    please keep us posted...with good news

    AE. The sightings sound promising for a safe return of your dog. I hope to hear good news from you with a happy ending.

    According to Mr. AE's cousin, who spends weekends at our house, our dogs [and those of others, from what I'm told] were acting nervous and abnormally leading up to Irma. We have a female rottie and a male viralata on our property. Mr. AE spoke to the caretaker, and told him to take the dogs and put them inside before the rains started, but he waited too long. Our rottie, who never goes far from the house, disappeared. The poor girl is about 9 years old and half blind.

    Everyone knows we're looking for her, and we've offered a reward for her safe return, but so far there is silence. Someone thinks they saw her near a little bridge down the road a few miles. I'm sick about this, she must be tired and hungry and totally confused. I hate the "not knowing", and every day that passes means it's less likely she'll find her way home.
    Sorry to hear this. Hope she is found soon.

    AE....I hope you get her back safe and sound soon ......the not knowing part has to be the worst ...but the fact she has been spotted a few times is a good sign

    Got home late last night [Mr. AE in hospital, and I'd taken his phone home to charge and then forgot it there], I checked his phone and saw he had a WhatsApp message & photo from the Agrovet. Opened it and was overjoyed to see a pic of our Rosita, tied up on a chain, he had her! At first I was skeptical - I mean, all rotties look pretty much the same - but when I zoomed in I could see her left eye had white crusty stuff, which she's being treated for, so I knew it was our old girl. A flurry of phone calls to DR, and our cousin is picking her up this morning, paying the reward, and taking her home to our house. It was the only happy moment of the past 36 hours or so.

    Thank you all for your supportive comments, pleased to report a happy ending.

    I'm sad to report that it was not Rosita, despite the same eye problem. Cousin got there and said dog was younger, was swollen with milk, so there are pups nearby, assuming they survived the rains. She's a stray, but not our stray. 

    The search goes on.
