    Even if you don't turn him in at the local shelter, call them and file a "Found Dog" report. That way if the owner comes to them looking, they have a record.

    Emily, our paths must have just missed crossing. I worked at EPF the summer of 2000 or '01 when I was home from college. I had similar experiences with GR.
