One of my dogs wandered off the farm last Wednesday evening. She has not returned home and we've looked everywhere. We have flyers posted throughout our small town and many friends and family are on the lookout for her. Please think some kind thoughts that our Jack Russell, Izzie is returned to us soon. We miss our "middle child" very much.

I just hate when that happens...the wondering what happened can drive you crazy. Thoughts headed your way from someone who has been there and knows just what you are feeling.

So sorry. Maybe she'll find her way home soon and have a story to tell the other animals.

A friend of mine just had her cat of 10+ years not come back home recently. I sure do miss him when I go to her house.

I'm so sorry. Hopefully she'll be located soon and brought back home. My sister went through this a couple of years ago, but luckily her dog was found.

Hope she comes home soon! Have you checked any shelters or the police dept to see if they picked her up?

I am so sorry that your baby is missing! Have you put a "lost" ad in the nearby newspapers? I found a cat several years ago that turned out to be over 10 miles from home - the owner made sure to pick up neighboring papers to look. Definately call the shelters and pound. When my Sadie was missing I thought surely they would call the number on her tag if found, but she lost her collar so they couldn't.

I'm so sorry your middle child is missing. Let's hope she is just having a wonderful adventure and will be home this evening - - probably needing a bath.

out of the frying pan...
Check with any neighbors who have kids. I've known several 'missing' dogs who just got picked up by a kid and carried home without the parents noticing for a day or two (kept in a playhouse, etc.).

Thanks for the good words everyone. Our town in pretty small (population 1200) with one blinking light at the 4-way. : )

We have one neighbor (my MIL) within 1/2 mile of our house. Other two "neighbors" are over a mile away. We have flyers everywhere - school, restaurant, the Co-op, the Mill, Barber/Beauty Shops, both quick stores, Pharmacy. My husband drove everywhere and stopped at every place to put people on notice to watch for her.

We went to the football scrimmage Friday nite and everyone asked if we've found her yet.

I appreciate all the thoughts and kind words. It does help, alot. We can't rule out coyotes, but we are still hoping!

Okie, being a JR...be sure and check a grid around your place in case she went down a varmit hole and maybe can't turn around or back out ...but you could hear her.

Nothing yet. I want my Izzie back! We continue to look for her. I couln't stop looking for her last Friday nite up high in the stands at the scrimmage.

Please keep thinking the good thoughts. We've not given up yet.

No news. cry You know, nothing has more personality than a JRT. Izzie was no exception. We adopted her because she flunked drug dog school (ADHD) and then she bit a grandaughter's duck! We got her because her owner wanted to find a new home to keep peace with the grandmother living next door to her. She has all sorts of ribbons that she won.

Can you imagine how much personality Izzie has? She's a pistol. She goes on the boat fishing with my husband on weekends.

Thanks for letting me vent.

YOu are so right about those JR personalities! My neighbor has 3 and one of my bestest friends has 3 (they are like tater chips..you can't have just one)...and one of my ex's had a menagerie, but unfortunately, they have disappeared one by one as well...they like to hunt WAY tooo much.

I'm so sorry Izzie has not returned. Hopefully someone picked her up and made her their own little package of dynamite personality. I know that doesn't help you, but it's the better of the choices for "thoughts".
