Two Colorado neighbors both had pet dogs, and jobs requiring frequent travel. So they had an arrangement for many years, where they took care of each other’s dogs when either was out of town. Then they found out they had been breaking the law all along, and could face stiff fines. Like many other states, Colorado required anyone who cared for a pet to have a license and pay fees. But the law made no distinction between a large commercial kennel, and a neighbor or family member. One of these neighbors looked through the Lens of Liberty, and realized her private dealings with friends were none of the government’s business. She took up the cause and convinced the State to change the law, so that helping your neighbor take care of their dog is no longer a crime. Good job
