Here again, Gone again, Dunnegan

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

We got a new dog on Tuesday evening.  His name is Strider (formerly Rambler), and he’s a Great Pyrenees.

This is *not* him, but you get the idea.

So, he was with us for about two hours, and then I went out to check on him and he was gone.  We had him tied up, but he slipped his collar, hopped the fence and headed on down the road.  We drove around looking for him but didn’t have any luck.  Wednesday, Allena put up signs at the local grocery store, feed stores, and vet’s office.  We drove around some more but still didn’t see him.

Tonight, we got a call from a man that saw one of our signs – Strider was at his place in Dunnegan.  I clocked the drive over, and it was about six miles away.  Strider is back home now, and he’s in a more secure place (the garage).  We originally put him in our stock trailer, but he managed to climb/jump out of that, and it has at least a five foot tall wall.  That’s kind of discouraging, because it means we don’t have a fence on the place that will contain him.  Hopefully after a week or two, he’ll decide this is where he belongs and stick around.
