Strange Rodent Dog and another Wyoming Cowboy Boot

Saving Casey Serin Another Awesome™ , Juicy™ , SWEET™ cowboy boot photo from lovely Cheyenne, WY.

Also, here is the story behind my Exurban Nation query:

...Actually, I'm concerned Blogger might have eaten my comment link (behavior similar to last Friday's 6 Degrees of Casey Serin™ game) so I'll just post this as-is for now. Further details to follow.

Comment link seems to work, but I'm having an ADD/Casey moment due to the latest news regarding the humpback whales.

K, this is the strange and disturbing story I heard from a friend of a friend of a friend (questionable potential “Urban Myth” of course):
Last weekend she and her husband were sailing in the Bay and discovered an abandoned dog swimming in the water and rescued it. While they had good hearts and intentions, they apparently didn’t know much about dogs and lacked dog food, so they felt it wise to leave it unfed in the garage for the evening. Early the following morning they woke up to the most peculiar screaming/moaning sound they’d ever heard; the dog was busily chewing a hole in the garage door and clearly upset so they decided to take him/her to the vet. Upon inspection, the vet said “This is most definitely Not a Dog. It is a large Rodent from Indonesia thrown off a ship“ and should be put to sleep for further post-mortem analysis. Concerned about disease risk they went along with this agenda. After “euthanizing” the animal and analyzing the data, the vet called them back and said “I have some good news and some bad news. Good news is that the (dead) rescued animal is disease free. Bad news….Well, one question: “do you have a cat?” Answer was “Yes.” Vet says “Have you seen it recently?” No, they had not because it was found in the stomach of the huge rodent perceived as a dog.
Urban myth?
Also, any idea what sort of enormous rodent resembling a dog cruises from Indonesia to Cali-land and jumps ship (or is tossed off?) at the last moment?

It was probably some sort of beaver.

Heh. Beaver.

I recommend perusing the menu at a local indonisian restaurant. You might see it there.
