Doggone It

When you’re out of work and desperate for funds, learning you’re getting unemployment benefits is a God-send. It’s even better if you’re a dog.

The owner of Ryder — a German Shepherd in Saugatuck, Michigan — was surprised when his pet got a letter confirming eligibility to receive financial assistance. It seemed the pooch had recently lost his job at a local restaurant.

The trouble is, dogs don’t work at restaurants (or anywhere, for that matter). The owner tipped off authorities and the case was closed.

Unfortunately for Ryder, that also means there won’t be an extra cash coming in for treats and squeaky toys.
