This story was all over the news yesterday, but it was hard to find a video that focused more on the “lion” than the person telling the story.
“Charles the Monarch” is a labradoodle, clipped and dyed to look like the lion mascot of Old Dominion University. He sparked a spate of 911 calls about a “lion on the loose.” Normally I disapprove of doing such things to dogs, but in this case it appears there’s no harm done. Despite his unusual haircut, Charlie appears to be all dog, completely oblivious to his own appearance and absolutely adorable. I love this dog!
