No one has reported to Reading Police that the dog has been found. If you know that the dog has been found, please let them and us know. That would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

This is Joseph S. The most significant is that I am concerned that you are alive than others. WOW, I am really terrified whether I was in your position. I am glad that you just got bad bruises. I desire that I can appear to take care of you and keep you a company because you are my true friend, Jim!!

The man and the dog are fine. I went to the Reading Animal Clinic with my cat on Friday morning and was told that both owner and dog are fine. WHEW!!!
