    Unhappy I thought he was gone !!

    I've just spent the last hour running around and driving around our neighbourhood looking for Mojo. My daughter and i decided to take the goofs for a walk. I take Bronx because he still pulls like a frieght train. Emily and Mojo left about a minute before Bronx and i.

    We caught up to Emily just around the first corner and she balling her eyes out holding a lead conected to a collar....and i just catch a glimpse of Mojos tail running through the golf course !!!!

    Bronx and i took off ....positive he'd be just behind the small sloping hill on the golf green.

    We get there to see.........absoloutely nothing but green grass !!!! Now i'm bolting around panicking. 30 odd minutes later and till no sign of my boof headed baby.

    So i run home to get my ute and ditch Bronx...driving around everywhere and still no sign of Mojo. Now i'm really stressing.....no dog, its getting dark, he has no road sense and no collar with rego tag !!!!

    I'm starting to think of drawing up 'missing dog' signs....taking tomorrow off work to continue the search.....finding him hit by a car....someone finding him and keeping him for themselves......all nightmare scenarios !!!

    Then my wifes car drives towards me ande flahes its lights...she was at work when this started and i hadnt told her yet.

    She pulls up and says...."He's at home ".........the words i needed to hear rang in my ears.....i just sighed and drove home.

    The wanker had dordled his way home through everyones backyards no doubt sniffing and pissing on everything along his merry way. He was standing in the kitchen and ran to me a i got in the door. I wanted to throttle him for running from us but all i could manage was a huge big cuddle.
    Hes standing here now wagging his tail totally unaware that he just aged me a good 10 years in a hour. The collar is adjusted now and Emily wont be walking Mojo by herself for a long long time.

    I wouldnt wish this sort of thing on my worst enemy...Thank dog it ended well.

    I'll sleep well tonight.

    I really hope that you have appropriate medicine to take for returning your stress levels to a manageable level ! smiley-eatdrink004.gif

    I would be freaking out if one of my dogs did that. Thank god they both listen well. Well panda literally never leaves my side. even off leash. But merlin has to run atleast 200 metres in front of me before he stops and looks to see why i'm not also running lol. He's like COME ON HURRY UP THERES THINGS TO SMELL AND SEE!. Then when i finally get there i see him laying in a puddle of mud.

    And then panda thinks thats awesome that her big brother is doing it so she gets in the mud too.
    No one loves you like your dog does.

    Thanks guys...the joys of pet ownership hey.

    Mojo walks great on a lead but once hes free, well he' off exploring everything following his nose. If Bronx is let off lead and he gets more than 5 metres away he's like "OMG dad i thought i lost you " and comes running back. He's so clingy....i have no isue with Bronx ever running away.LOL.

    Riley...i had a nice stiff drink with dinner and all is forgiven now !!

    I feel for you Sean.
    I went through the same thing about a year and a half ago. My then 12 year old dog went missing for a day and a half. Thunderstorms freaked her out while i was at work during the day and she got out and i came home to an empty house.

    Like Mojo she has no road sense, and with log trucks ripping up my road at 100k's an hour i was a mess thinking about her.

    You just can't stop your mind thinking of every bad possibility.
    I didn't sleep at all that night and sure as hell wasn't going to work the next day.
    Luckily for me,and her, she wandered into some peoples home to check out there goats.
    This was about 7k's away from my place.
    I must admit she was the quickest she'd ever been getting into my car when i got there.
    i reckon i spent the next week hugging her,i was so glad to have her back. Worst experience of my life.
    Soo glad Mojo is safe and sound back home. A stiff drink would definitely be in order,or two,or three.

    OMG..tkandz.....a day and a half !!! I'd be so stressed. I can imagine not been able to sleep at all. And 7 K's away !!! So so lucky that nothing happened to the dear old girl.
    Its funny how the mind works hey....i asked a builder on a new house site if he'd seen him and even though he said no i still looked into his vehicle just in case he had decided that he want a Bullmastiff for himself !! lol... i was suss on everyone !!!

    Frosty never lets me out of her sight. Unfortunately - she can see about 1.5km... well she thinks that's all good... but I don't.

    I do use it to my advantage from time to time, I hide...
