King - The Stray Dog - Sharon's Collection


We had a lot of action surrounding this stray dog in our neighborhood this week. For one thing Animal Control came and shot him with a tranquilizer dart, but they missed and got him in the ear. He ran away and they never found him. There were tons of neighbors ready to riot and animal control called a sheriff car. King came back later that night for awhile, but then left again because he was feeling very uneasy. This is a portrait of King painted on a piece of Italian tile.

Do you think he's dangerous, or simply misunderstood?

Definitely misunderstood. It was a case of mistaken identity. The real biter and killer of small poodles was the black chow mix that won't stay in his yard. An old lady in the neighborhood said that she used to feed King years ago and that he has been slinking around Paradise Mountain for 10 years or so. King has decided to live at Sharon's place for awhile and Animal Control has closed the case. The chow mix is still frequently on the loose.
