Thanks to the people at the Sure Shine Car Wash on Main St, I was able to find my dog. The owner had posted "Found Dog" signs on the telephone poles. She took him to her home overnight, which I am thankful for because it was very cold last night. Thank you for posting this for me. I am very grateful.
