For I Was Lost, But Now, I’m Found

Skylerbear with Jacky August 2014

So Mama and I went to visit a long time  friend  of Mama’s in SC.  I love to visit, because she has big wide porches, front and back, and a courtyard,  and we play ball all the time !  One morning, not being used to having a pup in the house, our friend opened a porch door,  not remembering it opened out onto the marsh, and I slipped out. Hey, it was just too tempting…..all those smells?  It took Mama about 5 minutes to realize I was AWOL, and she sprang into action.  I am chipped, but Mama realized the info on my tags was dated.  So she called our peeps back home, and asked them to check our land line.  Then, Mama set out on foot around the marsh, and then in the car, calling and calling my name.  Now Mama is super strong, but this was a setback. Our friend however, did the smart thing.  Her community has a website where you can report lost pets, etc, and it ends an email to everyone’s phone……and our friend sent the word out! Mama was reporting  to the SPCA, etc, and then driving around calling my name for about 30 minutes.  Along the way, she would ask. whomever she saw….have you seen a wee black dog?  And so many peeps said…”We are out looking for him!…we got the email!”  And so it was, that I was found.!  I nosed my way into a porch I thought was mine,  and couldn’t get back out. BUT, a Labradoodle named Oscar (let’s reflect here) and his fellow kitty’s….decided to come out and play with me……JUST SHAKE IT OFF YOU HATERS>>>SHAKE IT OFF!  And so  it was that Mama received word in the car that I was FOUND!  And she and her friend produced a bottle of wine to take to  Oscar’s owner…but let’s get the BIG picture…It was my OSKIE who guided me to Oscar and my happy reunion with Mama who DIRECTLY called LL BEAN and ordered  me one of those collars that has my name and phone number embroidered on it.  And now, Mama Is going to change all my tags to make them current.    Guys, keep your info current….you never know!

    You’re right but the right thing is microchipping. The bird before me flew on to His shoulder (twice) and They tried to find out where this bird belonged, left word at every local vet and put u signs on the Post Office wall (like the found bird was a criminal?). No luck, so the cockatiel was adopted by Them.

      Kismet, how are you feeling? I’m sorry they tried to take away you egg. I have always been chipped. At some point, ?I am going to blog about chipping, tags and collars.

    I was going to ask if you were chipped. You need to be.

    I have always been chipped. What Mama realized is that yes, it was great that I was chipped. First step. However, someone would have to take me to get it read, and the phone number is out of date. So that is why, when we got home, we got tags updated….now will get phone number on chip updated. And she is making notes to get all my info checked every 6 months….including new tags if needed. She felt very helpless, even though I was chipped and had tags. She wanted me found RIGHT AWAY. And in 45 minutes, she got her wish. She feels very blessed. It was all due to that community’s central email. She said it was almost as bad as PawPaw dying…maybe even worse. Drama Queen, I think not.

    wait – did this recently happen? How come I wasn’t informed sooner? (“Mr. Bear! WHY DID YOU OMIT THIS FROM MY MORNING SECURITY BRIEFING????”)

    It happened at the end of May. Maybe Mr Bear was churning out end of the month paperwork? Mama wants GPS to help peeps find their lost dogs. She really likes my new LL Bean collar which has my name and phone number on it.
