I came home at late-lunchtime this afternoon to walk my new lovable poodle Moose. When we were 2 or 3 blocks from our house, another small dog yanked its leash from its owner's hands, and charged at us, running and growling. I did my best to keep the attacker off him -- I may have even kicked the dog. But Moose, terrified, pulled his head out of his collar and ran for his life. By the time I scared our attacker off, Moose was nowhere to be seen. We (I, my husband, and assorted neighbors) have been searching for 6 hours, now. Nothing. We even took his best-pug-buddy on our search, thinking that he'd come back to her. Nothing. I've called the local animal hospitals, the one shelter in the area, and the police. Nothing. Nowhere. It's dark, now, and he must be cold, tired hungry -- and frightened. Why won't he come home? If you're in the Englewood/Tenafly New Jersey area, and you see Moose, please contact me at 201-567-4303 or on the site. I'll be waiting.
