Missing Dog: Dexter [UPDATE: He's Been Found]
I was hoping you could help me find a list dog by posting to your blog. I'm [in the 1700 block of] Montello, and the house next to mine just burnt down for the second time in about 3 months. I was dogsitting Dexter for my good friend who lives down at Florida and Montello. [A neighbor] called me to tell me about the fire so I raced home from dinner. The house was full of smoke and Dexter was hiding. I let him out to the gated front yard but he managed to escape. He's an older Australian Blue Heeler and is not familiar with this end if the neighborhood. I've attached some pics ([second] one is a stock photo, but looks just like him). Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. I'm at firstname.lastname@example.org; 814-512-0078.
Dexter was found in the Arboretum.

Mysterious Parakeet Still Touring NE, Last Spotted in Trinidad
Photo from the original Reddit post reporting a sighting of the parakeet
While the exotic white-eyed parakeet is native to the tropical island of Trinidad, a more familiar common parakeet (often known as the budgerigar) seems to have made its home in our District neighborhood of the same name. Gracing first Gallaudet and now Trinidad with its striking blue plumage, the little guy seems to be exploring NE. While "wild" parakeets are not unknown in the United States (Connecticut of all places has a large colony of green and yellow budgerigars), it seems likely our exotic visitor is an escaped pet and not part of feral flock. If you know of anyone who may have lost a pet parakeet in the past few weeks (he was first spotted August 4th), let them know about our this little guy (or girl). Otherwise, just keep your eyes open for the startling blue among the drab plumage of our more common avian friends. I do imagine he/she might be open to a new housing situation as the weather cools.
