Dog takes bite out of youth club funds

[OFF THE POST] Cosmo, a 5-year-old Lab-German Shepherd mix who likes to eat paper, chomped up hundreds of dollars worth of cash and checks after discovering a bank deposit bag filled with fundraising money for the West Seattle Soccer Club, whose president is Cosmo's owner, Bill Fry. After watching "each scoop of dog poop," as Fry put it in a letter to parents, a $50 bill, torn into two, was recovered from a "pile in our yard."

Fry also found a wad crumpled $20 bills that Cosmo had buried in the yard -- to snack on later one assumes -- and his wife washed and fanned out the nine bills. But of more than $600 in cash, only $230 were recovered.

None of the more than 20 checks -- which taste even better than cash? -- were recovered. Fry will cover the loss, but encourages those who wrote checks destroyed to write replacements.

    Kind of gives credibility to the "dog ate my homework" story.?

    How about "what a crappy outcome"? :)
