ellie is missing...

my heart is heavy.
i am afraid and feel helpless.
our neighbor phoned this morning to inform us that
ellie is missing.
although, not technically our dog.
we love her as if she is part of our family.

this loyal sweet lab never treads further than our property away.
she was healthy and happy yesterday when she stopped by for her daily cookies
and an ear rub.


something is terribly wrong.
signs have been hung.
calls made.
she is missing.


she is missed.


we are looking for you sweet ellie.


keeping the light on for you.
come home to us.

So sorry to read this. :( It really hurts when a pet disappears like that - have had it to happen. Sure hope and pray she returns.
Love your photos. I did not realize you got that much snow up there. Got up to a dusting Sat. morning and I could go the rest of Winter without any more.
(((hugs)))
