At 4 am Rudy was barking wildly at his foster mom's front door. Minus his harness and leash and with a few bug bites and red paws he was fed, watered and immediately put under the covers of the Big Bed to sleep a well earned sleep next to Catt.

There is a God! Perhaps someone found him and brought him home (this was a high profile search) or wether Rudy just walked a 6-7 mile loop, we don't know. All I know is that I am just overjoyed to be waked at 4 am with this news. Thank you all for your prayers and assistance.

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

I hope someone spots him, Vicky...I worry about the leash getting him caught up in the underbrush around there.

We've had a sighting and the old boy has travelled, Catt is over there this morning and Steve and I will go over later afternoon to place more signage and search.

any word, Vicky? you would think with a leash dragging behind him, someone could grab it.

thanks Patrice, I had to refresh the page to see that, so I guess others may experience the same. I read the entire topic this morning, and saw nothing that would indicate he was found.
