Julia Roberts’ missing dog returned after being found by neighbours.
Never let your mum have a go at you for spending too much time on your phone again, because while technology might be life-consuming these days, it’s also pretty damn useful.
Just ask Julia Roberts.
Yep, the fate of Julia’s beloved dog Major was saved thanks to a community-based app called Nextdoor.
According to TMZ, Julia’s adorable chocolate Labrador went missing earlier this month, but was retrieved thanks to an exclusive social networking site for neighbours.
One neighbour is said to have found Major on a beach near Julia’s neighbourhood in Florida, so uploaded a photo to the app’s lost and found page.
Julia’s husband Daniel Moder is believed to have responded to the user’s original post before the family and Major were reunited. It’s a happier ending than Pretty Woman, we tell you.
And luck appears to be on Julia’s side at the moment – as the actress was recently named People’s Most Beautiful Woman in the World for a record fifth time. There goes our self-esteem.
Admitting she was “very flattered” with her new title, Julia joked that she’d be pointing out her win to George Clooney, who’s only received the male-equivalent accolade twice. Slacker.
She teased: “I’m going to mention that in my Christmas card to the Clooneys this year,” then added: “I think I’m currently peaking.”
