My Lost Doggie

On Friday evening I did not insure that the latch on my gate locked. My elderly, sickly, little, cowardly Jack Russell snuck (is that a word) out and disappeared. She was seen a few miles away (who'd have thought she could go that far! She never showed the least sign of wanting to go anywhere besides to bed or to dinner). Now she is gone forever. I'm heart-broken.

I'm so sorry. I can't imagine how you feel. My dogs are my kids. Fingers crossed that you find her!

Oh Claire - I am so sorry. Our bassett mix is an escape artist and I'm always worried she'll get out too. I can't imagine how worried and upset you are.

Does she have a collar? Maybe she'll get home soon. I'd put up posters or something.

Oh man that's a horrible feeling when your dog gets loose. I hope you can find her safe.

I hope your doggie comes home safely. I hate it when I can't account for any of my furry family.

Putting up posters is a good idea. If you do not have a good picture of her, use a Jack Russell breed picture. You just want to give people an idea of what she looks like. Let your newspaper carrier know that she is missing. Check with area vets. If she is still on the loose, she may find food in the back yards of other pet owners. If you walk her in the neighborhood, she may be in the area of your walk. Hopefully a kind person has let her in, is feeding her, and is waiting for the owner to find her. Just keep knocking on doors. May an ad in the lost/found pet section. Good Luck....our prayers are with you.

I know how you feel. Our dog Duncan broke free on my birthday in November (probably after girls) and we have not seen him since. We think someone took him. You should contact the newspaper and put signs up as soon as possible. Maybe someone will find her. Also check with any local animal shelters, veterinarians, or animal hospitals. Sometimes people turn found animals into those places. I hope you find her soon.
