    The scam was uncovered when Japanese moviestar Maiko Kawamaki went on a talk-show and wondered why her new pet would not bark or eat dog food.

    She was crestfallen when told it was a sheep.

    Then hundreds of other women got in touch with police to say they feared their new "poodle" was also a sheep.

    Are they kidding? How could they not know that it wasn't a dog? I can believe one or two people falling for this, but not 2,000. Even if they're not familiar with sheep, you'd have to know it's not a poodle, either, right?

    I'm starting to lose faith in humanity.

    This is a classic, I cracked up when I read that bit about not barking and not eating the dog food :D

    <<The sheep are believed to have been imported from overseas - Britain, Australia>>

    We're looking at you New Zealand lol- thought for sure the article would say NZ-

    I like the bit about getting it's toenails trimmed and finding out it had hooves. Even if they didn't realize it wasn't a fancy poodle, wouldn't they notice that part?

    I'm sorry, that's just too dang funny.
    I wonder where the people went to get their sheep-dog's nails trimmed. Didn't the trimmer even know?
