odds over free-roaming dog

    By JERI CLAUSING
    The Associated Press
    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.

    Blue the dog doesn't have a home. And he apparently doesn't want one. But the blue-eyed Australian cattle dog has $1,800 in savings, a Facebook page and an air-conditioned dog house.

    UPDATED: Blue Dog Stays Leash-Free


    Council members were unfazed, insisting they couldn’t exempt one dog from local ordinances. But after an hour of almost nonstop public pleas, city officials did decide to work changing leash laws to include electronic fences.
    Noskin said that it wasn’t the outcome Blue’s caretakers had hoped for, but that it’s a compromise everyone can live with.
    It’s unclear whether the cost of the fence will come out of the more than $1,800 donated by the community for the dog’s care or whether a fundraiser might be held.

    Awww! I love Blue's seductive "Don't you wish to scratch my belly?" look in the bottom photo. LOL!

    I am glad that a compromise has been achieved. Blue is a cattle dog, after all, it's in his genes to roam and herd.
