Hi I am so heart broken and I know you can understand! On Wed. night my husband & I went away for the night b/c it was his 40th bday. Our friend watched our 2 kids. Anyway~ when we got home the next morning (yesterday) my dog was nowhere to be found!!! We have 2 dogs. Our 2 year old Boston terrier was home but our 12 year old Shih-Tzu named Billy wasn't!!! We went all over the neighborhood, called the shelter and posted signs. No luck!!! Our sitter said he doesn't remember seeing Billy except once after we left that evening. We think Billy ran out when he opened the door to let my son go outside to play. We always let Billy out but he always returns and he barks when he's at the door to come back in. I'm just so sad and there's nothing I can do for now. I was wondering if anyone has any advice as to what else I can do? The weird thing is that 2 years ago out Boston Terrier disappeared too. He was very sick~ 17 and near death. We think he wandered away from home to go pass. I heard that is a common thing for dogs to do. Billy was slowing down b/c he is getting real old but I don't think he was on his last leg. He hates to be alone too.
