A woman with epilepsy was joined by her 91-year old neighbor in a search for her lost dog on Wednesday. The animal alerts her to the onset of a seizure.
The little Yorkshire Terrier, named Sidel, bolted out the front door of her home on Kimbrough Drive, near Airline and McArdle, at around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. The dog hasn't been seen since.
The yorkie has the lion-mane head and her backside is shaved. She's blonde and gray, and does have a microchip, which can be taken to a veterinarian for identification.
Rebecca Yale, Sidel's owner, said she suffers from epilepsy. Sidel detects the onset of her seizures, and Yale has been walking up and down Kimbrough Drive in hopes that someone might have seen her dog.
"I am hoping and praying, if someone has her in their home and is keeping her, and trying to figure out what do with her, if you have Sidel, please, could you please bring her to the dog catcher or the City, or Humane Society," Yale said.
91-year old Margaret Barnes normally takes a walk around the neighborhood everyday, but now her walk includes looking for Yale's dog.
"We were starting to walk and I said, instead of going for a walk we'll hunt for the dog, and we knocked on doors and talked to different people," Barnes said. "In the first place, I love dogs, and I know how much they loved her, but she is a medical assistant."
So far, there have been no sign of the little pooch, but anyone out there who has the dog is urged to call the Yale family at 206-948-9910, or turn the animal over to a veterinarian or the City Animal Control.
