Normally, I wouldn’t post about lost dogs from the Cape. Whats the chance of them turning up in Southborough?
But a reader contacted me, wondering if an incident she witnessed this week is related to an owner’s long search for two lost labs that she read about today:
I think it was Monday (but I can’t remember), I saw two loose labradors (yellow and black or brown) on 85 just by the cemetery. They were blocking traffic in both directions. A woman in a silver SUV heading south managed to ge them into her car. I don’t know if she was the owner or a good Samaritan who stepped in to help.
Today, she discovered this post on Facebook today:
It’s now been over 8 weeks since our two Labs, Toby (black male) and Lucy (yellow female) — inseparable 2- year-old litter siblings — escaped through our side… gate and vanished. They are now overdue for their annual physicals and their tests and shots and their monthly heart worm and flea and tick treatments and it’s breaking my heart to think that someone has them who won’t make sure that they have the best of care. SOMEBODY out there knows where they are — so I’m hoping that person will be caring enough to help us find them. Meanwhile a very huge thank you to all my dear friends — and to all you dear strangers — who are not giving up the hope that they will be found and we will have them safely home again. 508 246-9334.
She contacted the owner, who confirmed the dogs are still lost. She also contacted animal control and Baypath Humane Society, and neither had the dogs. So, we’re reaching out to readers in hope that one of you knows something. (Even if it’s to say, “I’m the one who picked up the labs. But they aren’t Lucy and Toby, they’re mine.”)
If you know something, please reach out to the owner by phone or Facebook.
(And if you do help reunite the owner with lost pets, please post a comment. I’m sure readers would love to hear a happy ending to this tale.)
Updated (3/15/15 10:30 am): I heard back from the owner of Lucy and Toby today. It turns out that the dogs rescued in Southborough weren’t her dogs.
Since her dogs were lost from Barnstable, it’s unlikely that anyone in town who will be able to help with her being you reunited with her pets.
