    the dog ran away tonight

    my wife took her down on a walk down to starbucks to get some coffee. when she went in, she tied skully to a table. she was only going to be in for a minute. well, as soon as she did that, skully took off running...attached to the table still even! we drove around for an hour and a half and walked around handing out fliers and posting photos on phone polls. we've contacted the animal control and left a message at the county humane society. tomorrow, we'll check vets and other shelters. the sun is starting to go down, so there's not much else we can do today.

    Sorry you lost your family member, hopefully she will show up in good shape and ready to play.

    I hope you find him soon. It's no fun having one run away for awhile.


    Maybe he heard tell of the "Cone Collar" reunion, in town this week:



    Though, be thankful he's only got the Tu-Tu instead of the collar:

    She'll turn up, as dogs are more resourceful then we give them credit for...you'll have her tomorrow.
    Tonight she's probably having dinner and 'dessert' with some German Shepherd...you know how those Germans are...

    I'd be worrying too, but they almost always find a way back.

    Did she have dog tags?

    Even a rabies tag can be tracked back to the vet.

    Bummer. My dog ran thru the side gate as I walked out Sunday afternoon. Naturally, when I called him, he flipped me off and took off for the woods.

    I screamed after him "FINE - I hope freakin' snake bites you!" Oddly enough, he turned around on that one and came back...

    Yeah, when we last saw her, her tags were still attached. She's also microchipped. I know, if someone finds her (as long as they're honest), I'll get her back.

    I'm worried more about her getting hurt somewhere or someone finding her and deciding they don't want to give her back!

    Good luck in getting her back. Next time, she may want to tie her to a car.
    It took me several months to find a 'show dog' puppy that I had that a neighbor let out of the back yard. He was a skiddish jumpy dog after living that long in the country on his own.

    Good luck and I hope you get her back. ...and when you do get her back...train her more. You should be able to tell her to stay and she should park her furry butt in one place and NOT MOVE NO MATTER WHAT. Wyle Coyote should be able to drop a piano right next to her and she snubs him unless you give her the go code.

    Yea, the table went with her. In the parking lot, it hit a car and the part where it was tied came undone. The lady who's car it was handled it very nicely. She was very friendly. My wife says it was just a small dent.

    At any rate, she's half husky half english mastiff. she did have a tag when she ran, whether her collar stayed on or not is another question. She is micro-chipped though.

    We've called around to local shelters and animal controls. No one has seen her. The vets I've talked to are on the lookout also. So far, no one has called us regarding ANYTHING. I take that as a good sign. We don't really live in a remote area, if she was hurt, or dead, someone would have noticed. She's also registered on HomeAgain® - Always looking out for your pet so the notice that she's missing went out to all the vets and shelters within a 25 mile radius. As long as someone honest finds her and turns her in, we should know about it.
