Officer finds lost best friend

I would like to thank Mercer Island Police Officer Brian Noel for some help he recently provided me with, for a relatively small but anxious matter. My family was out of town, so I had left our dog door open while I was at work. We have an invisible electric fence, but I had forgotten to attach the shock collar to the dog and she was nowhere to be found when I got home. After checking with the neighbors and driving around the neighborhood calling her name with no luck, I called the police department to see if anyone had found a lost dog. They hadn’t, but I gave them my information just in case. About a half hour later, Officer Noel called me to say he had found our dog. Through some expert detective work, he had learned that she had found some new friends at a beach club near our home, and thinking she was lost, one of them had taken her home. Those who love their pets will understand the relief I felt and the gratitude for Officer Noel’s help.
