I took care of a puppy for three months for people who found it on the side of the road days before they had to go to Europe for an internship.
Years after I gave the dog back, I returned to the barn where I used to work and the dog was there.
She FLIPPED OUT. The recognition was so obvious people who had never met me were like, "How does she know you?"
Ambitious Kate, I think it takes a special person to say, "just do x and so" when it is so obvious they are doing everything they can. Do you think maybe if it was matter of "just do x" they might have done that before moving their house? Maybe you should organize it and "just" show them how well your idea works.
So sorry to read this is still ongoing.
Yes, BAB, great point about his perhaps being more apparent in fall.
When I got married and had to give up horses, I got into Labs - showed, and had just a couple of litters. One of my original puppy buyers took another from my next litter 3 years later. When I went to drop off some papers, their first "puppy" - a usually well behaved dog, went all goofy when I came to the door. They certainly do remember.
Hoping to see that kind of heart-warming picture for Andy and his family sometime soon.
But he thought, "This procession has got to go on." So he walked more proudly than ever, as his noblemen held high the train that wasn't there at all. H.C.Anderson
Well, I used to be able to see the Facebook page but now it is completely obscured with the sign in form. Don't do Facebook, won't do Facebook. Anyone want to summarize the latest entries for us FB mavericks?
Posted on Bring Andy Home as of 3 hours ago (copied courtesy of my "avatar" on Facebook <wink wink nudge nudge> who is friends with BAH and visits the page every day for the latest news):
Operation new sign campaign has begun to pay off! I received a call which we were able to verify with the tracking dogs was not Andy. This of course was disappointing, and worrisome after this long stretch with no confirmed sightings. For so long some people would say, no way, impossible how could he still be out there?? Well Andy was so regularly being spotted and the calls were so consistent that it was easy to respond with full confidence, yes he is! Well this stretch of quiet phone, nothing leading to anything and of course the fear that the storm had forced Andy into another area thus having to start all over was overwhelming at times. UNTIL...
We received a call this week just outside of Andy's most travelled area, close enough to be easy to relocate to, however far enough to be outside of Andy's most aware residents. So thankfully we had the super team of tracking dogs and they confirmed this sighting!!! They continued and headed exactly where he was reported to have been going.
ANDY has been SEEN!!!!
So team Andy is in action, operation new signs has continued, now with concentration in areas we have confirmed he has been traveling in very recently. He is not heading away, he is heading back slightly to where he was lost and slightly in my direction, though he does not know we have moved here since his disappearance, and doesn't know how close we are, I can't help but look outside in the morning and hope to see his smiling face
I hope we continue to get calls, I hope more people become aware that he is still there, that YES it is possible, and YES if you think you saw him please call! I appreciate each and every call from someone who thinks there is even a small slight chance it was him, it all helps us piece together Andy's ever changing puzzle. A puzzle I so badly want to solve now, in time for Andy to be sleeping under his Christmas stocking once again. It is hanging and waiting for him
Thank you everyone for you ongoing support and faith in our little corgi, the love for him without having met him is so touching and special. He is such a special guy and we all miss him so much and can't wait to have him back home with his family.
xo Jordina, Michael, Hallie, Taz and Andy from somewhere out there too
Ok I just googled a bit and it said that they were bred for herding and eliminating vermin. Which is what I wanted to know.
And I was wondering if anybody has gone out in the closest area he has been seen and used a rabbit call on him to lure him out. Because if he has gone feral and is now hunting for his food he might respond to a call. They are meant to sound like an injured rabbit, and that noise is a huge attractant to predators. Hunters use them all the time to lure coyotes out. You can buy them at any hunting store.
Just a thought, and maybe someone can pass this info out to his owners, since I am not on FB, might not work, but anything helpful right?
