Lost Dog update

Hubby wasn’t up to walking round to see if the little dog had been found, so we decided to get in the car armed with a lead we’d kept and some cheese in lieu of dog biscuits and drive back up to the Nature Reserve and other park to see if we could spot her. This was at 6.45.
The car park was locked so we backed up and parked near the church, and found a public footpath that took us straight to it.

Maggie would have loved it there, and we never knew it existed. No ducks or geese, but plenty of trees and walkways, so lots to sniff and explore.ย  Our park is nice, but this was much bigger.
No sign of our Houdini though, so Hubby walked along the footpath to the little footbridge and I walked back to collect the car and meet him at the other side. That way, we covered more ground.

I’ve walked about four miles today, and feeling it, but I was so worried about the little dog, I knew we had to do our best to find her. We weren’t lucky, so drove round to the owners house and hoped.

There was barking coming from inside and she was safe!!
Her owner had intended to drop in tomorrow to let us know, and was so grateful to us and everyone else who had been keeping an eye out for her. The couple who had walked her were beside themselves, and he managed to grab her once, but she squirmed out of his arms and ran away again. Sightings suggested she was looking for her Mummy, and when the owner got back from her appointment, she was going to join in the search.
I don’t know exactly where or how it happened, but the dog saw her and went flying into her arms. She is now exhausted having been out for over three hours.

I shall rest easy tonight knowing she’s safe…………… and nibbling on the cheese anyway.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Glad this was happy news and the dog was found.

  7. *phew*! The little stinker! That’s why it pays to make sure the leads and collars are secure, especially if someone besides ‘mom’ or ‘dad’ are walking them. Not that the poor people were at fault, things just happen sometimes. I’m glad she is safe!
