Neither Beasley nor I slept very well last night. Beasley is very upset about Barbie being gone, and he is spending a lot of time sulking and acting sad. He didn't want to go outdoors this morning, but we went anyway -- on an hour long walk circling through this entire part of town. I was hoping that Beasley's nose would lead us to Barbie, but we've had no luck.

The radio station will be airing a missing dog report, and the advertisement starts in the paper tomorrow. All the local vets have been notified, as well as the pet stores. I called the local shelter again to see if she's been found and turned in, but only got their answering machine again.

Once I get flyers printed out I'll be putting them up on all the light poles and in the stores around the area.

My coat and Barbie's crate are both still out in the yard, in the hopes that she'll follow her nose home.

I never realized how attached Beasley is to Barbie. Beaz didn't want to do anything at all last night or this morning, and he spent most of the evening at complete alert listening for sounds of her possible return. When I was getting his breakfast ready this morning, he just sat on the couch looking at me very sadly and only came into the kitchen when I called him -- and then very slowly.

For myself, I'm feeling terrible -- lack of sleep doesn't help much, and I don't know what else to do.

missing Barbie like crazy.

A well-trained dog will make no attempt to share your lunch. He will just make you feel so guilty that you cannot enjoy it. - Helen Thomson
