Missing Cocker Spaniel in Stowe… Found

“Our dog went missing a couple of hours ago. She is a black cocker spaniel, about 30lbs and is named Game. She wears a red collar and an invisible fence collar (battery must have run out); our number may be written on her collar (lost her tag a few weeks ago). She is very friendly and has a lot of energy. We live on Sinclair Drive in the Stowe club highlands so I would think she would be in that area. If anyone happens to see her or has her at their house please call. Thanks so much.”
• Joya, Stowe Front Porch Forum

“We found our dog so quickly thanks to this wonderful, tight-knit community that we live in. Thank you to everyone for your tips and concern 🙂

Montpelier community reunites lost goat painting with owner

 “I painted a canvas for my aunt’s birthday and lost it today. It was on the roof of my mother’s car and has my initials on it (KAL 01/17). It is a gift and only the second time I’ve ever painted. If anyone finds it I would be super appreciative!”

Almost a week later, a FPF member posts:
“Found Painting on Ground Near Bike Path – Yours? With initials KAL.

Doing dishes in the bathtub while watching squirming baby… Mad River Valley problem needs solution

“I have a crack in our kitchen sink drain pipe. So now I can’t use the sink and I’m doing dishes in the bathroom. I have an 8 mo old and the dishes are piling up!!! I haven’t been able to get in touch with any plumbing services and I fear I won’t hear from anyone until Monday at this point. I tried plumbing tape, but it didn’t work. HELP would be so appreciated! Whether a number for another plumber, a suggestion for how to fix, or better yet, someone who can come help since DIY plumbing while watching a squirming baby is really hard!!!”

Thousands of business recommendations flow through Front Porch Forum

“A few weeks ago I posted on our Front Porch Forum seeking recommendations for XC boots in our area, and several people wrote to say Onion River Sports was the place to go. So we went there and, sure enough, my sister found the perfect boots. The salesperson patiently helped her get fitted properly, and, after years of XC skiing, she says these are the best boots she’s ever had. Yay for Onion River Sports and FPF posters. Thanks again!”
