Letter to the Editor: Still looking for lost dog
I want to thank all of you that have been helping to search for my lost dog Cracker these past six weeks. So many have called offering help and encouraging us not to give up hope. After hearing what happened to Cracker, the breeder that gave him to me called and offered to let me have Cracker’s cousin “Boo,” another 4-year-old Blue Merle Australian Shepherd.
Boo is adorable and quickly becoming a loved member of our family and we are so thankful for her generosity in entrusting Boo to us. I feel like I’ve been given a second chance, and the deep ache in my heart is beginning to heal the more time I spend with my new little “Boo Bear.”
Because Boo looks so much like Cracker I didn’t want people to mistakenly think I had found Cracker and stop looking or start taking down the lost dog posters. We are still diligently searching for Cracker and desperately want him back. He is irreplaceable, dearly loved and I hope and pray he will find his way home. I want to thank all of you for leaving the posters in place as long as you have. I know they are an eye sore.
I have been told by all those in the dog rescue business, and by many people living here in Truckee that because this is a resort community it is very common that a stray dog is found by a tourist visiting the area and is taken back home with them out of the area, and only when those people come back for another visit do they see the posters and finally call to return the pet.
It could be months before they come back so we ask you all to endure the posters as long as you can so that whoever took Cracker will be able to see them and will know the number to call to get Cracker back home. Thank you all for your kindness and your help during this most difficult time.

First, thank you for the quick notes, some so quick that the breaking news we’d been sold had barely made it online. I read a handful of well-wishes, what’s-going-on, you-OK emails and texts while still…
