This Update has no Update.

     Nothing.  We looked and looked and looked. Nothing but fur and a dead end blood trail.  If we had done so many things differently we wouldn't be in this situation.  We can't change what we didn't do, we can only control what we do.  Sadly, that doesn't help.  I just want my dog back.  I just want my dog...

  1. Oh Longstory! I'm so, so sorry. I can offer no comfort except the possibly tiny comfort of knowing there are others who understand this kind of pain. I will envision your dog safe and loved in the arms of the Universe.

  2. Dang it, Longstory. I am so sorry to hear that. :( The "coulda, shoulda"s are the most difficult. Hang in there, girl.

  3. Thanks, she's probably still alive but she has gone so far away from us that we can't find her.

  4. Heart-breaking to read the outcome so far. Holding you close in my thoughts dear girl.

  5. Oh my! I also didn't figure Coco would be the one to run off, but you said there is a blood trail. Sound like maybe she was defending her turf. How far are you from the old place? If she is hurt, she maybe headed for her safe place?

  6. Sometimes if a dog is hurt or something has frightened them they go into hiding and no one can find them, my first dog once disappeared for more than a week. Desperately hoping she comes home soon, or someone finds her and brings her back, and keeping you in my thoughts.

  7. Still hoping. Coco may very well be okay and just far away... dogs have made it home from very far distances before... we can only hope and pray.

  8. Oh. Heart is breaking here for you. Hoping and praying that she will be found.

  9. Does she have her tag on with your phone number and address? I know it doesn't help worth a hoot, but many of us have had beloved animals that we've lost and we all wish we could come help you search and give hugs. There is hope.

    1. No, mom hadn't put her tag on her yet. I can guarantee that she'll be wearing one from now on.

  10. Two thoughts:a rider on horseback can cover much more ground much faster than someone on foot, especially in back country, and especially if the rider is familiar with the terrain. This is why riders are used in searches in back country. A rider with a good dog along is even more effective. Which brings me to my second thought. Are there any tracking dogs in the neighborhood? Perhaps these are useless thoughts, but they cross my mind as I think about what I'd do if I was trying to find a lost dog in the woods. Also, don't give up hope.

  11. Since the farm is new to her, maybe check around the old farm- she may have instinctively headed that way. Don't give up, she's a smart cookie. **hugs** and hope from Texas.
