Dear PoP – Remove Lost Dog Signs When Dog is Found

“Dear PoP,

On July 25th you were kind enough to alert readers to a missing dog in Columbia Heights. I had seen the signs around my block and was delighted to read an update on your blog that the dog and owner had successfully been reunited. As a dog owner, I can barely imagine how upsetting it must be to have your dog go missing. That being said-I naturally assumed that the owner of this dog, overcome with the exuberance of being reunited with their beloved best friend, would take the time to walk back through the neighborhood and remove the signs that are plastered on every street corner. I feel that it is disrespectful to enlist the help of the community and then to spit in its face once you have achieved your objective.

I’d like to kindly suggest that the owner take their dog on a well deserved victory lap around Columbia Heights and remove all evidence of the traumatic event.”
