I am so sorry, I hope she is found!! I know here in the states, they have to be checked for microchips before they do anything with the animal. So hopefully, if she was picked up by anyone and taken to the vet or pound, they will call you. ((HUGS))

i dont know what else to say other than how sorry i am 

i don’t know what the procedure is in australia, but i know at least where i’m from that any dog that gets picked up by or taken to a shelter/pound gets scanned for a microchip before being put up for adoption or anything else – hopefully this is the case and her return may be a little easier

keeping my fingers crossed for you

*hugs* Definitely give it a couple days, PPs are right that a shelter will check for a microchip first. Or, someone could have taken her in and is waiting to get her to a vet/shelter to check for the chip.

I know it is hard to think about, so you don’t have to read this part–but if in fact she did go off to die, in a way she received a great gift–the final choice to go on her own. It is a natural thing that animals do, as you know, and although you may not be able to say goodbye to her in person, she will always be with you in your memories and your heart. It is kind of weird but sometimes I can still recall my childhood pup’s stinky smell or the feel of his ears when you scratched them–it has been years, those memories will never leave you. Katie sounds like she had a big personality and was a real sweetheart!

@MsJeep23: I second the thought of perhaps it was her time to go, I have heard of dogs slipping away to go die peacefully.

I am sooo sorry! I just got my first dog, and I can’t even imagine the pain and sorrow you are experiencing right now! She will always be your baby and have a peace of your heart.

My heart is breaking for you, I am so so sorry!

I do hope that you are able to find her alive and well, and with a microchip the pounds are required to check regardless of a collar. I know the ones around me do so I hope your locations do the same.

Again I am so sorry and I will keep praying for a positive outcome!

Any luck finding your missing girl? We recently had to put down our 14 year old boy and even though we got to say goodbye it would have been much easier if he’d been able to go on his own schedule, pain free. It’s so hard to know when it’s the right time and the guilt/selfishness of the decision can be hard to deal with. 

I hope she comes home to you and you get to spend more time with her <3

Hugs.  I am so sorry.  I know a lot of dogs go off to pass in peace- maybe you can think of her as happily running free out there?  I feel for you, a dog is a best friend.  There is nothing better than a dog that you love.
