    I do live in a relatively quite and (relatively speaking) small city. However, the problem here is that the roads were designed a very long time and are very small and narrow in many places. They were not made to support the amount of traffic that they currently do, so traffic tends to get backed up pretty easily, just because of a traffic light.

    Oh no!!! I hope you find her very soon. :( Put out a food trap for her. That is why you need a leash for your dog whenever you take her out of your home. It also keeps your dog safe and makes sure if she gets spooked, she can't just run off and put herself in danger. I wish you the BEST of luck and I am hoping so MUCH that you find the poor little girl.

    Anyone ever have a disaster with assembling flat pack furniture? I just did a doozy. I spent the day putting together a book case and nailed down the back with about fifty nails. Then I suddenly noticed I had put the sides on the wrong way round so I can't put the shelves in. Now I have to try and get out fifty nails without destroying it . I feel like an idiot !

    Luckily, when I've had problems like that they have been minor enough I didn't need to completely disassemble the piece of furniture. :p

    Where I live, a food trap is much more likely to attract unwanted attention. Bear baiting season has started and judging by the number of vehicles using this little, muddy road, there must be dozens of piles of food placed just to attract bears. If I didn't attract bears, the birds would have it gone pretty quickly. It's very unfortunate that the people whose truck was broken down and stuck have decided to came at the side of the road close to where they were, and where we were when my dog ran off. She's very shy and they also have two large, noisy dogs. I'm not sure whether they're letting those dogs run loose, I certainly hope not. They are too close to my little place for comfort.
    When we're in town, Penny always has a leash on. Out here, she's allowed the run of the yard and has never shown an inclination to leave it. I had made a resolution, though, that we both should get more exercise and this was our first outing/walkies. I never expected her to 1) panic like she did, or 2) run off and not return when called. I suspect that if she hasn't already succumbed to the elements, she soon will. I am heartbroken. Hindsight is always 20/20 and I'm kicking myself hard for all the "could-haves, should-haves". I plan on printing and posting some flyers, just the same.

    Don't! I suggest that all of us have fallen into the trap of complacency when it comes to those do-it-yourself assemblies. They look so easy, and they are, many of us neglect to read the instructions.

    I’m sorry. It’s so hard when you don’t know where they are.

    Sometimes the feral cats I feed will not be seen for three weeks and then they are back like nothing happened.

    Oh no!!! I hope she finds you or the way back home!
    Meanwhile...maybe your two other dogs can find her? Mine found my cat when she ran off during one of our walks. She always went with us..unleashed since she was a cat...but one time something scared her and she ran off across a field, so I waited a bit, then told the dogs to go Find Kitty. They did. Maybe yours can do the same?
