I`m writing here as Smiley`s Dad. This seems to be the year of the Alaska trip that was destined not to be. First were the car problems,then yesterday, Smiley became lost as he took off in pursuit of some animal or other. This happened at a campground at Johnson Lake on the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska. I had stopped here for lunch on our way to visit the scenic town of Homer in Cook Inlet. Smiley caught the scent of some animal and took off along a lakeside trail. He soon disappeaared into the bushes and was ought of sight. I searched for several hours for him repeatedly calling his name and even spent the night at the campground hoping that he would follow his scent trail back there. He was still missing as of this morning, and today`s searching produced only one individual on a nearby homestead who had briefly seen him yesterday. He is an older dog with arthritus and is not getting his meds while he is lost. Also there are moose in the area. Please keep him in your prayers as I desprately hope for his safe return. Tonite will be his second night lost in the wilds of Alaska. He does have tags on,so there is still some hope for his return.
