RE: Charles the Monarch in the pokey
That's just crazy. I walk my dog off a leash at my home and will let him roam a little when I'm out in the yard but I have several acres of woods surrounding my house and I still will keep tabs on him and call him back if I can't see him. Entirely too much traffic in Norfolk to be doing that.

Agree with you 100%.
I've nearly hit that dog a half dozen times driving south on Colley, or even way over by Granby St.

Sure it was cool to see that dog on TV and I'm sure it brought attention to our school for a day or two. But I've hated that dog for a long time.

It's not the poor dog's fault.

To a point. Bad owner didn't train the dog to stay in the yard / it's territory.
Sure the dog is nice, but he's become a nuisance.
I was nearly rear ended on Colley and 42nd slamming my breaks because of him. A lot of close calls over the years have got me upset. When I go into the ODU book store and see the book the owner wrote it gets me upset that 1) the guy became famous as a result of him being a bad owner, and 2) should I(or the many of the other drivers in the area) have not stopped 1 of the times some kid somewhere would be very upset.

I hope the dog goes to a new owner. I'm sure it would crush the community should something bad happen to him.

BTW, I love dogs. I have my own and I foster for several groups in the area.

The owner didn't actually write the book. A former ODU Professor and Bilogy Dept. Cahir, joseph Daniel did. I am sure the owner did make some monies off of it. The original book was funded by a GoFundMe campaign, so it wasn't a major book publication. There has been a second book. I don't really know anything about it. Apparently, the guy's daughter, who I believe the story went, is who the dog was purchased for, is trying to get custody of the dog. She is an ODU graduate. If she is willing to keep the dog contained properly, which it seems like that is her intention, I hope she can get him and potentially save his life.

Can't stand her dad. Talked to him a few times when I would go to Sams Subshop with my dogs. Guy was ..... well unpleasant.

Natalie is an amazing person and caring dog owner, I know this from personal experience. She wants what's best for the dog, a safe environment. I wish her the very best

So sad. I hope Charles the Monarch can go to the delinquent owner's daughter. She seems to care about the dog. Someone needs to do better by the poor thing.
