Wellwoof, ma is feelin' real bad about sumptin she didn't do. Help a dog she saw last week. Turns out he is a lost dog. Been lost since Christmas day.
On the way into work ma noticed a big white dog walkin' on a hillside along a fence. He seemed to know where he was goin' and was well away from traffic, so she was not concerned about his immediate safety. There are some houses along this road so she just thought he belonged to one of those homes. But there was a tiny niggle, "Should I go check out that dog that appears to be all alone?". Wellwoof, there was no place handy to stop the car so she kept goin' and let that little niggle disappear. She forgot all about seein' that big white dog.
Earlier this week the radio mentioned Yogi, a big white dog, missin' since Christmas but lost from a different local town from where ma saw the big white dog last week. The radio lady had no details other than 'big white dog'. So it was easy for ma to dismiss it as another dog.
Until today. Now there are missing signs posted with pictures of the big white dog. Dagnabit! Now ma could swear Yogi was the same dog she saw last week!
Just goes to show, peoples, it is better to get involved and not feel regrets later. Maybe ma woulda felt a little foolish at the time if that dog did belong to one of the nearby houses. But that woulda been a whole lot better than how she feels now! She regrets not following the creedo of 'better safe than sorry'! Never again will she look the other way!
Dear Yogi, now we're watchin' for you, buddy! Hopes you get home safely and soon! If we see you again, we'll make sure you do!

Aw, Pepper, my mommy knows just how your mommy feels! She's always wishing she had or hadn't done something or other. It's part of their training. She'll do better next time! We'll pawray that Yogi gets home safely to his fambly!
Thanks, Hershey! Yes, their trainin' is ongoin', isn't it! Thanks fur the pawrayers fur Yogi! He looked pretty happy and healthy last week, hopefurly he'll stay that way until his people find him.
She feels guilty cause your mom is a kind, caring person who actually gives a hoot about another living creature.
Dont feel bad.. your assumptions were made with what seemed totally good reasons. Its always hard to 2nd guess.
Call in the sighting though... even with the time gone.. it will help to set a time and place.
You are a kind generous soul.. some things are meant to be.. some arent... itsa hard to accept that at times.
Pepper, tell your mom to get in touch with the people and let them know exactly where she saw Yogi. You mentioned it was a different town and they might not know he has gone that far. She will feel better helping in that way.
We will be prawying for him.
Woof Woof, Molly
Flicka & Molly are right, call in your sighting. Mommy says that even if nothing comes of it, Yogi's owners will feel glad that at least posting the posters wasn't in vain cause some people actually do stop to read them. Mommy says it's always nice to know that there are others out there that do care.
Yeah, Pepper!! Tell yur Mom tu call, 'kay??? It will help hur feel bedder an' help Yogi's fambly, tu ♥
Thanks, pups! Ma was wonderin' if she should call a week after seeing him. You pups helped make that decision.
And thanks for the kind words. Wasn't meaning to fish for support, but do appreciate it.
I think your momma should call too. It couldn't hurt.
yes call them...I know how you feel, but we all know that Yogi will be found and back home with his family soon!
Yep, you should surely call.
We know how you feel, it often happens that momma sees dogs roaming free when she has all of us pups in the car. Well, sometimes she stops and sometimes she thinks that doggie will just go back home.
We are very resourceful, us pups, and it sounds like this guy is smarter than your average dog BOL. No need to feel guilty!
Yep, I agree! Call. Then maybe the dog's peeps can start searching in your area. And perhaps who knows this dog may yet have a happy New Year. Maybe your mom will be able to spot him again! Then she will know exactly what to do!
