Patch (@DeidreCA)

Dog’s best friend is a man with a Twitter account — at least when the pooch is lost. The information network helped reunite a Jack Russell terrier named Patch with his owner Deidre Anglin, after the dog took a ride on the Irish Rail.

After Patch’s 20-mile ride from Kilcock to Dublin, word of his arrival at the last station quickly spread across Twitter when Irish Rail posted a "Lost dog!" tweet and a photo. The tweet generated more than 500 retweets over 32 minutes, and Anglin saw it.

Irish Rail later tweeted a reunion photo of owner and pet (above), and Anglin shared snapshots of Patch on the way home.
