I am so sorry to hear this has happened. Yes, please let us know how it turns out as we will all be thinking and praying for her safe return.

My daughters dog ran out on her right before vacation as well. I found a site on the net that does an Amber alert kind of thing for dogs. I paid for it to call 500 of her neighbors. I know it went out as my father and a friend live close enough to get the alert. You could put your parents number. The site was lostmydoggie. I signed up for the free plan and received a code for $20 off a while later. I hope you find your pup soon. That is just awful.

She just took off and no one saw which way she went. She's gotten out once before and got hit by a car. I'm sure that it will happen again if she makes it out to the main road.

I have no idea what to do. I'm so upset. We're going to two 5-day B2B cruises, and there is no possible way that I'm going to enjoy myself with her missing. I'm at a complete loss.
I don't know you but my heart breaks for you. What a horrible way to start your vacation. The bright side is that your parents will be at your house and there to serve as her welcome committee when she comes home. Also, I'm sure they know how much she means to you and will do everything in their power to continue the search if she doesn't make it home on her own for some reason.

I'm not going to tell you to try to enjoy your cruise because I know that, if I were in your position I would be completely miserable. But I will suggest you try to focus on the way your Husky makes you laugh and smile each day and hope that offers you something to look forward to once you're back home.

Sending many hugs your way for the best outcome for you and your pup.

So sorry to hear this and hope things turn out well. At least your parents are there to wait for your dog to come home.

Right before our B2B Fantasy cruises last spring our house was broken into and our 21 year old African Grey Parrot was stolen and one of our dogs was stabbed 2 times in the chest (with one of my steak knives they were in the process of stealing). We ended up having to cancel but our circumstances were different.

Praying that she returns home safely before you leave, so that you can enjoy your vacation!

The dog I had growing up used to run away all the time, he would just blast through the door if we opened it even a crack. He always returned though. Liked to run around and get stinky in the park beside our house. Keep the faith!

Keep us updated, I will be sending good vibes your way

My thoughts exactly! Its great that your parents are there in case someone calls or to keep looking for her. I am so sorry- our lab is a runner too and I know the panick you are feeling. Best wishes!

I have tears in my eyes as I read this. We were on the Wonder when we got a ship-to-shore phone call (NEVER a good thing, I'm convinced). It was ours friends who were watching our dog (read: baby). I was numb. Helpless. He was found by a VERY sweet family who took him in and took care of him until we got their message off of our home voicemail and connected our friend's with them. May your little four-legged love be returned to your family very soon. And then make sure to put a tag on him that has your parents' cell number on it... just in case.

Sending good thoughts to you, your family, and your pup,
Dreams

Oh, I am so sorry! My thoughts are with you and your husky. I've got 2 of my own, and know how they love to run. Sending you and your husky lots of pixie dust.
