capotebones

“Dear PoPville,

My friends’ dog Capote bolted after they were involved in a serious car accident early this morning. He was last seen wearing a red harness and blue collar, heading toward the woods on BW Parkway near 95. They suspect he may have gotten into Greenbelt Park. The owners are both in hospital at the moment and completely broken up about this as they can’t search themselves. Local animal shelters are being contacted. If you’re up in the College Park/Greenbelt area, please keep a lookout. Please send sightings to [email protected]
