    'The granddaughter of newspaper titan William Randolph Hearst, she was a student at the University of California at Berkeley (where streets bear her family name) in 1974 when she was kidnapped by a gang of wack-job radical terrorists called the Symbionese Liberation Army... Soon, she was calling herself "Tania" and seen brandishing a semiautomatic rifle while robbing a California bank with the gang...

    Now 61 and known as Patricia Hearst-Shaw, she's a co-owner of a shih tzu called Rocket, an adorable puff of a pooch who was picked as the top toy dog at Madison Square Garden on Monday...'

    Hearst told media: 'People move on.'

    From the SLA to the WKC -- what a difference 40 years makes. :)

    Indeed. I really think PH was coerced into participating in the robberies with the SLA and maybe she experienced Stockholm Syndrome. She certainly didn't go willingly with her captors -- she was violently abducted -- and when I look at that picture of her holding the machine gun I see sadness in her eyes. I am glad she has put the past behind her and chosen to do something positive with her life. She should welcome the positive publicity associated with the dog show.
