Dennis Lehane isn't the only Bostonian who lost a pooch over the holiday week: Chef Ming Tsai's prized labradoodle, Buddy, also went missing while strolling through Elm Banke in Natick. Luckily, this story has a very happy ending, thanks in large part to the "positive energy" of Tsai's legions of Twitter followers.

"After 3 hours roaming the woods, Buddy must have gotten hungry and came back to the exact area where he ran off! Prime rib for Buddy 2nite!" Tsai tweeted after a legion of fans retweeted his plight. And apparently Buddy really enjoyed his meat: "He is considering getting lost again today!!" Tsai informed his followers. Can we find him and get a free meal at Blue Dragon?
