Quotes from the news wire:
At first, I thought that was a joke and contacted a few friends, and then, when no one claimed it, I realized that that was something that was sent to me as some kind of a message.
They obviously didn't know me because they sent me a size three which is for beagles and I'm obviously a pit bull, which requires a size six.
