Dog Not Rabid – Front Porch Forum Rocks!

Ellen posted this on her local FPF today…

Man on Railroad Bed Sunday… Our son was biking on Sunday with a friend and you were walking with your 2 black dogs between Marshfield and Plainfield on the railroad bed. Your dog bit our son and we don’t know if your dog’s rabies shots are up to date. Please call immediately. Thank you.

And her good-news follow up posting…

We immediately got a call from the dog owner who was watching FPF for a note about it!! We are so relieved and grateful to know his dog is vaccinated! Front Porch Forum saves the day!




Emergency notices on NY FPF

Last Thursday’s extra posting on FPF (an alert to the village’s water shut-off) saved me a much inconvenience. I was preparing lots of food for a big family reunion meal. Thanks to FPF’s alert, we had drawn a goodly supply of water before the shut-off came. Although the Post Star newspaper and the hand-delivered notices came on Friday, the Argyle FPF was our first alert—and it saved me a lot of frustration.

The folks in Argyle, NY make great use of their Front Porch Forum, as shown by today’s posting above.
