Still no news about Danny

Yesterday was a very weepy day for me. Danny still hasn't come back home or been found. Colin, my husband, visited the RSPCA, the police station and made enquiries about the dog pound. He was given a phone number for a rescue centre in Gelligaer, where the stray dogs from this area are taken. We rang twice yesterday and also today, but so far, he hasn't shown up.

The local farmer has been informed and the country ranger. So we are doing all we can. It's awful without him. It got me thinking to how the bereaved feel when a loved one has died. I can quite relate to addressing him and realising he is no longer here, and to constantly looking for him around the house. I just keep hoping when I wake up in the morning, he will be sitting outside the front door as if nothing has happened. If he shows up, he is going to have the longest hug ever and the biggest meal he has had in his life!

My daughter made up a poster:

Missing

Danny went missing in the vicinity of Gethin Woods [near the bridge at the rear of Anthony Grove], at around 11.00 p.m. on Friday 1st of June 2007.

Danny is 15 months old and very friendly. He is quite slim, short haired and his coat is mainly black. He has very distinctive ears - his left ear points upwards and his right ear is floppy.

There is a £100.00 reward for Danny's safe return.

Hi Lynette,

Sorry to read that your dog has gone missing!

Some animals become part of your family, so it is most distressing if they go missing or anything happens to them.

Hope Danny has returned the time you are reading this.

Cheers
Ed

Thanks for your thoughts, Ed. Unfortunately, there is still no sign of him.

I feel particularly bonded to him as I was there when he was born [his mother is one of our other dogs],so I have had a lot to do with his upbringing. I feel like his second mother.
