No Question About 'Cy'Being Leon's Dog Three weeks ago some thief made away with Leon Merritt's Golden Labrador dog. A thorough search was of no avail and Leon Had a/bout _given up hopes of ever having ''Cy" returned to him. Then one day last week .Fred Shllts, while In Wesley saw "Cy." Fred called the dog and took him into a cafe and put In a call for Leon. The latter immediately started for Wesley and .in the meantime iFred was providing a meal for '"Cy" whose appearance Indicated short rationing. There was no question as to "Cy" being (Leon's dog when he arrived at the cafe. 'Cy" was even too tickled to eat. Examination showed that "Cy" had at one time -been tied up and the condition of his paws indicated that he had done a lot 'of tramping. "Cy" is home again but he is being carefully watched to prevent further kidnapping of his dogship. He is 14 months old and has developed into one of the foremost duck retrievprs in the county hence he becomes valuable to dog snatchers who no doubt always have a market for good dogs. And according to reports there is much of dog stealing in late years.
