The friendly hound dog was reunited with his owner at 9 PM Sunday.
This was thanks to our lively on-line area "magazine."
In addition to news, community calendars, event coverage and editorials, CM provides a 'Lost and Found" service. I posted the above photo of the hound in mid-afternoon, giving his description, our location and phone number.
I was just out of the shower and into night clothes [after my strenuous time with the carpet removal] so didn't go out to speak with the man who arrived within moments of speaking with J. on the phone.
He lives a few miles from us, on the other side of the main highway, and had dropped in to visit a friend of his who lives up the road from our place.
Evidently the wily hound followed him cross-lots.
Whether the dog's owner saw the post or was notified by his friend--a man whom I know to be a CM reader--the outcome was a speedy reunion.
I probably don't have to state that I am greatly relieved to have one less animal-related issue to sort.
It is good to know that the amiable hound is back where he belongs!
