Cary Pub's Popular Poodle Returned

Posted February 19, 1998

— It was like a scene right out of the movie "The Godfather". A dog that was apparently kidnapped was returned to its owner, minus a small part of its ear.

Boozer Boy, a cuddly, lovable mainstay at Wivi-and-Me, a popular watering hole in Cary, has a well documented history at the pub. Many consider the pooch like a permanent fixture in the bar.

Five days ago Boozer Boy suddenly vanished and the pub's owners believe he was kidnapped for the second time in seven years.

But just like the previous incident, Boozer Boy was returned to his rightful owners, this time someone just dropped him off in front of the bar.

The only problem was whoever took him this time cut part of his left ear off. The pub owners are rightfully upset that someone could be cruel to a dog. Right now, Cary Police are investigating the crime. Whoever hurt Boozer Boy could face a class-I felony and cruelty to animals charge.
