Kobie has been lost for over a week and a half. A fireworks party with leftover incendiaries several days after the 4th spooked -- terrified -- the large, emotionally fragile dog, a rescue of sorts, who broke out of his yard and ran. You may have seen the pet detectives' van that parked near Morton for a couple of days -- one of the investigators thought the dog was nearby, hiding in a temporarily feral state, the other thought he had run far. Or you may have seen any of the scores of large posters offering the reward. You may have followed with interest the vision of an animal communicator (presumably paid) who "saw" the brindled greyhound-mix near Avon Park Terrace, and the seriousness with which her report was followed by the dozens of Kobie supporters on the Echo Park Animal Alliance list -- and the many offers of help from neighbors who weren't on the EPAA list. Then there was Kobie's owner's plea to the neighborhood to wish for Kobie to be brave and come home. Still, no word of Kobie. Chicken Corner adds its two clucks to the harmony, "Come home Kobie."
