Wednesday, March 27
Back in November, Chesty, a terrier/beagle mix, got loose from the O'Donnell's yard in the Bristol and Mearns road area. Initally, readers reported sightings of Chesty and signs were plastered all about the neighborood, but the chatter has mostly died down.

If you have any information about Chesty, contact the O'Donnells at (215) 672-1296.

"We've got two other dogs, a 7-year-old rat terrier and a chug, a chihuahua/pug mix. They want him back home." The public was first made aware that Chesty, a rat terrier/beagle mix, had gone missing from a blog posted by Mary Alice Brancato on Nov. 19. Readers voiced their support to the family in the comments, and a few claimed to catch a glimpse of Chesty in a few different spots. The tips did not result in the return of Chesty, unfortunately. O'Donnell has also sent out notices through his various e-mail networks, posted a message on Craigslist…
