Carolina Girl (Cely)
OMG! We got a call last night from our friend Laura Stanbro.  She had spotted Boo in the neighborhood that he went missing. (Far far away from our home.)  Boo would not come to her and ran.  By the time we got there, it was almost dark and no sign of him yet we continued to call out his name.  One last drive-by on the street he seemed to be seen. We stopped and got out of the car. My son Mitchell spotted a raccoon trap with something in it.......it was BOO!!!!! I had gone in the other direction and when Mitchell hollered that he found him, I started screaming....so much so the neighbors came out of their houses.
The Brock family had spotted Boo several times during the last week with no success of catching him. (We did not know he had been spotted) Anyway, they constantly talked to Laura and made the suggestion yesterday evening to bait the raccoon trap (no harm trap)....nothing to lose....so a can of yummy sardines was the lure.  Within 2 hours Boo took the bait.
I screamed and cried...well....we all did!
I look awful from all the crying but wanted to share the pics. Boo doesn't look anything like his pic after 1.5 weeks on the run.

I want to thank you all for the support, comments on my blog ,your thoughts and most of all...the prayers.

(PS...Boo's microchip never came into play but folks.....get your furry babies microchipped.)
Mitchell and Bonnie, Junior Brock, Me and Boo,Mrs. Brock, Mr. Brock  Much thanks to the Brocks and the thought of using their raccoon trap!

    Saying lots of thank you prayers, Cely! How wonderful to have your furbaby back in the fold. :-D


  12. So happy Boo is home. When one of my dogs was missing, I cried all night long and when he was found and brought back home by two men, I threw myself in their arms and cried like a baby. You should have seen the look on their faces! Pure shock.

    I have been praying constantly and wondering. I haven't seen any postings lately. I happened to come to your blog to see what's happening. I saw this and cried. I am so happy he is home and safe. If only he could tell you what he did and saw. Bottom line he is home and I am so happy for you all. What a relief. Hugs friend.
