Mother’s Day Success: Lost Bernese Mountain Dog Found!

Mother’s Day Success: Lost Bernese Mountain Dog Found!

We love to share positive news about our community, and what better day to share a success story of a found pet than on Mother’s Day?

On Friday, May 8th, we posted a “Lost” notice from Marsha Hargrave for “Scarlett,” her missing Bernese Mountain Dog that was last seen in Boulevard Park.

And on Mother’s Day (Sun. May 10th), we post this update about how, with the help of Burien’s finest, the once-missing Scarlett was found and safely reunited with its owner; here’s an email from Marsha:

Thank you so much for posting this.

We have found Scarlett today 5/10 in Burien with the help of your fabulous police officers. They spotted her this morning and called me. They kept her in sight and headed her off out of the traffic.

I hope you can post a HUGE thank you to Officer Garske who was able to finally chase her down and tackle her. She was so scared after all these days out that she kept running.

And a special commendation also to Officer Weekley who kept in touch with me via cell phone so we could coordinate the rescue.

These officers helped save her life and give me the best Mother’s Day present ever!
