You would think this was a pretty easy question to answer, right? Usually, it is.

UPDATE: TOBY HAS BEEN REUNITED WITH HIS OWNER!   My name is Tobie and I'm a nice West Highland White Terrier.  I went out for a walk on Cottontown Rd in Forest, VA on Saturday November 5 and a kind lady picked me up so I wouldn't get hit by a car. I had a great weekend: went to doggie daycare, had a bath and my nails were clipped. I'm having a sleepover with two other terriers until I can get home. I'm really friendly but so far no one seems to know where I live. I have a name tag with phone numbers that aren't in service. I'm on facebook, craigslist and the Bedford Humane Society's website. Westie Rescue will be coming to pick me up soon. If you know who my people are, would you tell them I'm ready to come home now? -Thanks, Tobie
