Yeah, my ad just said, "Found dog; April 12 at (location). Female, medium sized, collar, no tags. Email ______ or call _______."

I'll ask my mail carrier, and I'll call around to everyone today--great ideas!

We won't be keeping her. It'd be irresponsible right now. I'm looking for a job, my boyfriend's underemployed... we've got enough in savings for one-maybe-two dog emergencies. Adding a third dog wouldn't be right.

Finding her did make me take a sharpie to the inside of all of our dog's collars and harnesses, though. The collar-no-tags thing is irritating.

She got out of the (locked) crate in the middle of the night, and was chilling in our garage this morning, pleased as punch. That might explain something.


Terrible photo of Houdini dog.

Thanks. We're working on it.

She's so quiet and easy in the garage, though. If one of our two were out there, they'd be screaming their fool head off.

Found dog is silent.

I always hold back at least one obvious detail. For Pepper it was the spots on her tongue. I hope you find the owner soon, and that the owner is someone you want to find. Fingers crossed for happy endings.

Well she may still be trying to figure out if you're going to eat her. That whole honeymoon grace period thing

On the posters I made, I didn't mention her ears or her white chest blaze. :]

I called a lost dog poster, but it wasn't her.

Weirdly, I didn't mention the color of her collar in the CL ad, but all four people who responded were looking for dogs in pink collars. None fit her description, though. White-buff poodle mix, she is not. :[

I do think that's what she's saying.

She also said, "I haz no interests in kibbles. Give me the chicken livers pls. I see that you havs them."

We just got back from that! We talked to everyone, but no one recognized her. All of my neighbors said they'd been meaning to come by and say hello, but wanted to let us get settled in first. We've lived here over a year. We went to the city chambers, but they were closed. Monday we'll go back there, and we put up more signs and stuff.

Now I need to call vets and stuff.

I just got a hit off my flier--her name might be Scooby! Hopefully, her person is coming to get her right now!

Edit: That was her person! She's home now. She lives like two streets over.

Thanks for the help, everyone.
