Family's urine bid to locate dog

A family who tried to lure back a lost dog by leaving a trail of their urine on streets near their home have been criticised by the city council.

The Baltesz family, of Clifton, Bristol, lost their 10-year-old pet labrador Simon on the night of 4 July.

When Simon failed to return, the family chose their unorthodox method.

A Bristol City Council spokeswoman said: "We would not consider this to be a good idea from an environmental health point of view."

Louise Baltesz, 43, said the whole family had been "chipping in" to help lay down the scent trail.

She said she was aware of criticism aimed at the family, but they were willing to do anything to get Simon back.

Is there... like... any logic to this? I mean, how much opportunity has the dog had to familiarize itself with the scent of its owners' pee? If the answer is not "very little," then clearly I am misunderstanding the culture of pet ownership.
Anime is kind of like fish in that it is better the less "fishy" it is.

I'm sure it's a house full of bedwetters.
