I haven't been able to get on much recently to make my own threads as I am smack in the middle of a house move (yay!) and working a ton of hours too so I never got around to posting about this
Toby, Bailey's brother, went missing on 18/7 and I was absolutely mortified. He bolted for the front door after seeing a fox and everybody went on an enormous search for him. I contacted rescues, dog wardens, the RSPCA, various online organizations to help reunite dogs/pets, made ads on preloved and gumtree, posted EVERYWHERE on Facebook etc. I tried just about everything
I did not get a wink of a sleep. I had such an awful headache the next day and I had to go to work. I got to work and just burst into tears so my boss told me to go home and carry on with the search as she knew I wouldn't be able to work well in the state I was in
As I walked through my front door I heard Jack on the phone. He sounded like he was going to blub. I thought no no no no, he's been hit by a car, or something. But I freaked out and started asking what was happening and who he was talking to and he told me it was the dog warden and she has got Toby. She managed to bring him over within 5 minutes
We didn't know who took him in at first but word of mouth in the area helped us find them so we could thank them. We got them chocolate, flowers and a card.
Toby is the only dog not wearing a tag (well he has one now!!!) so without getting him scanned for his chip they couldn't get him back to us quickly but they called the warden first thing and she scanned him for it then
Let this just be a reminder to microchip your pets! It is dirt cheap and for the sake of getting your pet home it is worth it!
Oh, he's fine by the way. I wasn't... but he was great. Just very excited to see everybody
