Just back from previously booked week's holiday. I did manage to mostly enjoy it as I'm afraid I'm getting used to the situation. However, heard nothing from anyone surprisingly. Had my phone on all the time and family all ready to help as I was sure I'd get a call for the "reward"/"costs" or whatever these opportunist thieves like to call it. Neither Mabel nor Flash are of any use to them. But nothing. There's hardly a person alive who hasn't seen the posters. Presumably chucked them back out on the road again. IF any of it's true, of course......Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I've heard it all now !! Who would do such a ridiculous thing? Sounds very odd to me. Are the travellers still there? If so, get the idiot who handed the dogs to them on a plate to "pop " into their campsite and just take them back !!Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

What a gorgeous picture of Flash! Amazing that the finder handed the dogs to travellers and not police/dogwarden ect....Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

After seeing posters someone has rung owner to say he had picked up 2 similar dogs running loose 2 weeks ago and handed them into the local travellers site at Burgess Hill.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Yesterday 5.30 pm-ish I had a call - a couple had seen a black and tan terrier dog without a collar running down the Fittleworth end of the Fittleworth Road. They were going North, towards Wisborough Green (where I am at the other end of the road - about 2 miles). The dog came to the driver's side and looked up (as Flash does) and then ran up a bank into the woods. As they drove on they saw a poster and rang me immediately. Within 20 minutes I had two friends up there, looking and calling. And I came back home that way at 6. I drove at 5 miles an hour, (tiny road) calling all the way home. Some friends who were riding up there (Bedham) also called and called. I am sure he'd come home from there. He's been up there with (and without me) before. I expected him to appear at dusk. However, if it's him and he's been dumped there (Fittleworth is on the poster) as he's too "hot" I wonder if he's confused and disorientated. I'm going up there again later today and I might leave some old shirts or something (discreetly!) in the woods at that further end of the road. If it is him, he'll find something familiar and maybe stay thereabouts. Or it's someone else's dog who won't notice. Oh, it's awful - one just doesn't know.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Thanks so much - all of you...someone heard two terriers barking in the woods near here. This person couldn't account for them as all her neighbours have big dogs. I went to see, taking Bonnie, Mabel's dam, Flash's granddam, but could hear nothing. I slightly wonder if they've been chucked out of a car today near where they were picked up now they're locally "hot" and not fertile. Maybe, just maybe, they might come home this evening. Otherwise - who knows. The fact that one hasn't come back on it's own is odd. But who'd want them? Flash is pretty smart little dog but no "use" to anyone else. Also Mabel is lame, has Perthe's disease in her hips which needs operating on again and has only just had another minor op last week. She's a wreck! but a feral terrier with no self preservation at all! If she's off the lead for 3 seconds, she's gone, across the farm. All this speculation.....I hit a low today. It's very tough.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hello all - this is Cate, Flash and Mabel's owner. This "adventure" is a normal occurrence but, not off the farm and not overnight, let alone 3 so something's wrong..... We've done loads very locally. A have a chum who's covering Billingshurst, down to Pulborough, Storrington, etc. I'm going further north of Wisborough Green, Kirdford, Loxwood etc. I'm also trying other dog wardens and police not immediately local to me. The NFU and the Chiddingfold Leconfield and Cowdray Hunt email lists will spread the word too. Any more news and ideas, I'll let you know.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Just logged on from the weekend and see that Flash and Mabel are missing. Have emailed both posters to Farthings, Anvil, Downslink and Arthur Lodge Vets in Horsham and Southwater, also Old Clayton kennels where the Horsham area stray dogs are sent to. Does anyone have the Billingshurst and WG area vets email addresses? Can do SCATS tomorrow or has somebody already been in there? Would it be usefull to have both their pictures on one poster, people may recognise a distintive pair as these roaming together.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

What a gorgeous boy Flash is and a lovely photo of him curled up. Great name for this very handsome JRT. Poster as widley as possible round the area where he went missing and any favourite places that he knows wells. If you have insurance check the policy to see if it covers advertising and reward. Hope he is safely home soonxxxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Posters need to be displayed as soon as possible on notice boards, lamp posts, entrances to parks, dog bins and on cars. Take posters to vets, pet shops, postmen (for sorting offices), milkmen, dustmen, street cleaners, taxi drivers, schools, pubs, youth clubs, newsagents, post offices, takeaways, dog training clubs, supermarkets and car parks. Hand out reduced-down posters or cards to people - especially dog walkers - and deliver to houses and businesses. Police stations, Dog Wardens, the RSPCA and all rescue centres need checking frequently and preferably visited in person by owner or someone who knows Flash well. Stay safe Flash, until you are found x Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
