Lost blond labrador “Dougal” on Tuesday 26th March

Our labrador of 8 years, Dougal, male castrated, sadly has gone missing from our house in Shanaknuck this Tuesday. Normally he always wers his collar with phone number but this time as he had just been groomed, his collar is missing. He does wear a silver chain, and he is microchipped.
He is a beautiful big blond lab, and we miss him terribly.
Anyone with information about his whereabouts please contact Ronan at 087-3560235
