I KNOW you all need the story, and I have not been able to tell it because of very limited Internet and we need the phone every second. The very short story is that the house is worse than originally thought and we are homeless for the next few months (not homeless-homeless; we’re going to be staying with friends, but the house and about 90% of contents are going to be declared totalled).
I need every good thought and prayer you’ve got. Doug just got a call from the kennel where the dogs are being boarded. Clue got out at 6:30 am, she was hit by a car, and she ran. Nobody can find her. They’ve been searching for hours.
That is ALL I know. Those three sentences. Don’t know how it happened, why, how severe the hit looked to be, anything. They were/are at a VERY good kennel so the circumstances are a total mystery.
We are going up there as soon as someone arrives to take care of the kids. Our hotel is about 1.5 hours from the kennel and it’s going to be dark in less than four hours. It’s below freezing already, will be in the low 20s tonight, and it’s going to snow. I’m trying not to panic but none of this is good.
I am using every suggestion that people gave for Jessie (the lost Cardi from last week). I am bringing the PJs I wore last night and we’ll leave them in a crate.
Clue is VERY smart and she’s not a panicky dog; she’s a “party Cardi.” She will come to people, and she would go back to the kennel; it would be very unlike her to bolt and not come back. So the fact that she hasn’t is making me very worried.
I will try to update tonight. Right now we know so little that I don’t think we need help or more people. I need to get up there and see what’s going on and try to find her before I will know our needs. So for now, just pray.
