Dennis Lehane's dog goes missing

Missing TessaMissing Tessa

The writer writes tonight:

[O]ur recent and beloved rescue dog, Tessa, jumped the fence in Brookline and has been roaming through the wilds of Coolidge Corner for the last 24 hours. It's possible she's staying in some good Samaritan's home right now or has tucked herself away on a porch. But if anyone sees her or knows of her whereabouts, please reach out to this page. Here's a picture of her. She's smart, fast, and immeasurably sweet. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body. She's micro-chipped, but her tags were off when she was let out into the yard. Naming of character in the next book for anyone who gets her back to us! (No, really!) Again--Tessa, black-and-tan Beagle, 24 hours on the lam, sweet as all hell. Thank you!

    Dennis Lehane's Hounddog

    Retweeted, but wondering is there is a good pic and if Dennis baited his lair with terrifically irrestistable stinky food?

    His story has more holes in it than one of his novels ...

    Beagles on the run

    I spent many hours with my high school boyfriend searching for his beagle. They smell a dog in heat two miles away and go running!

    Put up a fence and they will tunnel under it ... have to look for the holes whenever you let them in.

    Dog Hit By Car Allston/Brighton Tolls

    By on

    Sadly someone posted on his fb that they saw a deceased dog on I-90 near the Allston/Brighton tolls that fits the description of Tessa. Tessa was last spotted on Christmas Eve near the on-ramp in Allston. I am hoping Mr. Lehane had someone check this out - the person who posted it seemed to have a legit facebook account and in all my years of taking the Mass Pike I don't think I've ever seen a dog on the side of the road. Hoping it isn't the case!!

    Tessa's got an Alice Cooper look going on in that photo. (actually she looks better than Alice has looked in years...)
    Hope she makes it home ok.
