Gone (or lost) but not forgotten

Hi we are back from our holiday, which was great. There has been sad new while we were away, with the death of that wonderful dog Endal. I was so sad to hear of his passing, and so glad that we got to meet him. You can read more about Endal in Beverley Cuddy's blog - but be prepared to cry.

I've been working my way through the hundreds of emails that were waiting in my inbox, and I wanted to share this one with you from Jacob's owners who are desperately searching for him:

Orange & White Bracco Italiano 3 Year Old Male
            Missing from Saffron Walden, Essex CB11 4XB area since
Wednesday 21st January 2009
No longer wearing collar and tags

or maybe you have information about his whereabouts ?

Do you have any information on the whereabouts of this dog?
Call DogLost in the strictest confidence on 0844 800 3220 quoting 16735

For photos of Jacob do check out that blog link. The thought of one of my dogs being missing fills me with dread. To make matters worse it sounds like some incredibly cruel people have been messing Jacob's owners around.

If ever we encounter a lost dog I always stop and do my best to reunite it with its family. I hope that then if ever my dogs are lost some kind soul will do the same for them. I also hope that Jacob is soon home where he belongs.

Take care
