Basil's Mummy - that is so lovely. And, that says it all. Basil is waiting for you, watching over you from heaven until you are reunited, never to be parted again. God bless you. x
My darling daughter Emma you did bring basil boy home. I know it was not easy for you to break the news to me over the phone, as you had to tell me nan had past away also. All i wanted was to give you a hug Emma & say God says when its our time. I am Basil`s Mummy. I want you to all know, your words have given so much comfort to me during the early hours this morning. My heart sank when I got home yesterday, as I hoped it was a dream & Basil would be waiting to dart at me with lots of cuddles as I walked in the door.He made coming home so nice, he was so soppy, funny & cute. My beloved, beautiful basil boy had made his was to the rainbow bridge where he will run free. I am truly devastated, I am sure you will all understand my heart is broken, yet I feel so lucky to have with me some wonderful memories he has left with myself & many others, darling Emma you did bring my baby home, please dont think you are to blame. It was my angels time to go and be set free. his spirit lives on. basil boy thank you with all my heart for simply being the sweetest, lovable & funny dog. Simon13 thank you so much for supporting my daughter & helping her. once again thank you all... R.I.P basil boy I love you with all my heart.. always & forever xxxxx

I am so sorry for your loss.My dog June got out of an open gate and was killed by a car.The shock is terrible and the guilt and blame resounds in your head,I know.Accidents are just that,accidents.It is no-one,s fault.Life can be very cruel sometimes.Take time to grieve,weep and cry but you will come out the other end with an understanding that things happen beyond our control.Basil is with God now and he is safe.Again I am so sorry for your loss.xxxx
Please tell your mum we did our best. Was trying to get word to minicab firms as they are out on the roads and hence why I needed placenames. We have to be quick in an urban town. Maybe show your mum this page it might help show how others cared. Stay strong.
I can't imagine what you're going through - I can only echo what Kim has just said - I'm so very sorry. xx

Emma, I am SO very sorry! I feel for you, as this is an awful situation to be in. Do the best you can, and give your mum time to heal - it will be very hard for both of you. But, you both need to know that Basil was probably knocked out, so he wouldn't have suffered. I don't know why these things have to happen, I wish they didn't. I lost my dog in a similar way and your mum will probably be in shock for a while, but hang in there, she will pull through. You can show her how hard you tried to find Basil and you did find him! You know what happened and where he is; I know it doesn't stop the pain, but it is better than not knowing - for all of you. Basil is safe in the arms of God now - Emma, you found him. God bless you, your mum, dad and Basil. With love, Kim x
My thoughts are with Basil's family, run free at the bridge little man xx
Oh no - so sorry Emma - Poor Basil. RIP at the bridge. Liz xx

Oh Emma, I am so so sorry. Was so wishing you had a happy ending. Thinking of you at this awful time Emma x Sleep tight precious boy xxx
Thank you for all your help and support in trying to find however I received the devastating phone call today to say Basil ran out onto the A13 on Saturday and didn't make it to the local vet. He died at 5:30 on 28/05/2011 and I have no clue how to break my mum's heart :(
Posters in rear windows of as many cars as possible is always good. They will be seen further afield and when parked (in supermarket car parks etc) will be seen by other car drivers - leaving & returning to their vehicles. Some of these will be folk who don't normally see posters in pedestrian areas and might just jog a memory.

Sure that Basil will soon be back home where he belongs.
Also guy's regarding placenames -

Relevent streetnames are : Applewood drive, Cumberland Road, Prince regents lane, New barn St (last seen on)

Relevent area's- Plaistow, Canning Town ( Basil has walked to on occaisions), Custom House, East Ham, Beckton, upton park
These are the closest surrounding area's I can think of so definately possible locations where he might be xxxx

Still no joy as yet but having spoke to jayne today and getting her much needed help notifying the microchip company, i'm feeling much more positive now. All avenues have been covered in terms of local authorities and so forth. Just gonna get postering the rest of Newham and get mum's dog back :) Thanks for all your kind encouraging words everyone, definately hopeful xx
Have added #Plaistow and #London as placenames on twitter.

Emma, just keep postering. Once people see the poster, they will remember him and you will get a sighting. Then you are half way there! x

Basil is now on system as missing and they have taken Emma mobile plus the doglost number with ID as above.
There have been no reports to petlog as yet of him being picked up.
DogLostCJ - Police Liaison Co-ordinator
Spoken to Emma to check re chip details. As she does not have them she did not know how to report him as missing
. AS doglost have pin access to obtain details i am phoning for them to trace using name address and full postcode. Once they have found the number he can be reported as missing. They may or may not take Emma number as contact but i know they will take doglost so at least they will have something on records.
I will also be able to check if any found calls have been reported to them.
At the moment the lines have been engaged for over half and hour but will just keep trying till i get through. CJ
you have my No Emma. Anything I can do I will not too busy tomorrow so can be avalible
Keep strong Emma, I agree with comments on here e.g. parents house and bank holiday. I bet you have news Tuesday/Wednesday. Liz xx
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Emma, deep breath, okay? You can find him. Poster everything, everywhere! This is the most important thing you can do. Put posters in the eye line of motorists; poster all parks and grassy areas where dog walkers go. As mentioned previously, do you live close to your parent's home? Dogs are very clever. If not, its most likely he'll hang around your area, somewhere. Any nice bushes, away from traffic, a park, a stream, a food source? Double check the authorities - some dog wardens don't work weekends, so if someone's found him they may keep him till Tuesday. You can do this. Come on little one, time to come back.
Thanks for all your advice and help everyone, No joy as yet but I have contacted and reported our loss to all the local authorities in the surrounding area, Battersea Lost Dog organisation, local pounds and also a couple of local vets. Once again thanks so much everyone, ur all my beacons of light in the darkness xxxx
Just back from putting up posters with the owner. Have advised here of nos for local pounds and vets. Hopefully we will get news soon
Just checked on the ads to see if anyone had found her - nothing at present.
I will share on my facebook page, i hope Basil is home very soon...

local helper out with owner now putting up posters. thanks...
Don't know how far you live from your parents home but he may well be heading in that direction, so probably worth postering and checking along the route he might take.

If you have access to your parents home check the ansaphone as that will be the number stored on his identichip.

Also remember it's Bank Holiday weekend so whoever has found him will be limited in what they can do until Tuesday.

Really hope he's back safe & sound very soon.
shared on facebook, hope he is home soon x
DogLostJayne - Administrator, Head Office
poster e mailed to helpers in E3,6,7,12,13,14,15,16.
Please Please help!!

Basil is not my dog he belongs to my parents who have gone on holiday and i desperately need to find him before they come home as i'd really like to avoid a public execution!! Jokes aside, we all really love him and i desperately want him home because i know he probably very scared.
Any time or information is greatly appreciated. Thanks Emma xx
