Please Read Lost Dog

10 posts in this topic

On thursday at about 4:00 P.M I saw a 5 month old (looks like a pure breed) Black Lab almost get hit by a car on Hwy 23. I Pulled over and the dog came to me when i said come. I spent the next hour and a half going from door to door trying to find the owner. I found the dog on the north side of Long Lake near Hawick MN on my way home from work in Willmar. I live in Cold Spring so i stopped at the Paynseville Police department and they said they couldn't take it because it wasn't there area. I called the radio stations in the area to put out the word that i had the dog. I called both the kandiyohi Sheriff and the Willmar Police department and none of them would take it. I have called the pounds to let them know i have it. Here is what i am asking of the readers. If you know whos dog it is give me a call. If you know of someone who could give this dog a good home let me know. I have a 14 month old lab/chesepeke mix and do not have time to train a new puppy because we are expecting a little one in October. I know bad planning it is hunting season. I did play fetch with the puppy tonight and it seems someone has done some work with the dog. A good home is all i am looking for. It is a male and like i said it is between 5 and 8 months old. Thanks for reading and good luck hunting. i can be reached by email at sterno21@hotmail.com

Good work, slayer! Glad to hear he's back home again.

I think this should serve as a pre-season wake up call for those of us who need to get our dogs tagged appropriately. As I read this, I took it as a REMINDER FOR MYSELF to make sure my dog has his proper ID tag, rabies tag, etc. on him ALL THE TIME in case something like this should happen at home or in the middle of nowhere (ie, ND grin.gif ).

Thanks, slayer.

K 95 radio station. If your dog gets lost or you find one in the willmar area put word out on the k 95 radio station or the River and they broadcast it over the air. Worked this time. Not sure if other radio stations around the state do this but it seems to work.

A little late but I want to tell you that I think the trouble you went to to find the dogs owner is great. As a dog owner, thanks. I hope someday I'll be able to help someone out in a time of need like you did.

      Rainbows are typically stocked.  Check the DNR for locations.      SE Minnesota, Whitewater, Root river systems have nativized brown trout.     But if you just want meat, go to costco.   Buy them it is cheaper.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
