Unusual Meteor Has Strange Impact on Dogs

Early Friday morning, Sarah Johannsen made a call to Icelandic authorities. 

"It was like nothing I'd ever seen... not only was there a big bone in the sky but my dog recognized it and believed it was a bone." Johannsen isn't the only one who noticed it. 

People living near the Arctic Circle called authorities en masse, wondering if they should be concerned about the "treat-eor." Even more concerning, however, was the fact that most, if not all dogs who saw the meteor started to chase it and form packs. 

"These packs are becoming a real problem for people in the Northern Hemisphere. Not only do owners want their dogs to come home safely but dog start to behave differently when they're in packs. Labs and Dachsunds alike are beginning to regress back to their wolf-like pack-hunting behavior."

The news gets worse.

Experts believe the meteor will almost certainly land somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico, making its away over Canada and the United States before it finally plummets closer to the equator.

This means that all North American dogs are at risk of chasing this object. If you don't believe it, that's fine, but you should be prepared for unruly behavior. The last thing you want is for your dog to get loose as the treateor passes overhead. 

If they break free, you run the risk of losing them forever. 

Communities near the southern border of the United States are preparing for massive hordes of dogs to come rambling through their towns. Lockdowns are even under consideration. 

The Lolahemp Team's Suggestion

We at Lolahemp suggest that you stock up on calming chews, litter them around your yard, and allow passing dogs to eat them freely. If the dogs are calm when they pass through your town, there's a chance that their relaxation will overcome their pack-mentality.

Then, and only then, will you be free from the roaming treateor pack.

April Fools!

There is no treat-eor and dogs aren't following one. If you made it this far, you deserve a little treat yourself:
