Stable of dogs


Carol Schmidt, of Bemidji, Minn., seen here at home in January 2012, said she took in her father’s stable of dogs after he died. “If it wasn’t for my dogs, I probably wouldn’t be here,” she said at the time. Officials met with Schmidt after authorities conducted a welfare check and found more than 50 dogs and some cats living inside two mobile homes on her property. Schmidt was allowed to keep seven of the dogs. The rest were taken to a shelter. Forum News Service file photo
