Claudia Mamet's Dog "Boots" Has Been Found!

I posted this news on an update last night before going to bed, but I want to post it again so that friends will see the good news. An anonymous comment from South Africa (according to Site Meter) first alerted me at 8:02 p.m.:
Received the great news this morning that Boots has been found!!
At first, I couldn't quite believe the news because I'd seen Claudia earlier at work, during the morning, and she told me that she'd heard nothing. I tried to confirm the news by searching the internet, but had no luck initially, and since I assumed that only Claudia herself would be contacting me if Boots were found (but puzzled that the comment would have been routed through her South African home), I asked at 8:43 p.m.:
Claudia, is that your comment? I ask because this morning when we spoke, you'd heard nothing yet.

Can you confirm this?
Thirteen minutes later, at 8:56 p.m., I confirmed it myself:
It's confirmed! See the update.
Claudia somehow managed to get thousands of individuals -- both Koreans and expats -- involved in the search for Boots, and she found him!

An amazing woman.

Ambulance chasing, Mr. Davilla?

Only a couple of weeks behind the event . . .
