Animal Watch: 'Stuck' dog is really floating on air now

Sunday, February 28, 2010

SILVER SPRING, Henderson Ave., 2200 block, Feb. 9. A resident reported that a white dog appeared to be stuck in heavy snow in a yard; it had not moved in some time, and the caller feared for the animal's safety. An officer entered the yard and discovered that the "dog" was a metalized nylon balloon with the face of a white dog on it. The balloon had become lodged in the snow.
