Talking They found my inlaws dog

I am breathing a huge sigh of relief right now. Over the weekend my inlaws dog ran away. My FIL was taking her to the groomer which she hates. She freaked out and got our of her collar and took off. My FIL is sick and can not run or even walk very far so he was in no condition to chase her, not that he could have caught her anyway. This dog is not the smartest animal and has never really been far away from home so we were not sure if she would know how to find her way back. She is also very skittish around most people (even though she is the sweetest dog) so someone actually getting hold of her seemed unlikely. Well I just got a call from my wife that someone her mom works with just spotted the dog in the woods and while I was on the phone with her they were able to catch her. I am just so relieved!!!

That's great GB!
It's a burden when your animal is gone and you don't know where they are and if they are still alive.

Yaaay for your in-laws and your family. I can just imagine their dog from the way you describe - my Shelby would probably do something like that, and I'd be heartsick too.......

Don't you dare ever scare me like that again!!


Phew, that is a great news GB!! I know what kind of terror this sort of thing causes, our hamster escaped a couple of times, how panic stricken we were even though he was sure to be somewhere inside the house with no other predators around... imagine if your pet wandered off to somewhere out there!! I am glad the story ended happily!!

Thanks everyone! We have been holding our breath for days. She is such a timid dog and has never really been out on her own. Tonight it is supposed to get very cold so I am just so happy that she will be inside before that happens.

Yikes, I have bad dreams about that situation. If my beagle ever got out of the yard he'd be a goner. He actually lived on the streets for w while before I adopted him.

I am so glad you found her.

Have you considered a microchip? I haven't done it because my dogs are old and don't get out too much, but things like this make me reconsider.

it is far more difficult to get a microchip to go for walk, and a lot less fun than a dog.
jenny, you need to get out more...

LOL bucky

Their dog is a beagle too Jenny. Yeah I will suggest a microchip to them. We have two cats. Our younger one has the chip. I think it would make a lot of sense to have that put in during the next vet visit. Great suggestion!
