DALLAS ATHLETE DISAPPEARS UNDER MYSTERIOUS CIRUMSTANCES!!!
One of the nation's top canine athletes that lives in Dallas is missing, he
mysteriously disappeared from his North East Dallas home.
Sega, more formally known as TriHard's Game Boy, is the foundation of Top
Dog Racers, this years fastest Flyball team in the United States. The two
year old Jack Russell Terrier disappeared Saturday 12/27/97 from the back of
his owners car at their home near the intersection of Barnes Bridge and
Shiloh road. Owner and co-caption Melissa Dailey had safely secured Sega in
his kennel in the back of her car, with the tailgate open to provide a
pleasant breeze. Only minutes elapsed while she went back in the house, but
when she got back to the car, Sega's kennel was on the ground, the door
broken, and the little dog nowhere to be found.
"He is more than just a family pet", points out team co-captian Pam Martin.
Sega has had extensive training and conditioning to make him the fastest
racing Jack Russell in the United States. "Our whole team depends on Sega,
and he's a large part of the reason we're at the top of the sport of
Flyball". Dailey and the team are offering a $500 reward for Sega's safe
return, no questions asked.
Given the popularity of "Wishbone", Eddie on "Frasier," and "Mask", team
members fear someone has taken or found the dog, believing the trendy Jack
Russell Terrier makes a great pet. "They can be very challenging dogs to
train and live with'" emphasizes Martin, owner of two Jack Russells. "The
movie and TV dogs have had years of professional training and have a very
specific jobs to do.
Sega's "job" is Flyball, a team relay race for dogs, invented in California
and governed by the North American Flyball Association (NAFA). The course
consists of a starting line, 4 hurdles 10 feet apart, and a box. The dogs
jump the hurdles and step on a spring loaded box that shoots out a tennis
ball. The dog catches the ball and returns over all 4 hurdles. When the
first dog crosses the starting line the next dog goes, until all four dogs
have run. Top Dog Racers' team record is 17:06 seconds, the fastest time
this year in the United States. The team is sponcered by the Iams Co.
All that pales for Dailey, however, who misses the canine companion who
travels to work with her every day to Sherrill Veterinary Hospital and
sleeps in bed with her at night. "I just miss him and want him back."
Sega is 13 inches tall, 13 lbs, with a short white coat and black head with
tan cheeks and eyebrows. Anyone with information about Sega or his
whereabouts should call 972-279-0801 or 972-278-3985.
Thanks for your time....
Praying for Sega's safe return..........Laurel
