    UPDATE HE'S HOME: Jakey has gone missing.

    Thank you all so much. Right after posting here, I ate and headed back out. Searched the last trail I’d found until it was 100% certain was neighbor’s hunting dog, not Jake. They’ve been shooting this morning, I found several piles of feathers.

    I came back and checked — 1 call ( think from animal control). I returned the call & left a message. Heard a commotion across the street — it was my neighbor talking to woman pulled into his driveway. She saw Jake 1 mailbox up the street about an hour earlier. I headed up the street and found intermittent tracks in the sand by side of road. I walked a mile up calling for him. The tracks had long stopped re-appearing, so I headed back up the other side looking for any tracks. Kept calling for him.

    And then I heard him bark and started running up the street. I saw a neighbor 2 houses from mine walking down his driveway. When he saw me he asked if I was missing a dog. Jake had walked up his driveway right around noontime — when I was calling the police and the shelter, and probably right after the woman saw him across the street.

    He is so grounded. I’m so tired, and so fucking relieved. He’s never been missing more than a few minutes. 4 hours was 4 hour too many…



    I’ve been searching for 2 hours now. He disappeared while I was trying to clear the back door of the barn. He had no more than 5 minutes head start…thought he’d headed up to the house, which was where I found Luna.

    I’ve driven up and down the road in both directions. I’ve followed all the dog tracks to their end in the woods behind my pasture, except one set that I found by chance. They don’t look big enough or new enough, but they’re the last tracks left and head in the direction of the neighbors who have tried to kill him in the past.

    I stopped following them and came back to change to dry clothes, eat something…anything. Have called police & animal control.

    fuck i’m scared. if he goes down in the snow — most places are not too deep anymore, but I did drop down to 2 feet at a couple spots — he won’t be able to get back up. there’s hundreds, maybe thousands of acres of woods back there.

    11. OMG….thank goodness!

    The cat disappeared last evening for a bit…and I was worried.  My pets are my 4-legged children and I worry about them just as much as if they were 2-legged humans.  Cat found a way out of the backyard is back and is presently confined in the extra bedroom until the gardener gets here this afternoon and plugs up the hole in the fence!
