Still missing Oscar...

Well it's now Wednesday and Oscar has been missing nearly four days. I think I have done pretty much everything I can, short of scouring the land for him in person. It's really strange - he just seems to have vanished. No-one has seen him so far. I'm having a letter and photo (the dog, not me) published in the Leamington Courier on Friday, and hopefully that will turn something up. A few people have suggested someone may have taken him in, which is what I am hoping really. I called Railtrack today too, just to check no dogs have been killed on the line near where we live. No news is good news from them....

It's just such a shame as he is such a lovely dog - so placid and gentle, especially with the kids. And I feel so guilty, because ultimately, it's my fault he is lost as I let him slip out.

An anonymous woman called both Petsearch and the Dog Warden and left messages over the weekend saying she had found a dog. But she didn't leave a name or number and hasn't called since. It is driving me crazy. I don't even know if if was Oscar that she found, but the timings fit. I can't help feeling that if there had been an out of hours service, I might have my dog back...

This is not a good week.

I came over from Belle's blog - I'm a Leamingtonian, and I'll keep an eye out for Oscar. I hope you find him soon.

bad luck. Dogs are very special. I can guess how you feel.

Oh gosh, I'm so sorry. I'd be frantic if it were one of mine!

I hope you find him. Have you checked all the local vets?

Lola - thanks so much, and if you could spread the word in Leam I would be very grateful..

Ernest - I completely blame myself, and just hope he's sitting in front of a roaring fire eating chicken off a silver platter.

Jay - Thanks for your support - I have started to get the word out in the area. Oscar is micro-chipped so if he comes in to a vet I should hear.
