Asking Tough Questions: Bay City Soldier's Mom Allowed To Keep Dogs 7-12-2010

WNEM TV5 has learned the mother of a Mid-Michigan soldier soon to be deployed overseas has been allowed to keep her daughter’s dogs.
Bay City threw in the towel regarding the enforcement of a city ordinance that says no home within the city limits can have more than three dogs.
Marion Laur had been asking the city to let her temporarily keep her daughter's three dogs, as well as two of her own dogs, until her daughter, U.S. Army Spc. Adrienne Shooltz, returned from a year-long tour of duty in Afghanistan.
Laur had looked to City Hall for a chance to the ordinance.
Like any proud mother, Laur said she's happy to be helping out back at home while her daughter serves her country.
“My daughter is serving her country right now,” said Laur. “This is the least I can do for her is take very good care of her animals that she left in my care.”
City officials had originally given Laur until July 8 to do something about the dogs, but that deadline passed without any action being taken by either side.
Last Friday, Laur was granted an extension because so many city commissioners were on vacation.
Now Laur's wish has been fulfilled, but details on how long she'll be able to keep the dogs -- temporarily or permanently -- are not known.
