  •  That raises the probability (11+ / 0-)

    of him coming back to you considerably!

    And ten to one he didn't go that far.  Walk the neighborhood if you can, call his name.  Carry cheese.

    •  I can't walk right now (8+ / 0-)

      I have a broken foot and have been pacing the house all morning, so my foot is being iced while I regain some strength and calm my stomach.

      But I am glad he is micro-chipped. I just hope he ends up somewhere where that will count.

      I'm still crossing my fingers that he found some kids and followed them home. He is a sweet, sweet dog and loves kids.

      P.S. I am not a crackpot.

      •  Call friends (5+ / 0-)

        who know the dog and have them do it if they will?  The more time that passes the further away he can get.

        Call neighbors who know your dog and see if they've seen him, have him, know somebody who has him, or are willing to go out and look or at least keep an eye out?

        I'm not sure how realistic any of these suggested actions are, but I'm just throwing out anything I can think of.

        pup #2 for a walk?

        I've never thought about this sort of thing before, but seems like she'd be the most capable finder of pup #1.

        To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

            need you and his sister. he looks like a hunting dog of some sort. they have a good sense of place and will find his way back.

              I don't know, but highly suspect, that someone was trying to train him as a hunting dog before abandoning him upon realizing how timid and gun-shy he is. For the first year I had him, he would run away and tremble whenever I picked up a broom or rake. Sticks still make him nervous, but he's stopped giving me that "please don't kill me" look for the most part.

              He's supposed to be a bird dog but is way too friendly. He'll chase cats, get them cornered, then drop to his belly to play with them.

              The only time he's ever shown any sort of aggression is when he thinks I'm in danger. My brother was scared of him for months because the first time he came to my house unannounced and walked in (as my whole family does with each other), Chachi lunged at him and kept him pinned to the wall until I came in and broke it up. He didn't hurt my bro, but made damn sure that he didn't make a move, and bro didn't, he just stood there sweating until I arrived.

              Now they cuddle whenever bro visits, but he still laughs about how vicious he thought my dog was at first. He's never harmed anyone, but he can look really mean if he wants to.
