If you’ve never had a pet, today’s recommendation probably won’t mean much to you. But if you’ve ever cuddled up to something furry and then lost it, you’ll know that it can be a horrible time.

Recently former Spice Girl Emma Bunton lost her chocolate Labrador while out walking and one of the many organisations to lend help was doglost.co.uk.

This is a nationwide database for dog owners to hook into if they lose their pet. You can also get in touch with it if you find a stray.

With more than 40,000 volunteers ready to help find your dog should it go walkies without permission, this is one of the best ways to get reunited with your errant pooch.

We Brits are be a bit soppy about man's best friend (but we'll never apologise for that) so this one might be a useful bookmark for anybody with a four-legged friend.

If you have a useful, funny, or just plain weird website that you want to tell us about, drop us a line using our feedback form.
