I need your prayers

I'm sitting here crying my eyes out. I've spent the last two plus hours scouring the neighborhood for Milo . . . again. In addition to the fact that I've had every spot in the backyard checked for spaces under the fence and had repairs done, and I've had him neutered, and I put clothes on him every time he goes out (except once or twice that I missed) and he's never gotten out with clothes on him ever, somehow tonight he managed to get away.

I even drove on the highway twice. He's wearing his collar (well actually Bailey's collar) and he has on a shiny black raincoat. I'm terrified that with the raincoat nobody will be able to see him and he'll get hurt . . . or worse. I'm beating myself up that I put it on him.

I've checked my voice mail on the phone every five minutes (since I had a problem actually using the phone itself) and nobody's left a message. He's out there alone and I'm scared to death. There was an inordinate amount of traffic tonight. I've never seen it like that on a week night.

Please pray for him that he gets home safely.

Geri----is there anyone you can get to help you search? A neighbor or friend or two? Can you try to look for him at the places he has went before? Maybe you've already tried that....?......If you think he is within hearing distance can you very happily call him(like he is missing out on all the fun)or maybe try a piece of meat with a strong odor? Having it in your hand...I mean? Dogs can smell Geri like crazy...

I've travelled the whole neighborhood over and over again. Everyone I know locally would be asleep already. I'm beyond hysterical.

Do you have any special treats or toys that squeak that he likes or would respond to??

I'm sure he'll be home soon - prayers and positive vibes on the way!!! I'm so sorry.

Can you get your other dogs to go outside and bark? Maybe that would call him home?

Milo! Come baaaaack!

Oh, Geri, he is determined to hobo around, isn't he?! He just has no idea how dangerous it is. I'm so sorry, I can feel how terrified you must be!! I would be, too!! You've been SO proactive in trying everything to curb his wander-lust. I can't do anything but send you a cyber hug, wish I could be joining you in searching, and checking in often to see if you've found him yet.

When Milo gets home Geri---I'd buy that darn lil' bugger a chain! When everyone else goes out to play and you are out,then he gets to be free too,but when you are not right there....he'd be on a chain or cable tie out always.

I know you must be scared.....try not to worry too much.
