This is causing me a lot of stress. My PUPPY JOEY (JO-JO) is missing. He was out playing with our other fur babies, but have not seen him since yesterday morning. I miss him so much, and he must be hungry. Please say a prayer for him to return.

Hi Susan

I can fully understand how worried and stressed you must be about this. I hope he comes home really soon. Are there numbers you can phone in case he was picked up anywhere?

Take care - Scottie

Susan, Hope that your puppy shows up soon. Has anyone gone out looking for him yet? Sometimes a neighbor will end up seeing them and feed them and wait for someone to come looking. Irish ;D

JOEY is spending the night at the vets. My husband ask our trash pickup person this morning if they had seen a dog out roaming anywhere. She said, "is he light brown?" husband says, yes. She said that she passed a dog like that huddled by a church, and it looked hurt, like it had been hit by a car. My husband rushed over there, and it was JOEY. He looked pitiful. My husband got him to the vet. They put an IV in him, gave him something for pain,  and x-rays. They said he was trying to go into shock, but with all they are giving him, and NO broken bones, he will be very sore, but will be ok.

THANKS FROM US AND JOEY, FOR ALL YOUR PRAYERS

Wow Susan, what a relief. Thank goodness he wil be okay. I know how frantic you must have been. Our Pixie (kitty) was missing for three days and we were a wreck. She has a chip but in this case it didn't help. We live in the woods and are surrounded by woods, no homes nearby. The poor baby was lost in the woods for three days, with coyotes, foxes etc. We think it is a miracle that we got her back. Never again will she be allowed outside. She doesn't like it but too bad.

So glad your Joey is safe.  :)

Susan~~I am so happy that he was found and is okay!!  He will be getting lots of hugs and kisses from all of you I am sure.  What an ordeal for all of you.

I live in the woods also Quiger and have had my kitty missing for days in the past.  He allways returned~~~One time looking like he did not have a good trip.  How many tears have i shed~~~maybe that is where they all went!

Take care all~~Shari

Oh Shari, I know that feeling. I cried for three days. We do love our animal companions, such close family members.  :)

Quiger~~~I have cute little finches indoor and one flew the coop one day when I was changing water etc.  Well, I had the front door open and out she flew leaving her family behind.

I sat on the front stoop for three days just bawling my eyes out.  Part of that was worry for what she would go through outdoor where the elements would not be kind.  It was awful.

Just the other day I was opening the door to feed them (I had sinced found a new companion for the male)  and one flew out!  It ended up being a new baby!!!!  I was able to get "it" back with the others and now will wait for it to mature and find out if it's a boy or girl.  ~~Shari~~

Hi Susan,

What could have been such a tragic story turns out not so bad after all (so thankful) and that is a red letter day in my book every day and twice on Sunday too!!!!!  Okay, now I can stop and breath for a minute!  Whew, I get excited hearing about a sad animal buddy story with a good ending!

I'm so thankful that he's not seriously hurt and hope that he will be home shortly!  When he does come home, please give him a couple of scratches behind the ear for me.

Guys when JOEY gets home, I will give him the hugs and scratches behind the ears. ;)  I miss him.  :( The vet said he felt it is in JOEY'S best interest to keep him through the weekend in a controlled environment. He is still not able to stand much on his back legs. He had still not ate on his own, and he went pee pee, but not the other. They want him to have more rest. When he comes home we will need to keep him on antibiotics, and some pain meds. They think he was hit more around his back area. When he gets home, he is going to be pampered.  :)
