    There is apparently a story on the "Today" show about a beagle that was separated from the young owner, but they were reunited...

    Apparently the girl, in NYC had the beagle as a puppy, but he got out and disappeared. That was 5 years ago and last week got a call from a shelter in Georgia. The beagle (Rocco) was found (a chip had been implanted in the ear of the beagle when he was a puppy. The girl's family went to Georgia and brought the dog back to NYC. It was a really great story.

    Thats the kind of story to start the day.. not the difficulty of the stockmarket!

    So how much effort would you make if your canine or feline companion vanished?

    Wow, a reunion after 5 years, what a nice happy ending.

    If my pet disappeared I would be heartbroken and shattered. There wouldn't be anything I wouldn't do to find him or her.

    When Caslon and Bodoni are out, I always have a bit of worry about them. Nothing makes me happier than to see them coming back in...esp. Caslon he hasn't got a brain nor a place to put one. He is as cute as a button but as dumb as they come.

    I can remember when they were kittens, if they meowed slightly differently during the night I would wake right up to see if something was wrong...like a mother with a baby.

    This reminded me of my aunt's dog, Patrick, who was left in the care of another aunt of mine (her sister) when she and her family relocated abroad. This was in 1987.
    She only managed to visit her sister after 15 years, and the dog was still alive and although it was sedentary, Patrick suddenly came back to life, barking in glee! It was all so amazing to see. He never left my auntie's side and was even able to climb the stairs again! A few days after my visiting aunt left, the dog just didn't wake up. That was the saddest, saddest day in 2002.
    I guess I haven't completely mourn for Patrick. I am in tears as I am typing this! Our families miss him so much. Not anyone in our family owned nor adopted a dog ever again.
    LOL@YOU

    What a great story. My two big furry chows are the children I never had - so I guess I'd do just about anything to get them back.

    Aww you found a story about a dog reunion, a beagle no less.

    What if the dog they got back was all evil though? And it attacks them while they're sleeping. Could happen...

    I would be willing to place a wager that there is more of a chance for a man to attack me than a beagle..LOL

    In normal circumstances yes.

    But what if this was a whole conspiracy? The dog has been in evil dog training school for the past five years and was "conveniently" reunited to the family. Only to assassinate them and make it look like an accident. As you know, Beagles are very smart. Example: Snoopy

    He has a point. Especially if the dog has been hanging around this guy...

    dammit Caslon, why did you have to post that?

    Something that adorable couldn't possible commit the crimes I've described. Crap!

    Maybe this one though, see the evil gleam in it's eye

    Someone at work told me about this last night as I was telling her about a stray Pit mix I found in the parking lot at work yesterday morning.

    Poor thing looked like he'd been on the loose for a while. I happened to have some dog food in my briefcase from when I brought my dog to work weeks ago. He wolfed that down and started scratching at the bag looking for more.

    I sent my partner to the store to buy some dog food and we gave him some water. We were able to get him into our car and drive him to a shelter with a good adoption program.

    Our dog does not have a chip, but he does have a number tattooed on his belly that identifies him through the SPCA.

    I want to get that chip. I've heard they even have ones now with GPS built in. Is that true?

    We'd be inconsolable if anything happened to our dog. I spent all morning taking care of a dog that's not mine. So, as you can imagine, I'd comb the Earth to find ours!
