To the Moab community, I lost my young boxer mix the afternoon of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at Johnson’s Up on Top. I would like to thank my friends, their friends, and all the other people who searched for and kept their eyes open for my Jack.

Animal control, the Humane Society, both veterinarians, city workers, students, parents, postal workers, linemen and construction workers, four wheelers, co-workers, horsemen and women, hikers and dirt bikers and scores from social media were all watching for my dog.

After two long days he was spotted stranded on a ledge. I have heartfelt thanks to Mel and Mike for getting him down safely. I would like to express my gratitude to all these people for returning my pup and strengthening my faith in the kindness and goodwill of the folks in the Moab community.
