PRODIGAL RETURNED — Thank you for helping me get my dog, Sparkles, back. I put it down to the power of PROBE. After it came out in the paper, I got almost a dozen phone calls from people with tips on where she might be.
Then one evening, a car drove up and a little girl got out with Sparkles. I planned to offer a reward but she said she didn't want anything, went back to the car and left.
I don't know who was happier — me, the dog or the neighbors. It was like the prodigal child returned. Sparkles was in good shape except for being dirty. So it was first the reunion and then the bath. — Reunited, El Centro
Give our regards to Sparkles. Here's another dog story with a less happy ending.
HIT AND RUN — The driver who hit a part pit bull puppy and fled the scene is worse than a terrorist. Fifteen children saw you hit the puppy on the corner of Sixth Street and Olive Avenue. They watched as you stopped and then drove away, leaving the puppy suffering.
