    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    We desperately need hawks & barn owls in neighborhoods! With a lack of natural predators, there are options. I had a nusance problem with squirrels. There are people that contract their services for critter control.

    Also, did you see the Ch. 5 news last night? They're killing/kidnapping dogs in Lincoln Co., MO.

    Dogs Disappearing In Lincoln County
    Updated: 8/29/2005 11:18:30 PM

    There's a mystery near Winfield, Missouri. Someone may be stealing dogs, and perhaps selling them for medical research. And, several other dogs have been shot.

    In the last 3 weeks, Lincoln County Sheriff's believe at least a half a dozen dogs have disappeared from homes in the Winfield area.

    Loralee Schultz's 9 year old rotwieller "Tasha" disappeared three weeks ago. "I've had another neighbor that came to me looking for his dog. That's how we realized there was a pattern."

    Now, Shultz says she isn't letting her other dog "Luke" out of her sight. "They're not allowed out to go potty on their own.", says Schultz.

    Lincoln County Sheriff's investigators believe the dogs, all of them large breeds, may have been stolen for clandestine reasons. Though he has no solid evidence, Lt. Rick Harrell says, "A lot of these animals could be resold to medical testers."

    Harrell notes that Lincoln County doesn't have leash laws for dogs, and thieves know it. "This is the ideal environment for a thief. A lot of times it's as simple as opening the door and the animal will jump in."

    Frustrated and worried dog owners are doing anything they can to spread the word about their missing pets. In fact, a Winfield variety store has become a clearing house of hope.

    On its front door, a reward is posted for the person who shot and wounded "Stormy". And across the street at Cookes Sinclair station, Susan Pearia still wants to know who shot her dog "Dakota" 6 months ago. "He had been missing for 3 days, he made it home and he ended up having to amputate his leg."

    Dog owners say they've searched the wooded areas and side streets of Winfield, looking for their missing pets. They hope to solve a mystery, before another dog vanishes. "She's just a big baby. We've had her for a long time. We just want her back," says Loralee Schultz.

    The squirrel incident is very unfortunate. Thank you for exposing some of the everyday inhumanity that from which some(i.e. the property owner) seem to derive sadistic pleasure.
