Owner Barrett Griner IV tells KYW-TV in Philadelphia he figured out the mistake as soon as the summons arrived at his Bridgeton, N.J., home. He uses the Roman numeral for four in his name, whereas his dog is named using the letters "I'' and "V."

The Daily Treat: Colorado Town Elects Dog as Mayor

Have you ever called a politician a bonehead? Think the world would be a better place if pets made all major life decisions? Even the ones that have nothing to do with bacon or the mailman? You might want to consider moving to Divide, Colo.

Pa Kettle the bloodhound has been elected mayor of the small mountain town, reports the Associated Press. He beat out 10 other animals competing for the unofficial title in an online race benefiting the Teller County Regional Animal Shelter. Each vote raised $1 for the rescue, and the election also spotlighted groups such as Teller County Search and Rescue (for which Pa Kettle works as a search-and-rescue hound).

"When I found out [about the diagnosis], I was in shock," Cooke, of British Columbia, Canada, told Today. "He watched me cry, and he would get upset when I got upset because he was a very sensitive dog. It took a couple of days to digest, but then I took him to the park, and we started putting together the bucket list."
