All citizens mourned the loss of this Mayor
The town of Rabbit Hash, Kentucky, is known for a string of highly esteemed mayors, one of whom died this week. She was 12, and a dog.
The Enquirer reports Rabbit Hash's first female mayor, Lucy Lou, died Sept. 10.
The colorful political figure was a fixture in the media, with appearances on everything from Japanese television to "CBS Sunday Morning."
The collie was elected as the Ohio River town's third canine mayor. She also served as spokesdog for a woman's crisis center.
She served from 2008 to 2016, when she voluntarily stepped down to raise funds to rebuild the historic general store ravaged by fire.
Owner Bobbi Layne Kayser says Lucy Lou brought joy to more than just her family.
