Richard King - who is a fan of my Facebook page - has asked me to blog about a distinctive and beautiful lurcher called Petula who it appears has been stolen from Bath Dogs and Cats Home.
Petula is still very shy and timid after her experiences before she found security at the kennels from where she appears to have been stolen after hours on June 24, 2011.
You can read more about Petula - and if you are in the UK you can download a poster to advertise her loss - at the DogLost website.
Blogger seems to be playing up a little at the moment and won't let me add a picture. But you can see Petula on my Facebook page or on the DogLost website to which I've added links above. She has very distinctive black and white markings on her head.
