Yesterday I went to take Cheri to the DTLA LAPD Dog Park. This particular dog park is not gated, but is the only area in DTLA that is full of grass for dogs to play and roam. Letting your dog there off leash is not encouraged, but many owners do. I let Cheri off leash, because she is old and usually just grazes the grass like a cow. As Cheri and I were chilling, this black puggle thing comes out of nowhere and starts roaming, playing and sniffing the other doggies in the park. After fifteen minutes or so, and no owners in sight, I asked the ladies in the park if blacky was there dog. That was a negative. We then realized he was lost or missing. Blacky was somebody's pet for sure; well mannered, and nicely groomed, and a cool collar, but with no tags! After taking his picture to post on Facebook, in the DTLA forum page, a fellow DTLA neighbor and I were going to walk down Spring Street to see if we could find Blacky's owner. As we were leaving the park, a woman in a truck stopped and screamed, " Is that Six?" Well, it sure was! Apparently, Six was rolling in the backseat of this woman's car, who was dog sitting him, had the back window down and Six saw the park and darted out the window to come hang at the park. Six did all that without the woman even knowing at first. Talk about determined! Thankfully Six was found, but this situation could have been a lot scarier, especially since he had no tags. Hopefully he would have been microchipped, as all pets should be but having tags is also as equally important, especially if the dog is not yours. I am sometimes guilty of not having Cheri's tags on when walking her and letting her roam, bad gurl- now I know. Having tags on pets can save a lot of heartache and agony. So let this be a lesson for all-keep it safe fellow mammals!
