Where is he. Come on Bond, pop your head out so you can go home.

I've watched this from afar and I'm certainly sympathetic to the owners loss, but IMO after this amount of time, Bond probably is living with another family. At some point someone may ask questions and hopefully, it will lead to his return, but if he hasn't been found as many dogs are, hit by a car, then I truly believe he has been taken in. Why they don't return him is sad, but obvious in today's society. Someone got something for free and didn't have to work at having an incredible dog. I continue to hope that he will turn up and be returned. As an owner it would be devastating not to know where your dog is and if he is safe.

Maybe. But there was a Golden just a few months ago that wandered out of the woods after being lost a year, and she had from all appearances been foraging and taking care of herself in the woods the whole time. So it could happen.

It certainly could happen, but I'd rather think a kind family took him in and he is warm and dry and fed well than he was still roaming alone looking for food. The entire situation is very sad and I would hate to have to be put in her situation.

That's what keeps tugging at my heart strings...what if this were my dog.

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

Yes, I agree with Tayla's Mom, that it is a real good possibility that Bond is in a home somewhere. I have thought this for 2-3 weeks now. I think there has been enough noise that if he is in a home somewhere, that who ever has him is just ignoring the signs and want him that badly as to not say anything. That being the case, I think whoever has him will probably get him a collar and a name tag and try to make up a story on him, so that when they go to a vet, there is not much going to be asked. However, I think a vet that is worth there credentials will discover his tattoo and will start to wonder. I would rather the end of the Bond story end this way than he be laying out in a field somewhere. However, I will continue to pray that Carol and he are reunited soon.
