My Dog Is Lost - I Feel So Awful!

Recommended Posts

It has been a horrible 28 hours so far - I am told the first 48 are the most critical

I woke up yesterday at 5:00am to my beloved weimerimer having a seizure our hallway, she is only 18 months old, and we've had her since she was only 7 weeks old. My husband and I were watching her come out of it, but my older daughter came out of her bedroom scared and she frightened the dog even more. My dog was so disoriented when she bolted outside, and she didn't even know who we were. I have never seen her run so fast and be so frightened...Our dog has never even been out of our yard. She is so kind, and loving, but afraid of her own shadow. - and followed me everywhere.

We live in a rural area and I have lost dog on the radio, add in the newspaper, drove around handing out flyers with a picture of her, put them up on telephone poles, called the humane society, police, emergency management, our dog catcher, four footed friends, her vet, you name it, I think I have done it. Not a soul has seen her. I am exhausted, and so very, very sad. I even prayed to St Anthony, the saint of lost things....

Our other dog died last year, he was a beautiful American Eskimo dog named Meeko.....he died from kidney failure - only ate dogfood, no table scraps - I was told the dogfood was contaminated - He was just 7 years old. I am not sure I can take this. My head feels like it is going to explode.

I miss my Weimerimer - her name is Emma

Emma,

I am so sorry to hear about your puppy. One of my best friends and his wife have two weimerimers, and I love hearing about them. They are really sweet dogs and so beautiful.

It sounds like you've done everything you need to do to bring your dog home. I don't really have anything else to suggest.

Please keep all of us posted. I'll call my friend to see if he has any suggestions since he's had weimerimers for years.

Continue to have hope that Emma will come home. Dogs are smart and they know where their comfort is.

I will help in calling Emma home..

Thanks for the kind words -

that would be great to see if your friend has any suggestions - I loved to watch her point at birds when I took her outside..

.this is just so awful, I don't know what to do.

My dog's name is Emma... my little girl named her..we got her for her birthday.

I will keep you posted.

oh gosh- more prayers for you and Emma (my favorite name btw). My BIL'S border collie has seizures but she hasn't bolted. When she comes out of them, she's very confused.

hugs :wub: :wub: :wub: and prayers calling Emma home!

My girls (dogs) and I are just aching for you, and will say a prayer for Emma's safe return. :( Just keep looking......I"ll tell you a story...

I had the most wondrous cat in the whole world - - a tortoiseshell point Himalayan named Cookie ("Miss Cooks")......she had lived at one home, my childhood home, her entire life. When she was 12, I moved about two miles away, into a little guest house, and didn't take her with me at first. But soon thereafter I brought her there to live with me, and after a day of her PACING and driving me insane, I let her out. Searched and searched...found her soon and took her back to her home. My dad had died, and my mom was living between two places, and so often, no one was at the house.

Well....I couldn't stand it. I brought her back again. Same thing......I let her out....and I wasn't as careful this time, I don't know why. She was gone. Days went by....a week....and then two weeks. I roamed the neighborhood, sobbing......put out hundreds of flyers.....knocked on doors....my heart had literally been ripped from me....I know exactly h ow you feel.

Exactly two weeks later, my mom called, she'd been at home for a couple of days....and said.....you won't believe who's here. :rolleyes: The Cookstress had taken two weeks to get there......she was skinny, skittish, scared.......but I got her back. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

I moved her in wtih me again, under STRICT supervision, and I had two more beloved years with her, until she died of liver failuer at age 14.

And then I switched to dogs.......dingos, that is. ;) And the rest is history.

I am hoping against hope you'll have a miracle story as I did. Pray HARD.

Sending love.

It was another pretty tuff day without Emma. I drove around most of the day talking to people and handing out and showing her picture to anyone that would look. I even stopped the UPS man, the township guys that ride around all day, and the postman and gave him a flyer to take back to the plant. No luck. It seems as if she left the face of the earth. I did have a false alarm, someone called thought I had lost a chocolate lab.

