Despite some interruptions (one of which involved me selling the White Lady, but more of that later) we made some good progress today, with the help of a few people, and the reactivation of my old investigative skills and dogged determination…
What we think we know now is that our dognapper does indeed have Jack. We have independent third party corroboration, from someone who was not aware how our unknown friend had acquired my ward. We know the name of his employer, and we are aware that he is based in Kojonup, and was over here last night for a party. Not bad going for a morning’s enquiry. It took me far longer to track down Rong Fang Zhang.
Time to call in a favour from the big guns.
A visit to the Katanning Godfather, who if he does not exactly owe me a favour, has reason to be pleasantly disposed towards me. He makes a phone a call, and his contact confirms that he is aware of the person concerned and that he has a recently obtained a dog. Once apprised of the circumstances he gives an undertaking to sort things out.
I guess that is progress.
