HUNTING DOGS — Even if the pheasant hunting season weren't days away, Jack Dolan and his wife would be sick that their six-month old German shorthair pointer has gone missing.
The dog ran off after it was lightly struck by a vehicle late Sunday afternoon just west of Medical Lake and the Veteran's Cemetery near the Dolan's driveway at Hallet and Espanola roads.
The dog's name is Chip. His collar was broken off by the impact. He panicked and ran across a field and out of sight. Although there's no collar on him now, he has been micro-chipped and can be identified by a veterinarian.
The family points out that Chip could have covered a lot of ground, so they're posting signs in Reardan, Airway Heights and around the region.
If anyone sees, finds or hears anything that could lead to this dog, please call Dolan at (509) 389-8481.
Dolan, 72, was featured this summer in an S-R story about the extraordinary hunter education course he's been teaching as a volunteer leader for 26 years. This dog, shown in the photo above, is his prized possession.
