    I kind of love that this thread is in here.

    Irk is a handsome guy and no doubt they have their best officers out searching. Come home safely, irk!

    Oh! A highly trained puppy! I was wondering why a toddler had no last name! Come home, puppy!

    I thought maybe it was the toddler's initials until I got to the picture.

    Well, that doesn't sound too promising.

    Police chief is kinda throwing the handler under the bus, isn't he? Doesn't sound like there's a lot of trust there.

    Yeah, and it's hard to say from that article whether there's any merit to the accusations. It's rare for a trained dog to run away like that, and having it happen twice would seem to indicate some kind of problem. But the chief's tone is kind of off, too. Strange.

    Wow. Poor dogs.

    I hope Irk is found safe. He should have a microchip in him, right?

    As for the "handler" I hope he's done handling.

    What does 3 dogs chewing through a fence to get loose have to do with the handler ?

    I have a fenced yard, and my dogs have managed to get out of it before. You just have to fix the weak link in the chain and move on with your life. It's not necessarily anybodies fault, dogs will be dogs.

    If somebody took the dog in because it was running around loose, and is feeding and watering it, unaware of who's dog it is, it seems like there would be a nicer approach than threatening felony charges against somebody "if we have to go track down the culprit".

    They found the other two dogs, the third one was probably thirsty and hungry and somebody might have taken him in or put them in their yard until they figured out what to do with him. I've done that myself before, especially after lightning storms. I guess I had better be careful the next time, I might have the SWAT team kick down my door and throw in a couple of flash-bang grenades.


    As much as they spend to train and raise those dogs, they should have had GPS collars on them anyway.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that Irk is somewhere renamed Bopper and wearing a tiara given to him by his new tiny human. At least, I hope he's living the life with kibble and a pet toddler whose parents don't realize he's missing.
