Monday Mischief – One Dog Lost Two Dogs Found!!

Luckily I’ve never been lost – but I can imagine it’s pretty scary both for any Dog that’s got lost or for their family who can’t find them….

Mum and I have somehow found probably close to 10 Dogs in the last 2 years – and most of the time they’ve had their telephone number on their collar and we’ve been able to get them back home!  Yay :)

The other week Mum, Cosmo and I set off for a walk when we were stopped by a lady in a car – she asked if we’d seen her young Black Lab Mix Dog named Oscar.  We hadn’t but took down her number and told her we’d look out for him….

Hey Cosmo – You look that way and I’ll look over here…


We carried on to the Park, but somehow Mum thought we needed to include in our walk today the new houses at the far part of our development as that’s where Oscar would be – weird, right?  Cosmo and I didn’t argue, we just went along with her hunch.

Mum, we’re still looking out for the lost dog


About 40 minutes later we were there and some people were outside their houses trying to get the attention of a Lab, however, it definitely looked more Chocolate Brown than Black.

Mum asked if it was lost and they said it was, but they couldn’t get close to it as it was scared, they’d even tried treats – Mum said it may come up to us as we passed because Cosmo and I were there and true enough it came bounding over….

It wouldn’t let Mum touch it’s collar, so we just hung out for a while and eventually it was comfortable enough for Mum to hold it’s collar.

Unfortunately there was no name or number or tags – but one of the neighbors went and got a lead from their house.

Hey Buddy – Don’t worry, we’ll help you find your family :)


Mum called the lady from earlier and she’d just found her Dog Oscar, so this was definitely a different one that we’d found – the neighbors took the Dog in and gave him some water.

We found out later that the Chocolate Lab had been re-united with it’s family after some asking around.  It’s a new neighborhood, so most people don’t know each other or their Dogs yet….

We were very happy that both of these Dogs who decided to go off and explore and find some Mischief in the neighborhood managed to stay safe and get back home :)

We love a happy ending :)

Have you ever got out and gone looking for Mischief and got lost?

    Glad that both dog´s found their way back home :D

  4. That is scary! I am so happy that both of these guys got reunited with their families. Thank goodness your Momma has been so helpful in finding lost doggies and getting them back to their families. I think I would have a heart attack if one of my dogs ran away!

  5. Us Labs like to take off for no apparent reason. How cool that that your mom was eventually able to nab the Chocolate one and that both of them found their ways home.

  7. Good job for helping out. I have never been lost, but Torrey was lost for about an hour when she was still a young pup. The scariest hour of moms life.

  8. Hey Snoopy, Jet here.

    Love seeing you and Cosmo together, you guys look so great!

    Oh, thank heavens that the story ended well. Thank Mum for us… we’ve had to call about humans about 5 dogs over the last few years. Feels so good to reunite families. :)

  9. I helped my person meet lots of our neighbors by running off. I think I was doing her a favor – helping her meet those people, but she learned my escape tricks and now I rarely get to go running off anymore.

  11. Good thing about our guys, they like to stick around and they like the pack to be together. Jasmine particularly hates it when the pack splits or somebody “goes missing” so she always keeps tags on everybody and never goes further than where she can keep an eye on everybody from.

    Have a great day!

  16. It’s lucky that these guys have you around to help them Snoopy! Sounds like you need a Paw-ty for all the new dogs in the neighbourhood so that you can get to know eachother *wag wag wag*

  17. Well done. Funny we just posed an urgent help blog yesterday as one our furry friends is missing over in The USA. No news yet. We agree owners usually talking on their phones and not paying attention. We too have helped and found lods of dogs on the park. By the way if you have an pals that can help share on FB or Twitter the details are on the blog. Have a lovely Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  18. Way to listen to your gut, Mom! You and Cosmo are good lookouts, Snoopy. I got a call this morning about someone finding my adopted out Coonhound (again). Hickory Dock is a friendly guy; I’m glad they left my collar-tag on his collar. He has 40 acres on which to roam but he is a people dog so he keeps finding new neighbors and friends :(. I need to make a call…..

  21. Great job for helping out! We lost Cocco once (he wandered to our front yard) and although he was perfectly fine looking for yummy grass to eat, we were pretty scared!

  26. That dog was lucky that you found him and that your mom is very nice with a lot of patience! I got into a mischief getting lost a while ago, before I met my family. I even had to go to jail, but that is where I met my mom, so it worked out :)

    BTW Snoopy, I have something cool for you on my blog!
    Remy recently posted..This Is For Me?My Profile

  27. Yep, us dogs attract those wild runaway types! We are often hounded by a lost dog, mom has called the police several times because the dogs don’t have tags. Hate to send them to the pound but we can’t let them run free and get hurt. Good work!

  29. Snoopy you have a great Mom! it is good that she gets involved and that is great that a neighbor had a lead to put on the doggy!
    So happy that both doggies found their way back home.
    i have never been lost and I sure don’t want to be!

  31. We have a knack for finding lost dogs too!! I bet that family was so happy to have their pup home again – you and Cosmo did a great job!!

  32. Aww, so glad that Oscar’s family found him again. I’m sure his owners were frantic about his whereabouts. You truly made a good job along with Cosmo!

  33. Wow what great news..Why don’t they put a phone number on a tag on the collar? I’m micro-chipped and I have a tag.. Tags don’t cost much and if a dog got lose, at least there is more chance of it being reunited with it’s owner :) xx00xx Luv’s ya Snoops and job well done to both of you :)

    • Hi Mollie,

      Yep, I have my number on my tags, it sure does make it a lot easier when we find a Dog if they have a phone number (as Mum always brings her phone) and then it’s super useful if it’s a number they’re likely to answer at any time like a cell phone :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  34. Sometimes moms just get that hunch. I’m glad your mom followed through with it and thankfully you and Cosmo went along with it. I’m sure the chocolate lab was so very thankful for your assistance.

    • Hi Jodi,

      Yeah, Mum thought it was the weirdest thing, but she was so convinced we would find a Doggie over there?! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  35. That is awesome that both dogs found their peoples!!! It is so scary to be lost!

  36. We’ve found a few lost dogs and managed to find out where they belong. I sneaked out once and I was missing for about ten minutes – they were frantic!
    Clowie recently posted..Love Me TenderMy Profile

    • Hey Clowie,

      You’re funny – though I can imagine how stressed your family were – isn’t it awesome when you can help get a Doggie back home?! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)
