  •  I know just how you feel: post flyers (3+ / 0-)

    Flyers help.   The cat got out at a house on the mainland with cars and coyotes -- cat sitter accidently let him out.   He had been gone for five days (the "adult" catsitter was too scared to call us to say that she lost the cat.)   I had given up.  My wife was scouring the woods looking for a cat body (we have large Coyotes).   We put up posters anyway, that night we got a text message at 2:00am that somebody saw the cat.   Within minutes he was home.   I do not know the story, if somebody had 'adopted' him (he is a scaredy cat so it seems unlikely) or it was coincidence.   He is not talking.

    If there is a special treat that the dog likes, put it high up on a chair.    If the treats disappear it means the dog might be around.    If you have a webcam point it at the treats.   Go around calling the dog as much as you can but then stick around the house -- the dog might not come right away but will hear you and may decide to come back to the house after an hour (if he is like a cat, at least.)   Put water outside for him.

    Good luck, I know what you are feeling.   I was literally feeling sick a couple of days ago when the cat didn't show up for breakfast and it was silly since we are on Orcas which he knows like the back of his paw.
