The death of a loved pet can be a traumatic experience for many families. Dogs and cats become a special presence in their lives.Some grow up with a household's children as they mature into young adults and may even appear in graduation photos. Others may be a special companion to an older couple in retirement, going on trips with them in RVs or sitting on their laps during a movie in the living room.When they die, it can be difficult to know what to do next.
PHILOMATH — For several years, Philomath ushered in the holiday season each winter when Christmas lights illuminated a tree at Main and 19th. "With that tree, the lights just went on," longtime resident and Philomath Area Chamber of Commerce board secretary Marcia Gilson recalled, making reference to the old sequoia that came down largely in part because of the couplet project. "The cool thing about this tree is this has become a ceremony and a community activity.
Just after one week arriving at his new home at the Philomath Police Department, Percy spent some quality time with a local teenager who had been a crime victim. "She sat down on the floor and spent probably a half-hour with Percy," Philomath Chief of Police Ken Rueben said. "It was her first introduction to the police department and we talked about her case, but we had this dog here and it was just very comforting.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
