Cokie Roberts’ new dog found dead
Katie, the black Lab adopted Saturday by journalist Cokie Roberts, was found dead today near a Bethesda middle school, apparently having been struck by a car.
Stephen Push, of Labrador Retriever Club of the Potomac’s, said Katie had been hit near Thomas W. Pyle Middle School. Her body was found about 9 a.m.
“We are so terribly sad about the news,” Roberts said in a press release.
Push said Katie, about five years old, was identified and pronounced dead at a veterinary clinic.
During the search for Katie, rescuers found another lost dog, which the club has taken in, the Washington Post reports. If no one claims the dog, Push said, the rescue group will place it in a new home.
