July 5th is typically a mop up day. It’s hard to work a case when you’ve been up past midnight and you would have needed to start a search before dawn. This year seemed to generate more missing cats and dogs than previous years, and I failed to catch up with responding to all of the requests. The heat makes it hard to schedule searches. Although we couldn’t help everyone with advice or searches, I still tried to keep up with the postings on the Lost Dogs of King County Facebook group page. Most of those dogs were eventually found, but not all. It was a day of rest for the dogs.
