Are you kidding me? A lead story of this type, after the tragedy in Cheshire?

Surely there must be more important things to write about.

These two women need to kiss and make up. How about visitation rights??

Lawyers use their title to intimidate and bully their adversary. It's a shame this tactic constantly spills over into matters that should be a bit more "civil".

Nice. So these slimy lawyers have decided to keep a child's dog after it ran away. All because it'd make a nice companion for THEIR fluffly little beast of a lap dog.

Do the Borrinos have children, or are they the sort who make their pets their "kids"? I don't see how a parent would do such a thing, to take another child's dog away. Once they knew that the Good family definitely wanted their dog (a whole day later), they should have done the classy thing and given her back.

I assume the Goods have paperwork from when they got Lexie. In absence of a firm verbal contract to transfer ownership of the dog, it seems to this non-lawyer that their veterinary and other records mean the dog is theirs.

Definitely a slow news day.

Give the dog back!

The Borrinos find a stray dog and don't even bother to call the police. Strike One!

They offer to buy a family pet? What's next children? Body parts? Strike Two!

A matter of principle? More like a matter of no principles. Strike Three!

Give the dog back! And don't bother buyong another, because you don't deserve it.

Hurray for the Courant. The Goods will have to wait months for this to be resolved in court. The only way to get Lexie back is to shame them into it by exposing this matter to the public.

Slow news day or not, the Courant is doing the right thing. Keeping a child's dog is one of the most selfish acts I've read about. Can't wait for this to hit the national news.

What would Judge Judy say?

She'd say, "How could you even consider keeping this dog. Give it back! And do it now."

Give the dog back!!!

Even when you want to buy a house or car there is a grace period to change your mind. No matter what was actually said between the women, when the lawyers found out the this family - with children - wanted their pet back, they should've complied. And the comment that the lawyer felt that the dog would've been in danger is just garbage!

There are millions of dogs who need good homes. You don't offer to buy someone's pet. Take an hour, get off your duff and go to the local shelter and get your pet a companion there!

why would Good leave her dog with Borrino in the first place? If the dog was such a beloved pet why would she even consider giving the dog away - imagine how her daughters felt when she came home from the Borrinos and told them she let them keep the dog overnight to see how it would work out if Lexie was their much-loved dog. I would probably give the dog back myself but makes me wonder about the mom's intentions.

Give the dog back. Just because your a lawyer doesn't make you right. Go buy another dog. This is shameful that this is a lead news story. Grow up, and set an example for all reading this story.

Without knowing all the facts, I would say err on the side of the family and give the dog back. Something about the entire story is wrong, but the fact remains they are the owners, per se. OK MR and Mrs Attorney, unless you want the reputation of a pair of weasels, GIVE THE DOG BACK!

I would never feel right keeping a dog that the owner wanted back within 24 hours. Lawyer lady and lawyer husband should just do the right thing - return the dog. Why make this a legal matter? I hope this article will embarass them into doing the right thing.

The article didn't say whether money actually changed hands. Even if it did, after one day the "seller" should have the right to change her mind. The dog should be returned to the Goods. The Borrino's dogged determination to keep the dog seems, well, piggish.

My thoughts are the same.
Why did the mom agree to it in the first place. Did she collect money?
I would give the dog back because of the kids. I'm sure they had nothing to do with the transaction the mom made.
