A Cockapoo's Tale


Scary, but true story.

"Rags, a 17-pound cockapoo, a cross between a cocker spaniel and a poodle, who belongs to Donna and Martin Seim, went missing the morning of Oct. 24 after the 2-year-old pup ran out of his Middle Road home to chase deer. . .

"At long last, Sunday morning a man was walking his dog near the landfill when a small, scared-looking dog ran out of the woods and whimpered. The man knew it was Rags right away, the Seims said, and called them to let them know his whereabouts."

I think I've learned my lesson. I'm not running off after any more squirrels unless I'm safely on my leash. Just glad to hear Rags is OK (kind of a dopey name, though, 'Rags.' Not a cool name like 'Tommy.'

you know little mutt, it would do you some good to spend a week out in the wild. it'll teach you real dog instincts, like hunting for wild animals and making dog bones out of of dead deer... if only you would have stayed a bit longer on the farm, i would have toughened you up a bit.
