Backtracking a bit, the dog, now named Alley, snarled traffic more than once along Interstate 635, LBJ Freeway, near Marsh Lane. That was about the same time The Lodge conducted its annual bikini car wash to benefit area pet rescue and adoption groups.
Hang with it, it all comes together.
One of the guys who tried to rescue freeway dog was Richard Hunter, whose wife, Sunny, works as the manager of VIP services at The Lodge. They, too, recently adopted a dog, this one a former bait dog working for Michael Vick, but that’s another story.
Anyway, comedian Hal Sparks made an appearance at The Lodge that coincided with the car wash. He and Hunter, the male, took another go at rescuing freeway dog and, with the help of volunteers from Operation Kindness, succeeded.
Club owner Dawn Rizos — who already was taking her Chihuahua, Pedro, to The Lodge — adopted freeway dog, Alley.
So, hurray, a stray dog, a strip club, a happy ending, and not that kind.
Bruce Felps owns and operates East Dallas Times, an online community news outlet serving the White Rock Lake area. He hopes to be reincarnated as a dog that Dawn Rizos adopts.
