Law Fail: the defense of “Finders Keepers”

From the Yahoo answers page.  A recitation of the law of “Finders Keepers.”

What is the exact phrasing of the law of “Finders Keepers”?

I am preparing for my court case next Monday and think this piece of information could be crucial to my case. Its a long case so I’ll give you the short and sweet version:
1) I found a small black dog in my backyard.
2) My neighbor seems to think it belongs to him.
3) He claims it answers to the name “Shadow,” but after numerous tests, I disagree. *I’m planning on doing the test in court to wow the jury*
4) Also if the dog happened to be his at one point in time, by the law of Finders Keepers, it is now mine.
5) The neighbor has a wife and two small kids, so I think he would be too busy to adequately take care of the dog.
So as you can see I’ve got a pretty solid case here, but I really want to drive it home with the exact legal definition of Finders Keepers, which has been hard to find. Any lawyers or Law and Order buffs out there?

It’s “Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers”. If that doesn’t WOW them, try the nah…nah…nah…nah…nah law. And last, but not least: I know you are, but what am I?
