3 Months - No Sign of Xena

I have lost 3 dogs in the past 8 months.  One to a rapid onset of ravenous cancer; one after 16 years of living a great life; and Xena who ran away after being spooked at the Frank Ortiz Dog Park on December 21st, 2014.  There is a BIG difference between losing an animal companion and knowing the outcome and the not knowing.  We still don't know what happened to Xena after 3 months and the lack of closure is hard to endure.  Alot of folks have been following this story, so, I felt compelled to…See More

Santa Fe family reunited with stolen dog in Arizona

By Uriel J. Garcia
The New Mexican

Nearly 500 miles away and 12 days after she was stolen from an Eldorado family’s front yard, a 3-year-old mixed-breed dog was returned to her owners on Tuesday.

Orca had been taken March 12 from the subdivision southeast of Santa Fe while 15-year-old Lydia Tetreault-Saez and her sister, Isabella, were at school and their parents were at work. Lydia said Orca had been left outside on a trolley-leash system that day.

After the dog’s disappearance, Lydia, along with her mother, father and little sister, posted signs around Eldorado notifying neighbors that Orca was missing.

No calls came in.

Then, on March 20, a staff member at the Yavapai Humane Society in Prescott, Ariz., phoned to let the family know that the shelter had Orca, a medium-size female dog that Lydia described as a “softer looking” pit-bull mix.

“We were shocked at first because we thought they were calling from around here,” Lydia said in a phone interview while on her way back from Arizona with her family.

The family made the seven-hour drive to Prescott on Monday and picked up Orca from the shelter Tuesday morning.

Lydia said shelter staff members told them a Prescott resident had brought in the dog. The resident, who was not identified to the family due to confidentiality policies, told staff members that Orca had been found wandering around a Safeway supermarket parking lot.

Animal shelter staff were able to locate the pet’s owners due to information on an implanted microchip. The microchip had been placed on the animal at the time the family adopted the dog as a puppy from the Española Valley Humane Society.

Lydia said the family didn’t call police, though they suspect a friend of a friend might have taken the dog.

But she said the family is happy to be reunited with Orca.

“She was super excited when we saw her at the shelter,” the teen said.

Coyote attacks

Just wanted to post a warning to anyone who walks the arroyo from Seville/Balboa Road (off of Don Gaspar between Cordova & San Mateo) - this arroyo goes under Old Pecos Trail and then leads you all the way to Museum Hill and the Botanical Gardens. TWO dogs - one a 75 lb. male Doberman and the other a 40 lb. 1/2 coyote female were attacked by two coyotes in the last 2 weeks. The owners were with the dogs and the coyotes came out of no where.…

Tales of Tails: The search for Xena: What to do when your dog is lost

By Hersch Wilson

Imagine: You’re walking your dog at the dog park, close to evening. Then, for reasons only your dog understands, she bolts. Gone. In less than a minute. You call her, nothing.

Frantic, you begin searching in circles. But then the sun goes down and you’re alone in the dark.

What do you do…
