    NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - It's no lion, just a big pooch with an unusual doggie hairdo.

    Police in Norfolk, Virginia, report getting a call about a lion on the loose. But it was just Daniel Painter's Labradoodle named Charles the Monarch. The pooch has a cut that looks like a lion's shaggy mane and is the color of a big cat.

    The Virginian-Pilot reports police even called the Norfolk Zoo to make sure their two lions were in their cages. They were. Painter jokes that he tells people his dog is a "lab-a-lion."
