i picked up a male golden retriever, looks to be purebred, about 2 years old, running down the middle fork road in garden valley. he very nearly ate it. i drive this road all the time and he isn't one of the 'locals' i've seen hanging out chasing cars.

i put signs up all over town in garden valley; in the merc and the joint, and a post on craigslist. he was wearing a choke chain but no tags. he is neutered.

next step will be to take him in to see if he is chipped, but i really would like to try to find his owners rather than take him to town to the humane society to get that information.

please, if you know anyone who may be missing this dog, call 283-1254 or reply to the craigslist post.

thank you and have a lovely rainy sunday
