If you are familiar with this blog you may remember the story I put up a couple of weeks ago about "Sir" and a black dog named Boo Boo. Two days after I posted that story Boo Boo went missing with his sister Yogi.
It was on a Sunday almost two weeks ago that Boo Boo and Yogi visited us, got treats, played for a while then ran on home. We went the whole week without one glimpse of Boo Boo and his bag of new treats is still unopened waiting for him to return. A visit to our neighbor (where Boo Boo and Yogi actually belong) was a waste of time for "Sir". The response from the owner was that they were fine and had probably just run off to the community around the corner. Huh? They had already been gone a week.
I guess this type of ownership for some animal owners is exceptable and maybe they think they are good dog lovers simply because they feed their pets. I have my own thoughts on that.
A nice conversation with Animal Control in my area today (concerned that the pair had been locked up by them) really gave me some insight on what's going on with Boo Boo and Yogi. I did however, express my concern about the dogs being allowed to run free because I was sure the animals had NOT had the required shots. After I explained the situation and assured her that we wanted to help Boo Boo she told me that Boo Boo probably has "that scent" up his nose! We had a good chuckle about that!
So now it has finally dawned on me that Boo Boo has gone to find a girl friend and with his sister Yogi beside him she's looking for a "guy" dog. So, I guess it will be a long time before they come home. If they ever do.
This Sunday it will be two weeks since "Sir" and Boo Boo were together and "Sir" truly misses him and wants him back so Boo Boo can get his medical attention and join our family and be warm, dry, fed, well loved and spoiled.
If you live in the Sanford, Virginia area, or know anyone who does, and have seen Boo Boo PLEASE leave a message here. We have driven every road back over and over. My one fear is that with trappers on the water and water nearby these puppies have gotten hungry and have been caught in a trap.
If you are in this area keep your eyes open for this pair. Boo Boo and Yogi both need to come home. Boo Boo will be coming here!Please keep in mind if you think you see them they are now a year old. They both will answer to their names. Especially Boo Boo.
