Thinking they may not have run far last night and might still be hanging around the church grounds, I went back very early this morning and took Diamond with me. She's their mom/grandma and was the one who ran off with them but came back hours later. There was no sign of them, but Di and I walked as much of the grounds as I could. I called for them even though I know that isn't going to mean anything to them. Guess I was thinking if they looked toward the sound of my voice, they might see and recognize Di. She stays right with me, but I was afraid to let her off lead just in case she spotted them and ran to them... and all 3 disappeared.

I know a number of you don't understand WHY they don't come to me. Once dogs are loose and away from their home area, they go into a different thought process. Everything reverts to instinct and they just don't see things the way they did before. (People are the same way under extreme stress.) I know a number of people who have gone through the same thing as I am and the only thing that works is to either catch them or to trap them some place quiet where they can't escape easily and you can sit, talking to them until they calm enough to recognise you. Unfortunately, I don't think either of those is going to happen with my girls. I'm afraid they are going to get down to the interstate or over to the next road which is just as busy.

I've pretty much decided this is over and I'm going to have to move on. I just can't do it yet. I'm putting out flyers this afternoon when I have someone to help me. My head is constantly working out senarios where the girls stay off the roads and make a big circle back to this area. Not much chance of that, but it's all I have right now.

Re: EMY's pups, my apologies
I know I've been neglecting my promise to all of you for pictures at least every 10-14 days. AND the puppies were 4 weeks yesterday but I didn't get them weighed. I will do both today and tomorrow and get everything posted.
