I was in my car today and the radio station I was listening to was getting the word out about a lost dog-giving all the info about the dog and really urging folks to be on the lookout for the dog, and also was promoting it on their Facebook page. So please add local radio stations to the list of places to notify. This radio station was in Maine, I do not know if this would work in a big city like LA or SF, but it is worth a try.

Sam, thanks for bringing this info forward again. :th-up

Hopefully, we will never need to use this list, as a reference, for our own beloved pet!

Please cover your Cocker with insurance. I use Home Again, but I am sure that there are other valuable sources as well.
