1) B. A 4-year-old ran inside her house to tell her mom that two women had taken her poodle, Pip, according to a report. Her mother says she did not believe her at first. The thieves pulled up in a car, the child says, and asked to see her dog, which she was holding in the yard. Then they took off with her pet, she says. A woman who saw a flyer about the puppy came across the thieves trying to sell it near a McDonald’s, the family says. She bought the dog and returned him to the young girl.

2) D. State law says cyclists should be treated as vehicles on the road, but critics say in an Albuquerque Journal article that they're not held to the same standards as cars regarding insurance, registration, driver's licenses and taxes. Others complain that bike-riders are rude and behave dangerously.

4) C. A man who lives near Lead and Carlisle says the ongoing construction project on the one-ways resulted in a tree falling onto his home. Workers hacked away at three-quarters of the root structure about a month ago, and he says he contacted the city soon after to express concerns about the massive tree falling over when the spring winds came.
