It appears that the notorious dog vixon Puddles has competition from a golden retriever named Dux — a dog that has torn a family apart and led to a son calling police to arrest his mother, Margareta Doughty. The arrest came after protracted litigation over Dux and his . . . well . . . “doggie essence”.
Margareta Doughty is a breeder who claimed part ownership in Dux. This led her into litigation with her son and daughter-in-law, Melanie and Tyson Doughty. Ultimately, there was a settlement where Margareta to visit Massachusetts for seven days to take Dux to a veterinary hospital for a DNA sample and pre-freezing semen evaluation. Her son would then agree to return to the hospital within 40 days for sperm collection, which they would freeze and store. In return for Dux’s sperm and rights to his progeny, she gave up any ownership rights. However, after she failed to return from the hospital, her son called the cops on Margareta who was found at an airport with the hot pooch. It is not clear whether the dog was taped to her body under her clothes like the scene in Midnight Express, but it is thought that he was in a crate.
She will now be charged with larceny. Her son could also charge her with conversion or trespass to chattel in a tort action. For his part, Dux is back with the son.
