Family dog found then found again on Internet
October 30, 2002
This is not your typical lost dog tale, although it does have a happy ending and not much else matters but that. No, this dog story is steeped in the Internet, believe it or not. It starts there and ends there. But, this domino effect would have never happened if the Dunn family hadn’t had their Border Collie Domino come up missing in action Oct. 18, the night before Baldwin City’s famed Maple Leaf Festival where 20,000-plus people invade the usually sleepy berg. Domino belongs to the Dunns dad Mark and sons Ian (age 9), Neil (7) and Mevin (5). They got him about six months ago when they tracked the dog they wanted down to a Clay Center adoption shelter using petfinder.org. Oh, there’s that Internet beginning.
