T’was no act of kindness, but it’s a dog-gone good story

Greetings from the Ridge.

‘Twas told to me as true and the little gal was such a sweetheart that I had no choice but to believe her.

According to Ellie, she has a good friend who lives in Chicago and this particular friend owned a large dog of some sort. The hound was not the little ankle-biting house trotter but a full-sized beast and her very best friend. But even big dogs have an expiration date and her dog died one day last week leaving the girl with the body of a very large animal to dispose of. It seems as though the Windy City has certain ordinances against burying large animals or leaving them out for the garbage man so she called her vet and he told her that his clinic takes care of the disposition of pets if she could somehow get the dog’s body across town to his office. Ellie said that her friend is on the tiny side and the prospect of carrying her departed pup across Chicago was out of the question, so the girl went searching around her neighborhood for someone who had a large suitcase that they wanted to dispose of. The girl found just such a case, rolled Rover into it, snapped up the latches and took out across the city. &nbsp;&nbsp;<ahref="http://etypeservices.com/Cass%20County%20Star%20GazetteID497/"><spanstyl... 13px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">To view more, please log in or subscribe to the digital edition.</span></a></p>
