  1. Good News! According to the “Lost & Found Pets – Floyd Va.” Facebook Page, they received an email this afternoon from a county representative stating that the Beagle was picked up this morning from Animal Control and released to the owner.
    What a wonderful end to 2011!

  2. This is great news. Thanks etna for the heads up on the missing dog — and especially on his having been found by the owner.
