Every dog has its day, the saying goes. Well for Belle, a cute canine who dwells in peninsular Charleston, that day has arrived.

A Florida man vacationing in Charleston snapped a photo of a dog peering out from under a gate. The vacationer posted the photo last month on a website called Reddit, where it eventually caught the eye of Jarrett Bellini, a CNN.com writer-blogger, who decided to track down the dog during a recent visit to Charleston. Bellini met Belle and her owner and posted this story about it on Friday.
