Default SO upset right now, could really use some good thoughts.

As most know, my dad has been keeping Bailey for me since our apt. doesn't allow dogs her size.

He informed me today that she got out about a week ago and hasn't come back. He went around the neighborhood and went to the shelter, but nothing.

She's old. Almost 14, deaf, almost blind, and its been in the teens here at night this past week.

I have a friend going to post on her FB rescue page to see if anyone has seen her maybe. I only have older pictures, I don't have any newer ones, I never really thought about taking any, I never really thought about this happening.

A few people have said that it may be that she is gone, she's old, she may have ran off to die.....

I can't let go, I'm not ready. I had a plan, the house was going to be built by summer and she would come home to live out her final days with us, where she belongs. Not now, it's not how it was suppose to work out.

That's terrible, I am so sorry, the poor baby! I made a wish for her safe return on my wishing jar. It has special powers.

Keep looking! When my now passed Aussie was 12, we came in the house loaded with groceries one evening and I did not notice my 6 y/o daughter failed to firmly close the door. We looked everywhere. 8 days later, as I was starting to think I would never see him again, he came home. Just meandered back into the neighbors who came running to get me.
Hoping that something similar happens for you!

Exact same thing happened to someone I know a week or so ago with an old Boston Terrier and he turned up 4-5 days later and was just fine. You'd be surprised how hardy they are even at that age.

Can understand your stress and heart ache. Keeping you and Bailey in my prayers. Is it possible that Bailey tried to return to your previous home? Dogs have been know to go home to an old home. Hoping for a safe return of Bailey.

Wow I am so so sorry.... What a horrible thing for your dog and you!

Sounds like he did what he could, i would gather more people and try again?

I am going to suggest something that we did for a dog that was adopted out and got loose on he hands of the adopters (she is terrified of people in general so getting her was a challenge).
But the staff wen't around the town where she was let go and went door to door, we did searches a few times a week with hot dogs and a few people for hours. We put posters up, facebook, the vermont porch forums, etc. And finally we used a have-a-hart trap, which worked because she was hungry enough to go into the trap.


I hope and pray that you find her..
