Another pooch on the loose in Ravenna/Roosevelt/? (Update: FOUND)

UPDATE (August 19): Good news from Matt in the ol’ inbox this morning!

Got him!

A few kids playing soccer at Eckstein Middle School called with the tip, and my wife Susie went and scooped him up.

Thank you to everyone who kept a lookout for Buddy. And three cheers for Eckstein students!


These are, indeed, the dog days of summer: I’ve another lost dog to report.

From reader Matt:

Our dog Buddy ran away from the dog sitter in Ravenna Wednesday evening August 10th. He’s a small (nine pounds), tan and white male Havanese. He has a brown leather collar with tags, and he’s microchipped too. He was last seen bolting north across 65th towards Roosevelt High School. He’s pretty timid, so please don’t chase if you see him.

If you see him, please call 954-7260.

Lost dog in aisle 3: Pooch found near Trader Joe’s [HAPPY UPDATE]

UPDATE (Saturday, 12:27PM): Just received word from Patrick that the cute pooch’s owner has been found!

I wanted everyone to know that through the power of technology (microchip inserted in the dog), the internet and all of your participation we were able to reunite the dog we found with its owner (in less than 24 hours!)

Good work, everyone.


Missing anything?


My wife and I just found a small male dog down near the Roosevelt Trader Joe’s [4555 Roosevelt Way NE] at 4pm Friday 13th. He had no collar but is clearly someone’s pet. He’s well mannered and responds to people.

If this is your dog, or you know who he belongs to, contact me at I’ll put you in contact with the kind folks who’ve picked up your pooch.

Thank you to Patrick for the email and the picture.

P.S. This is Patrick. He’s an artist. I am really enjoying looking at his work.
