Wellesley animal control officer Sue Webb has written on the town website that a reportedly dead dog on Wellesley Avenue turned out to be a stuffed animal.
“I am glad to report the deceased was only a puppet. Has your child lost his cute dog puppet? Mopsy is resting comfortably with animal control awaiting to be claimed,” she wrote.
On a more serious note, Webb will be taking part in the Walk for Animals in Boston on Sunday, Sept. 11, during which she will walk with several service dogs that have provided comfort and support to handicapped citizens of Wellesley.
