Oh Claire, I'm soooo happy for you. What a feeling to know that she is at home in the arms of those that love her so.

Thanks for sharing!

WhOO HOO,I am so happy for you,I knew there still was hope.OMG you must of allmost fell over with joy.
Last winter in Texas a woman lost her dog by where I lived for my job people would see her hiding by the river but nobody could get near her not even kids so I went down to river across highway and threw some scrambled eggs and sausage didnt see her at all.The next morning she was at the ranch foremans house he called me as she would would not go near anyone.He said the owner said she like cheese so armed with a big chunk of cheddar and knowing her name I drove over.I got out of my truck with cheese and baby talked to her, here is the real key to getting her close I lay flat on the ground on my side posing no threat.She came up and ate cheese got her in my truck and took to my fenced in yard in minutes she was sitting besides me on the porch as if she was my dog. I called her owner and she came out in a couple of hours she lived at least 80 miles away.I missed the reunion as I had to go to work but was never the less proud of my abilities to catch her when no one else could.

Wonderful news, Claire. Bet your doggie is happy to see her family and eat some good food.

Claire, it took me a long time to read your thread...because by the title I knew it was going to be very sad. I wasn't sure I was up to it. I finally read and felt so bad for you - I am SO happy you have your sweet pup back home. Please keep us updated.
Practice random acts of kindness.

Prayers work and are answered. What a miracle. I just would be beside myself and could not let her out of my sight. She must have got everyone's thoughts about hanging on to return to you. Oh, I can hardly believe it. This is better than winning the lottery for me. Having such a little treasure returned is something words can't express. Give her gentle hug for me. Tell her I missed her too.

Claire; This is the first time I saw the thread. I read it all the way through, knowing from my own experience, and from the loving person I know you to be, that this must have been devastating to you. And yet, your posts showed a keen sense of bravery, and love, and realizm. The joy you must have felt at being contacted about your live freind, I am overjoyed. I just hope that your little jack-russel will bounce back fully. He is after all, one of those fiesty little dogs bred for hunting, with and indomitable spirit, and tons of energy.

I'm glad he's home.