I hung out the clothes I was wearing today, hoping she might catch the scent. She used to take a shoe of mine or my hubbies to lay with when she napped. She is attached to us as much as were are attached to her.

I also sent any shelters an email with the Emma flyer that I made up on an attachment, still hoping + praying, that is all I can do. My heart is so heavy. I even feel as if I was glutened with my head, but I know that is stress...plus I am not eating, or sleeping very good right now either.

This may seem a bit far fetched, but have you tried the local news station? Maybe the local news station would air a small story about your lost dog on the evening news. Not be to calous but a lost dog that ran away after a seizure, that pulls at heart strings which is what the news wants. Maybe they could help???

Thoughts are with you and Emma

I'm so sorry you haven't found her yet. My pomeranian had a grand mal seizure yesterday followed by a petit mal seizure. That was one of the scariest things I've gone thru! My vet said it's very odd but there have been a lot of dogs having seizures in the last week, said he's never seen anything like this.

He told me that the dog will calm down after the seizure episodes are over and that if my dog should get away, that when he has re-oriented himself, that he'd be looking for home. Vet also said they prefer dark, quiet places when they are in this condition. You might want to check people's garages, sheds, under trees and brush, under porches, etc. that your baby could have taken refuge in.

Most definitely talk to all your neighbors so they can check their property and help out.

I am sp exhausted....

Still no sightings of Emma yet, I am staying positive though. I spent most of the day puttng up flyers, and talking to people. Most schools are out, more kids...maybe she will come out for them, she loves kids, and playing, so new hope. I will be back at it again tomorrow.

While I was putting up the last poster tonight, I slipped on some gravel and feel to the ground...you should have seen, I did recover quite well, but my tape and flyer flew into the air! My knee is a bit scraped up but I was waiting for someone to yell - SAFE

I will try the local news tomorrow, not sure what they will do. I have a lady trying to get a search team out to walk some of the woods here. I think that would be great!! The only reason they are concidering it is because she has seizures.

One more thing to do...I am putting outside the shirt I wore today, hoping she will pick up the scent.

THanks for all the kind thoughts and prayers, we are needing them.

DOG IS FOUND - June 12 - 8:15 pm

Oh my - while we were eating dinner tonight we were saying how our Emma would really love to have some scraps - then the phone rang - We were told they had our dog - the collars matched and she was a weimaraner!!!

Emma had gone onto someones side porch - ate the cat food - then curled up next to their door! She was about 2 miles from the house.

She is exhausted - very thin - and her pads are worn and torn - But she is HOME!!

I have been so sad and depressed without her. While I was so ill, she was my constant compainion!

I feel so lucky to have another day with this wonderful dog!

THANK-YOU ALL for the kind words, and prayers!

I have been following this thread since you lost your dog. I am so happy she is now home where she belongs. Our pets are part of our family and to lose one would be so heartbreaking. We only have one pet, a small toy poodle, but she is loved so much. I don't worry about her getting lose as we have a small gated back yard. But, I do worry about an owl or a hawk taking her away, as we live in Arizona. I get a crink in my neck from looking up when she is in the yard.

I bet she is also happy to be back home and loves all of the loving and attention.

Happy Happy Happy to hear you found your Emma. My boy Jake died last Friday, 2 days after his 8th Birthday. It was awful. I think not knowing would be worse in a way, so I glad you found her and your prayers were answered. My dog had Myasthenia Gravis and had lived 2 years past his diagnoses with lots of medications and even more LOVE. He died in the emergency Vet Clinic after we got back from a vacation at the Outer Banks in NC. At least he got to see the ocean and beach one more time. I think he relapsed, though, because of too much exertion and I feel really guilty about it. I am having a tough time so when I saw your post I went right to it...such a dog lover, anything with Dog gets my attention. I'm very happy for your good ending.
