Sad to say, but we found Corky dog yesterday. He was about a half a mile away and had gone through thin ice. Charlie and I managed to get him out of the ice and I brought him home for Keeoh dog to sniff & say goodbye, then Linda & I gave him a proper burial. Wrapped in his favorite "go to camp" blanket I laid him to rest facing the rising sun.
I found him because a neighbor told me they thought they saw him in the morning in that area. It's really weird how things work out. I never would have found him without that tip.....but, they could not have seen him. Evidence strongly shows he met his demise Sunday or early Monday. He left giant paw prints in frozen slush as he tried to cross the stream. There was only a 12 hour window that we had that slush.
That means he survived for 4 days in 10 below zero weather, quite close to home, yet was never seen. *sigh*
I am thankful for all that helped in whatever ways. Some with words, some with hands on looking. Thank you all.
