*Sigh :sad:

I recently joined here to get help on our Puppy.. After our dog Duke went missing.. on Aug 16th.

After plastering posters/Calls to vets/pounds everywhere..since then I hadnt givin up

Until today, We own 3 ATV's & this am my hubby went into the trails near by on one to blow off steam.

Came across what he was sure was Duke.. (although pretty decomposed) his tags/collar were on his neck.

Was is his time???? My hubby went back with a shovel to give him a burial.

I am heartbroken, he was only 8 :sad::sad::sad: & we had checked all throu the trails when we found he was missing. But he was found far in near a stream. (we never go that far in.. as with all the rain you would get really stuck)

Something told my hubby to go there..


RIP Duke

So sorry. It's never easy.:sad:
Take comfort that you have closure of his whereabouts. You would always wonder where he was otherwise.
