Friends and Strangers

So many people have been offering to help! I am truly blessed and feel so positive we will find Booth. 

In addition to my street team this afternoon, Rebecca Ellis and Gina Lohr both volunteered to bike around Rock Creek Park after work today to see if they could get a spot on Booth! Thanks, ladies!

I should also thank John McCarthy, Christy Riccardi, Andrea Carroll, Niki Irish for springing in action Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Amazing friends!

And, most importantly, the strangers who have emailed advice, called to say they are looking, and have taken time out of their busy schedules to post flyers or look for Booth. THANK YOU!!! 


Back from canvassing

Super tired, but feeling positive thanks to everyone's help!  

Huge thanks to Paula Arevalo, Jenny Hutcherson, Pauline Hutcherson, Nina and Josh, Claire, Amanda, Nikki Elston, James Bullock, Megan, Ellen Heier, Veronica Morales for coming out to help me.

We put out nearly 500 flyers in and around Glover Park, Burleith, Cathedral Heights, Observatory Circle and Embassy Row. Fingers crossed!

Heading out to canvass and look for Booth

Derby and others are meeting at 5:30pm to go look for Booth and let people know he is missed. If you can make it, even if it is later, just give me a call or emails.

Booth's "Brother" Misses Him

Derby is my other sheltie, and he misses Booth terribly. He has not been eating and not interested in playing. Please help us bring Booth home!

Getting the word out!

Thanks to the kind people who have been helping me generate awareness of Booth.

Sighting at 9pm Tuesday!

Last Sighting: Tuesday night at 9pm Booth was seen by a man on Massachusetts Ave NW. He ran away into Rock Creek Park on the trail near the Italian Embassy. Please keep a look out if you are biking, running, or hiking in the area. 

I have updated the map too. 

Canvassing Area of Booth's Last Sighting

Today, we will be canvassing the area where Booth was last seen. If you are able to help, I will have flyers and tape. People will be gathering about 5:30 in front of Stoddert Elementary.

Please let me know if you can assist us and when you would be able to come.

Stoddert Elementary School is located at NW Calvert St & NW 40th St.

Booth is Missing!

At 7pm, March 5, 2013, Booth bolted while on a walk in our Glover Park neighborhood. I pursued him for about 2 miles in circles before losing sight of him a New Mexico Ave NW and 42nd St NW. I managed to stay about half a block behind him, then other people started helping me. Unfortunately, they chased him and he ran faster.

Sightings by others on March 5, 2013: At 7:30pm, someone spotted him on Foxhall at 7:30pm running toward Georgetown. Then, a few other people reported him at Cathedral and New Mexico Ave NW at 8pm. There was also a report that he may have been on Klingle and/or 44th Street in that area. Finally, someone said they spotted a black dog at 8:30pm or so on Observatory and Massachusetts Ave NW.

I have only had Booth for 2 weeks. He came from Kentucky, so he is very new to the areas. Booth is a tri color Sheltie, black with tan and white markings. He has a broken white collar on his right shoulder.

Booth is about 14 inches tall and 17 pounds. He was wearing a leash and harness! He did not have tags or a microchip.
Booth is 2 years old and very timid. He will run from you, so you have to approach very slowly. DO NOT CHASE! The best way to get him to come is by kneeling down and lightly tapping your hand to your leg.

If you see Booth, DO NOT CHASE! Contact 859-608-8002 or email immediately. Spread the word to help find Booth!
