 - Tail Wag Wil Decide Wether Dog 'Dognapped'...
Tail Wag Wil Decide Wether Dog 'Dognapped' CHICAGO m- Was Tobey, a 3- year-old Boston bull terrier, "dog- napped" from his master or not? Refusing to rely on mere human testimony a Circuit Court judge Wednesday ruled Tobey himself— through a wag of his tail—will solve the dilemma. Judge Jacob M. Braude ordered the terrier brought before him Aug. 22 to determine whether Tobey wants as his master an Omaha divorcee or her former husband. Clarence Gaughen, 49, of Chicago, , told the court Wednesday his former wife took Tobey, now in Omaha, out of his backyard "while I wasn't looking." He asked that she be cited for contempt and he be allowed to stop alimony payments. Mrs. Caughen was not in court, but her attorney, Charles C. Cooley, said his client was not a dog- napper. "She came to Chicago and dropped by her former husband's home for a visit," Cooley said "She could sense Tobey was terribly unhappy. It could not be 'dognapping' because Tobey accompanied her willingly—wagging his stub tail." Judge Braude says it's now up to Tobey and his stub tail. Hope Fading
