And finally, a few weeks ago I stumbled across this video of a 2017 Channel 12 Milwaukee news report by the late Mike Anderson. Meet Roxie.

On a whim I called Roxie’s owner, Michael Crowley who is a Waukesha County Board Supervisor.

Popular? Try this. Crowley told me that one hour after that video was posted five years ago it received more than one million views thanks to Channel 12’s affiliation with ABC News.

The story was picked up in the UK by the Daily Mail.

Roxie is now 10 and Crowley says doing well.

That’s it for this week. Thanks for stopping by.

We’d really appreciate it if you forward this on to other dog lovers you know. Let them have some fun!

See ya, BARK, next Saturday!
