The groomer lost him!!
I just got back from searching for 2 hours for Cooper.
We took him this morning to a new groomer. She was out in a little town next to ours. Very much "the country". I've heard great things about her for over a yr, and had exhausted every other option around. She does just a few dogs on the weekends, out at her house.
We took him at 8:00, and planned to get him after soccer..around 12:00. Because I was at a game, and my phone was in my pocket I didn't get her TEN calls. When we got in the car, I saw I had all these missed calls and frantic voice mails. I guess she decided because it was a nice day to do her grooming out on her deck. She took Cooper and two other dogs out, and went back for her supplies. She didn't notice her husband had left the gate to their closed off deck open. Or something like that. Least, that's the story I got. He was 1 of 3 dogs there today and she thought she'd let the two not being groomed play while she was working on the other. (she asked me ahead a time, and I thought it sounded like a great idea).
Well, Cooper and a shih tzu bolted. She said her dh, daughter and a friend looked for about 20 mins before calling me. They found the shih tzu with in minutes. But, no sign of Cooper.
He's NEVER been in an environment like that before. If he took off into the woods, which they think he did. It's acres and acres in all directions before he'd run into people.
He has no tags, because she'd taken his collar off. He has a micro-chip, but that means nothing. Hick town, doesn't even have a animal shelter. Our town is the next one over, and our police station picks up strays and puts them ALL in one kennel. They don't have a scanner. Of course, I know all the cops so I've already talked to them and notified them if anyone calls..to of course let me know.
I can't believe this.
Tritia, Daisy, Cooper, and Bodie.
