Our Dear Buster went missing in Poulsbo, WA on 12/20/13. It has been a month now. He is nearly 9 years old, microchipped, neutered, was 85 pounds when he left. He is a gold color (about 8 on the scale of 1-10.) He smiles, is friendly and tends to have yeasty paws that can itch if not cared for. He is OCD about a ball and acts like he is 2 all over again. A little white about the eyebrows starting. I can be reached at 360-509-9085.

Thank you for tip

Hi friends,
Thank you and am following each lead and new website you recommend. Some when I cannot post I am sending an email with a flyer. I have been in touch with the Evergreen Golden rescue but cannot connect directly to inland but found an email contact there. We have found MANY shelters and rescues and humane society's but many also do not get colored faxes so my plan is to start stuffing envelopes with color flyers because I cannot cover the entire state as well by car/foot as some days I still need to be mom/nurse. Please see the ad on the found female golden from Port Gamble as she is staying with us for now. We are searching for her people also. She was found by folks thinking she was Buster--strong resemblance-wrong gender. But at least she is safe.:wave:

Hi Karen--
Got your PM but unable to respond yet. Yes, we have advertised the girl golden everywhere we put Buster's little face also. Nearly a month now and just the one call from WVA for her. That's all. But, yes, golden groups, CL, fb lost and found pages, newspapers and even mailed out over 70 flyers to animal hospitals and shelters in our state....Thank you for asking.

It's May--nearly end of May now. 5 months without Buster. Still feels like a fresh open wound. Yes, life goes on and yes, we still hang flyers and search and he is in 7 newspapers....how could he just vanish? His eyes should be very bloodshot by now with golden uveitis. I don't want him to get glaucoma ---worry for him. And we still miss him a lot.

7 months...really?

It's been over 7 months now since Buster vanished. No sign, no inquiry on his micro chip, nothing. MANY newspaper ads and online ads and facebook shares later, nothing. So, I am letting ads expire, not putting up posters anymore...I'm not giving up, dear Buster. I'm just backing off. Still praying, still hoping, but not publicly so much. I hope you are okay and I hope if you are gone that I can find a way to know this for sure and let you go. But I'm putting the larger part in God's hands because he works greater miracles than I could even imagine. I love you, Buster and I miss you every day.

I just read through this thread and I can't begin to imagine the heartbreak you are going through. I will keep you and Buster in my prayers.

8 months now--have had a few people offer to GIVE me their golden---one I took for my stepson because these folks got into a real financial jam and she said she felt compelled to call us. We now have 'joint custody' of this pup as he likes to visit his grandmom sometimes! But, still no Buster. I love you, Buster--I miss you like I never knew I would and never wanted to know.
