UPDATE: Willie’s been found – info removed.
From a reader: “Darryl is lost in the White Center area, crossroads SW 100th st and 20th Ave SW. If you see him, please don’t chase or call him as he is very anxious. I can be texted at 206-600-2124. Thank you for your help!”
We found this amazing puppy in our yard. Took it to the vet; no chip, and no collar either. Someone must be really missing this warm, friendly, very fun puppy. Our blind lab loves her too.

His name is LittleBear
He’s an indoor/door outdoor cat but has never been gone this long before
Usually wary of strangers
He is microchipped – last seen Saturday afternoon 1/22
Between 4th Ave S & 1st Ave S

Did you add a pet to your household in 2021? From the database of everybody who did, and who registered that pet with Regional Animal Services of King County – which serves unincorporated North Highline and many other parts of the county – we have the top 10 pet names of the year:
This year, King County residents have registered 66,279 dogs and 27,020 cats. Here are the most popular pet names:
Top 10 Dog Names
Top 10 Cat Names
This list comes from pet license applications submitted to RASKC, which serves nearly one million residents living in 24 cities and unincorporated communities throughout King County.
If a licensed pet is lost, the finder can call the phone number on the pet’s tag – a service that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – to quickly reunite them with their owner. Pets receive a free ride home the first time they’re found, allowing owners to skip a trip to the shelter. Pet licenses also help fund RASKC and the important work it does.
In addition to handling lost pets and injured animals, pet license fees contribute to RASKC’s other vital duties, including animal neglect and cruelty investigations, spay/neuter programs, pet adoption services, and other work to humanely and compassionately assist local animals.
You can purchase pet licenses online, or at more than 70 convenient locations around the county, including many city halls and QFC stores. Learn more at Regional Animal Service of King County’s website, kingcounty.gov/pets.
Via email: “Our long-hair chihuahua went missing from White Center downtown when we took her for grooming on Monday at 6 PM. She is all white except two brown spots on her hind leg and tail.

Pigeons – and their people – took over the White Center Eagles‘ HQ for much of today. The occasion: The Greater Seattle Pigeon Racing Club‘s winter show. Honors awaited:
But first, the judging:
As noted on the show flyer, pigeons were judged in nine categories:
You may be more familiar with the term “homing pigeon” than “racing pigeon” – that’s what these birds do. As explained by Sarah Stuteville via a story on The Seattle Globalist, during racing season, the birds are taken to points around the region, and records are kept of how long it takes them to find their way home.
From the inbox:
We are missing out 2 female dogs since 4/13/19.
Last seen White Center/Top Hat area off of 3rd Ave SW and SW 102nd St. and possibly 1 Ave S.
They are both Microchipped and registered with Home Again. They both had their collars with Tags and Harnesses on. They were in a secure fenced yard but the area is unfamiliar to the Dogs as Burien is home for them. We are asking for help to try and find our family dogs. Please call or text 425-361-9295
Claire e-mailed to say, “We found this pit looking male dog on SW 116th and 12th in White Center/Burien. He has no name tag and he is not chipped.” Your dog? Call 206.931.3387
From King County Parks:
King County Parks and the King County Sheriff’s Office are joining forces to ensure the continued safety of all visitors to the County’s vast network of parks, trails, and open space.
Sheriff’s deputies are now patrolling parks, including those with natural surface trail networks like Cougar Mountain Regional Wildlife Park, as well as regional trails like the Sammamish River Trail, to emphasize compliance with leash laws.
Per King County Code 7.12.410, dogs must be on-leash in all park and trail facilities, unless in a designated off-leash area. Deputies will issue citations to violators.
Especially during these busy summertime months, it is important for dogs to be on leash when visiting parks and trails. Not only does it reduce potential injury to your best four-legged friend from unexpected encounters with wildlife or other dogs, but it also decreases the likelihood that your dog will ingest plants or berries that could make it sick.
Dog owners are encouraged to visit King County’s Marymoor Park, which features a 40-acre off-leash dog area that consistently ranks as one of the region’s best, and additional off-leash areas can be found in parks throughout Seattle and surrounding cities.
By following this simple rule, all park and trail visitors can have enjoyable experiences, whether they have two legs or four.
