Farm dogs.

Lilo and Stitch.

The other day the creek flooded. Really bad.
Neighbors said they haven't seen it this high in over 13 years.
But that didn't stop Lilo from having fun!

She immediately ran into it, jumping, playing, splashing...

You know who didn't go in the water?
Stitch. He's such a priss. Completely pampered and spoiled.
He ran off this morning. I'm trying not to cry as I blog this in the middle of the night, but he still hasn't come home yet.
Will you pray that he does? I love him. And I miss him already.
We've had him for about 5 or 6 years.
He's not the prettiest dog I've ever seen, but he sure is sweet.

But Lilo had a great time. Muddy and messy.
She didn't care.

All this time we've had her in town, on well kept grass, in a privacy fence.
And all this time she was meant to be a farm dog.


We love our sponsors!

Oh honey! He doesn't have his bearings enough to know where home is yet! From me (dog trainer, and i train tracking dogs too) It takes them at least 6 weeks to get figure out "home". Was he near the house when he ran off? He probably got to sniffing something and followed it (though Boston's don't have the greatest nose!) He probably went off sniffing something and got all turned around and is now lost. I would go visit all the neighbors and make sure they know about him. He's probably found one of their houses. BE GLAD he didn't like the water. Bostons are AWFUL swimmers and if he found a spot with more current he would have a hard time with it. First thing in the morning, go to the neighbors!

Dear Beki:
I can't imagine having to go to bed at night without all our beloved pets being safe with us. I'll pray that your sweet guy finds his way back to you today. Please keep us posted.

Beki, so very sorry about Stitch. Don't give up searching...my little shih tzu was gone for a week. We put flyers up everywhere, visited all the vet's offices and put up his photo. Finally, when I had pretty much given up hope, the phone rang and someone had seen the flyer at a convenience store down the road. My Dusty was safely being cared for about a mile from our house as the crow flies. He had trampled through the woods until he found people. The scary part of all that was he had terrible seizures and was without his medication for a week.
Call your neighbors, if there are any little farm stores or convenience stores close by, ask if you can post his pic and contact the local vets.
Hope he comes home before you have to do any of that. :(

i'll pray for your pup big time! i'm thinking he'll be home soon :) you can see the joy from lilo's lil' face in all those shots...great! let us know when stich is home...k? xo

LeAnna said...

Aw, hope your sweet pup finds his way back home! Dogs are smarter than we give them credit for. Just think, Homeward Bound. ;) There's always hope!

I had a question about your jewelry, and I can't find an e-mail anywhere to contact you. I was curious if you ever do any "custom" type pieces. I'm wanting to get started on my Christmas shopping (seeing how I'm going to have a newborn when normal people start theres!) and I'm wanting to do a memorial type piece for my brother in-law, to give to my MIL. But I don't know what I'm doing, what I want, etc. Was just curious if you had any ideas on one of your pieces that would work for that. Or if you're even interested, etc.

My e-mail is on my profile if you get some time, if not it's okay, I know you're busy!

awwwwww i pray stitch comes home soon! i'm sure he's just off exploring and contemplating his new identity as a country dog ;)

lilo= so fun!!! i would've wanted to play in the water too if it was remotely as hot up there as it's been here in alabama!

It looks like he had tags on. When our dog ran away she was only a block away. Some lady had kept her for the night and then took her to Caring Hands in Newton. I agree- alert the neighbors and then check in with Caring Hands. Hoping he comes home soon.

Gloria said...

I truely feel for you and pray that your little one comes home soon. Alert everyone in your area and country stores are often the best alternative to posting pics so someone can contact you if they found him for you. Lilo looks like she has found her new joy, such a happy dog! Smile today. :)

Sara said...

poor puppy!
please keep us updated, ok?

(and thanks for coming by my blog...a photo compliment from YOU makes my day! I really appreciate it!)

Susan R said...

I'm praying your little guy finds his way back home soon. He will have had a great adventure of his own.
On a happier note, geez...it looks like swampland and puppy looks like the happiest of dogs. Love your photos.
Good luck.

Oh Beki! I'm so sad that Stitch is missing! I'm hoping you've found him by now, or will soon. Having a missing furbaby is so upsetting! Been saying some prayers for him. Hugs to you and the fam.

Unknown said...

Aww....I'm praying for Stitch. I'm hoping he will ocme home soon, very tired, but VERY glad to see you all.
As for Lilo.....that pup is a hoot. What a fun time that puppy had in the water. :)

Melinda said...

Hoping that Stitch comes home soon!
Love the expression on "farm dogs"
face in the last pic!!!

Good Luck.

Oh I pray Stitch comes home soon! Check everywhere even put up signs at local vets offices. I had a Jack Russel who ran away & never came home. He has a micro-chip but the fine line with that is, if a person goes into a vet office saying they found the dog then they check for the chip. A person goes in saying they "got" a new dog the vet will NEVER check for a chip. This is what we think happened to our dog.
Lilo looks like she had a FABULOUS time in the water. I love hound dogs.
Good luck & I hope you find Stitch real soon.
