Bikini-clad pet owner appeals to public to help her find lost dog

BikiniWhen her dog disappeared eight days ago, Arlene Mossa Corona searched the neighborhood, visited San Diego County animal shelters and even consulted a pet psychic. No luck.

Now she's hit upon an idea to get the public's attention about her lost chihuahua, Chispita.

The 20-year-old Mesa College student is standing on a busy corner near her apartment in La Jolla wearing high heels and a bikini and holding up signs appealing for information. So far, she's gotten a lot of looks from motorists but no information about her dog.

Undeterred, and against the wishes of her family, Corona is back on the corner this chilly Thanksgiving morning.

"I'll do anything to find my Chispita," she said.

Anyone with information is asked to call (760) 702-2718.
