SHERMAN OAKS (CNS) - Supporters of a Sherman Oaks man facing cancer surgery appealed for help today in finding his missing dog, certain it will lift his spirits and help in his treatment.
Cooper is a skittish 55- pound male Australian Shepherd who disappeared a month ago today, wriggling out of his collar as he was being walked by his owner, cancer patient Gordon Carnie, 60, said family spokeswoman Susan Beck. The 6-year-old dog was last seen the next day running in the middle of the street in the 14700 block of Ventura Boulevard.
Carnie has lived for four years with pancreatic cancer and is due to undergo surgery Nov. 6. Cooper is regarded as a member of the family, and his absence has been emotionally stressful for Carnie, she said.
Signs asking for help finding Cooper have been plastered throughout Sherman Oaks for a month, but to no avail. The family now has decided to try to put out a general call for help via the news media out of the belief that someone may have taken in Cooper and would be happy to part with him on becoming aware of Carnie's plight.
Anyone who finds Cooper should call Carnie's wife, Janet, at (818) 486-6895.
