Dogged pursuits

From the Department of Good Intentions But Bad Timing:

At 5:10 p.m. Tuesday I received an e-mail from Baltimore County warning me that if I did not have a license for my cat and/or dog after Thursday, May 1, I could receive a $100 fine for violating a new ordinance.

Six minutes later, I received another e-mail from Baltimore County – about a cat and dog adopt-a-thon at the county’s Animal Shelter on Saturday.

Sounds like someone is a little too anxious to test the new law…
