From Pet Psychic to Pet Detective...

If you thought we were crazy to listen to two pet psychics, what will you think of our hiring a pet detective?  I  justify our decision by paraphrasing Donald Rumsfeld: we need more troops on the ground! Time is of the essence and we're losing this war against the dognapper.  The bottom line is this: what if Thunder has developed Stockholm's syndrome with his dognapper?  What if he's developed an affinity for the ole grey haired lady and forgotten all about his human birth mother?

Enter the pet detective, a person to follow up on the ambiguous clues left by the pet psychic!  Searching the streets of Madrid for a stone framed wood door, etc., is a full time job.  AND, (paraphrasing Kim in Bye, Bye Birdie) I've got a lotta livin' to do!  Thanks to El Crisis Economique there are a handful of detectives in this city, men who wouldn't have dreamed of looking for a missing canine 2 years ago, who are now willing to switch from tracking errant husbands to tracking missing dogs in exchange for some Euros.  And why not?  Our wise Detective agrees, someone has rescued our dog and decided to keep the little guy. He hasn't surfaced at any of the city's many dog pounds, nor at the police stations, nor at the Vets' offices, nor at the (ahem) dog morgue.  SO... pet detective it is!

In order to cover all the bases we have launched a two-pronged search and rescue mission (paraphasing Rumsfeld or Guiliani...or some other important person in charge of things) to find Thunder.  Here's the ad in the local paper...
See Thunder above to the right? He kind of looks like the dog version of the attorney above and to the left of his ad, doesn't he?

We have not yet begun to fight! 

(Civil war quote? Shoot, who said this? Too lazy to source this quote and too old to remember...Ok...I felt guilty for being too lazy to google a quote... and it's a way to waste some time so that I can't possibly study my Spanish. It's from John Paul Jones to the British during the Revolutionary War.)

Personally I think Ace is doing a bang up job. My Spanish is so bad people just assume I am coming towards them to releive them of there belongings, Dog, or both. Thunder if you are reading this do your magic, bite the old broad and come home. Roxie sends her love.
