"Soldier returns from Afghanistan to learn his beloved dog is gone" "About a year after joining the Army, Harker got the playful lab over Memorial Day weekend in 2011, while he was at Fort Benning in western Georgia...." "...Whenever Harker was in the United States, Oakley would go with him. And whenever he deployed, his beloved dog would be left with a friend. That's what happened last year, when the lieutenant left Oakley with someone he described as a "good friend" before he headed off to Afghanistan. "Every time, while I was gone, I asked about him," Harker said, recalling how his friend would insist Oakley was "doing good (and) acting like his regular self. "I'd ask for a picture every now and then. But I never got any pictures sent to me. Harker learned the truth as he was flying back to Joint Base Lewis-McCord in Washington." http://www.cnn.com/2013/07/27/us/washington-soldier-dog/index.html?hpt=hp_t2 Link to his Craigslist Plea for help finding his microchipped dog (with more pictures): http://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/pet/3956713351.html Posted to Seattle Craigslist "I was told this happened in May, but it could have happened anytime from February till June." I hope it's ok to post this here, I figure if anyone can help this soldier be reunited with his dog, our Websleuthers may be able to help spread the word.
