Mets Dog!

Dad found this on a very cool blog that gave a little tour of Shea while visiting his friend John's blog, The Mets Police.

We're trying to figure out why the dog is there. Perhaps it is Met owner Fred Wilpon's dog? Or just a generic dog from the North Shore Animal League where I grew up! Who knows--they said something about rescue dogs and there is a training place for rescue dogs on Long Island--so perhaps that's another source?

Regardless, dad's a weirdo when it comes to baseball. He grew up rooting for the Mets and was estatic when they won the World Series in 1986 when he was just 16 years old. After covering the team when he was in radio he grew to hate them. Just a bunch of jerks, especially the owner--he thought. So now he roots for the Chicago Cubs who happen to be in first place this year.

Dog dish tip to John McD at The Mets Police for bringing this up.
