  • TO: PERO PERDIDO OWNER:
    FIRST OFF, I AM SORRY THIS DOG IS NOW LOST, AND HOPE SOME GOOD SOUL FINDS IT AND RETURNS IT, SAFELY.

    REMINDER (to careless pet-owners-- and you know who you are):

    There are just too many-- an epidemic of lost dogs (mainly little breeds which fend the worst) in this ward (and elsewhere).

    Animals are NOT toys, entertainment for kids. If you get a dog (and do please consider ADOPTION before breeding/ pet store's), realize that they are a life-long responsibility.

    'Letting them out': make sure you have them on a leash or in a completely secured yard (that goes for the gates too). Better yet,
    take them out on a healthy walk so they won't feel bored (and barking excessively!) or pent up and needing to run (so that they 'escape' when you open a door or gate).

    Pets can get into as much trouble or more, as unsupervised children-- anyway, they are part of the family. More and more, I see lazy people letting Fido out the door to 'do their business'-- no care that cars are whizzing by their houses, the dogs running right out into the streets!

    It is a sad, hard fact, that dogs are now being stolen right from their yards for dog-fighting, for sale to laboratories, so make sure you know where your 'beloved pets' are AT ALL TIMES.

    SPAY & NEUTER (since many 'unfixed' dogs will often try and try to escape--and, eventually succeeed); we don't need MORE roaming and breeding animals (shelters are overfull)!

    I.D. your dog (nothing that can easily fall off)-- or microchip. A dog license and rabies tags also help. (Some way to trace the animal back to you if it should be lost).

    A city is not some sleepy little village where everything is safe and Fido (like Lassie) will 'come home'-- I have mentioned spotting a Coyote this past year, in THIS area).

    BOTTOM LINE: This 'careless culture' of pet 'ownership' has got to stop. Don't just say your dog is 'your baby'--take care of it properly! They totally depends on you to do so.

    So do so!

    I might have seen your dog this morning, but I cannot be sure. It was at Keeler and 55th. The dog I saw looks like this dog. I will try to see if I can find it again, but you also might want to come up and look. If I see it I'll keep it for you.
