Three dogs, one a “sweetheart” named Lesi, who attacked Layla whilst Oreo, a Chihuahua mix, stood by helplessly.

A very special news story for
New Year’s Day in the L-Dub . . . and hoping for accurate news reporting in the New Year of 2018.

Please take note, this is not a joke: The ‘news’ you’ll read about below was actually published on Dec. 17th in the Sunday Palm Beach Post. However, please keep Layla in your prayers still recovering from the attack by that ‘sweetheart’ Lesi who wasn’t given the same chance to go after little Oreo.

Everyone wants to know. How are Lesi,
Layla, and Oreo doing?
“Did you know today, New Year’s Day, is the Lake Worth Very Very Special Monday Cursory Print Edition (LWVVSMCPE)?”

But. . . where did this kerfuffle happen between Lesi, Layla, and Oreo? That’s the ‘inexplicabe’ thing about this entire incident. Why? Because it starts out like a mystery wrapped up in a word salad. But the puzzle was solved. And you will be very surprised. Please continue reading about Lesi, Layla, and little Oreo:

And then, “Meanwhile, back
in Lake Worth. . .”?

Once again, this story actually appeared in the print edition of the Post, on page B3, the ‘Local’ section on Sunday, Dec. 17th. After reading this article many of you will be left scratching your head wondering,

“Where did this dog attack happen? In my neighborhood in Lake Worth or near a City park?
Is the Lake Worth City Commission aware of this?”

Where exactly did this dog attack happen? Learn the answer below following a short quiz.

But first, compare and contrast the ‘news’ on December 17th vs. a news report published on the Friday prior:
Reporter Olivia Hitchcock clearly cited where the incident “Crash knocks out electricity to 3,000” occurred. Why did the Lake Worth Electric Utility respond to an incident in Palm Springs?

The ‘news’ story that appeared in the Dec. 17th print edition will have you shaking your head like a boxer with fleas “sniffing the grass”. Trust me, you’ll be asking yourself, “Where did this dog attack happen?” You’ll have to read it at least twice before it even starts to make sense.

This dog attack, one that “can sometimes be fast and inexplicable” is in itself ‘inexplicable’, like a day old word salad tossed away, wrapped up tightly in a newspaper that costs too much anyway. 

Or is this ‘news’ about a dog attack actually solvable? Like a puzzle of words that include:

Palm, Springs, suburban, Lake, Worth, unincorporated, Melaleuca, 6th Ave., Emerald, Vista, apartments, County, Animal, and Control?

Where did this dog attack happen? Would this be the apartments along Emerald Vista off Melaleuca Lane in Palm Springs? Take the quiz; pick one. Did this dog attack happen. . .
  1. In the City of Lake Worth?
  2. In the Village of Palm Springs?
  3. None of the above?
The answer is 3. “Emerald Lakes development on Sixth Avenue South” is in unincorporated Palm Beach County or also referred to as suburban Lake Worth.

However, within the article in the Post yesterday — if you can make it that far without getting a headache — is some very helpful information: 

     “When incidents and attacks happen daily, they do, but the severity will vary,” Walesky [Cpt. David Walesky at Palm Beach County Animal and Control] said.

And then in the story about Lesi, “Meanwhile,
back in Lake Worth. . .”

“But a lot of those [dog attacks] are happening inside the home with visiting family members, friends who visit the homes, it’s not necessarily dogs running loose,” he [Walesky] said.
     Meanwhile, back in Lake Worth, ■■■■■ said he was in shock about what happened. “I trusted that dog and she’s never hurt anyone before,” he said. “I’ve never seen her be aggressive before.”
