Update: Lost golden girls spotted in Eastlake
"We got an anonymous phone call today (Saturday) that the girls were sighted," the dogs' owner Marilyn wrote me. "She said that they were in her garage and then they took off. I called the Eastlake police."
The missing ladies are a mother and daughter pair, both spayed, who dug out of their fence Thursday and took off near Hellriegel's and Route 20 in Painesville Township.
Chessie (top picture) is a dark golden with a graying muzzle at 11 years old. She weighs 72 pounds, has a cyst under her left front leg, and wears a purple collar with a Lake County license.
Her daughter Star (bottom picture) is almost 7 years old and totally devoted to her mom. She is also dark golden, weighs 68 pounds, and wears a green collar with a Lake County license.
Local authorities have been notified, including Lake and Geauga shelters and Humane Societies, area vets and police departments. Flyers have also been posted, according to Golden Retrievers in Need Rescue Service, or G.R.I.N.
Please contact Marilyn at 440-655-9137 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you spot these lost ladies in your neighborhood.
