Oh, those wacky Brits! I’ve heard about putting dirty laundry & linens out in your yard to help lost animals find their way home by catching your scent. That seems like a good idea. The Baltesz family in Bristol took a different tack.
They left trails of pee in their neighborhood to help their dog, Simon, find his way back to them. Everyone “chipped in”. No luck getting simon back, so far, but I admire them for their dedication and ingenuity
