New dog-gone service

I received a recorded phone call last week about a lost pooch in my neighborhood. The message included the name, breed and appearance of the dog, the owner’s name and phone number and a reference to this Web site: www.lostmydoggie.com/.  (Sorry it’s not a live link, the link button needs a tuneup today.)

Turns out the site (for a fee) broadcasts phone calls through varying distances and puts the word out for pets besides dogs. Seems like a good business idea to me. I’ve got my eyes out for a cockapoo and have saved the phone message in hopes of calling the owner with happy news. If your beloved Buttons or Bowser is missing, check out the site’s services.

By the way, you can see a picture of the dog and get details at www.theislandofalameda.com.
