As expected, the snow is heavy and will be steady for several days. So there will be no updates for a while unless she miraculously shows up at someone’s front door (which is what we’re all praying for, of course). I am trying to stay away from the computer and just sleep; I don’t think I’ve gotten more than a few hours a night for a week.
I just wanted to say thank you for the many, many e-mails and comments. I have not been able to reply to everyone and I apologize for that. When my brain is no longer whirling around in semi-panic mode I want to sit down and resond to each of you personally, but right now I just can’t. But please do know that I appreciate each and every word. I cherish the encouragement and the personal experiences and the miracles of so many found dogs in everyone’s lives. I have not even begun to give up hope; we are still in the early stages of this and that’s not even a consideration.
Thank you most of all for realizing that this is important. Thank you for not saying “It’s just a dog.” Thank you for crying with me and for praying with me. Thank you for checking for updates. Thank you for letting me know that I am part of a community of stories, some new and still raw and some old and well-worn. I feel carried on the thoughts and prayers of many, many people, and it keeps me going and keeps me calm and encouraged.
I will be sure to let you all know the instant I have any news.
