Dog collar belonging to President Warren G. Harding stolen from Ohio home

By Associated Press Published: June 12, 2012

MARION, OHIO: An antique dog collar belonging to former President Warren G. Harding's beloved pet has been stolen from his historic home in central Ohio.

Marion Police say the thief broke into the 29th president's home Tuesday morning and took only the collar, which belonged to Harding's Airedale terrier named Laddie Boy. The collar was made in 1923 and has the dog's name engraved on raised letters surrounded by hearts.

Officials say a groundskeeper found a ladder propped against a second-story window. They believe the thief has visited the home before and knew where to look for the collar.

Police are circulating images of the collar to see if it turns up in a store or on the Internet.
