Our Puppy is Missing

Our sweet puppy has ran away. Richard went to the camp this weekend with the boys and I went to the beach with my mom to shop, so we left Britney in the yard. I guess it wasn't the best plan because something must have spooked her and she ran away. We have an invisible fence, but if she gets scared enough, she'll run through it. She has done this before, but has never been gone for this long.

I am more upset than I thought I would be. I'm not a real big dog lover, but Britney has been with us for almost 10 years. Braden and Cade have never known life without her, and Bryce doesn't remember it. She even survived our fire with us. She has been super skiddish ever since that trauma, and we want her with us. We have put up almost 20 signs and took out an ad in the paper, just hoping some nice family is keeping her until they find us.

We were driving around looking for her yesterday and hanging signs. When I looked in the backseat, Braden was crying. Well, of course, I start and then Cade starts (Bryce wasn't with us). I told him it was ok to be sad, and it would be really sad if we didn't care she was gone. That would mean she wasn't loved. We're praying for a "Christmas miracle".

I just love how these people who leave mean and nasty comments (above ^^) always choose to be "anonymous". Oh brother. How brave and bold of them.

Anyway, I am so sorry about this. I know you want your puppy back and I will pray for her return. Please let us know the MINUTE you find her!!! (Well, understandably you might want to hug on her for a while first)
