LOST: Yellow Lab

My dear yellow lab, Connor, got out this morning and he’s now been gone all day. I’ve been driving around the neighbourhood, on all of the little side streets and lanes, and calling his name. His best friend Halas even came up with his mom to help us look for Connor.

We’re expecting some storms to roll through later today, and he HATES storms. Please send good wishes and maybe a couple of prayers that he is found by some kind soul, or that he manages to find his way back home.Classic Connor 008If you have any information, please e-mail me directly, and if you’re in Baltimore, please share this with friends.

Thanks so much.

  2. Good God, what awful news.

    Please let him be found soon.

    Have you checked your old neighborhood?

    Sending a prayer to st. Anthony, Patron Saint of lost objects, and labs.

  7. So worried for you both. Hope you find him soon. Don't forget to call your old neighbors. Sometimes after a move they wonder back home.
    Wish I was there to help you look.

  8. I have a heartache for you. I have a yellow lab that has gotten out a time or two, and has always been found with a great story to tell. I am wishing the same for you.

  15. Oh no, Connor! I'm too far away to help, but I'll he hoping for his safe return. You probably already have, but if not, call your police, animal officer and any large local vet offices- Hubby and I have a talent for finding lost dogs and we start at local vets to scan for chips, then bring the dog to the police or fire station, whichever we can find first!
    Best of luck!

  16. This is terrible. He's out in the terrible weather and I am sure hating it. Would he know how to find his way to his new home? We can't wait to hear back from you that all is well.

  19. Uhg! Post signs, post and check Lost and Found on Craigslist too! That always worked for finding our lost lab. Saying a prayer!!! Labs are VERY resilient and friendly so someone will find him if he doesn't find his way.

    Hope you've found him already! I can imagine how frantic you must be. I'm sure you'll be reunited soon.

  23. Our lab Daisy took off when she was a year old. No address tag, only her license. She ended up at a travel agency three miles away: they called the city with her license number.
    Someone will find Connor. Sending good thoughts.

  25. My mother in South Africa even e-mailed me... horrified at the news. This is what she wrote:

    "Oh no, no, no. I am devastated. Just praying he is found.
    Please phone her to ask - tell her your mother from the other side
    of the world is praying that he returns. Just love him to bits - he is
    such a character. "

    Thinking of you SO much! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  28. How terrible. We'll all be waiting to hear that you've found him again. When I lost a dog(a beagle) I put posters in peoples mailboxes and on telephone poles in a 2 mile radius, in addition to calling all possible authorities. Some local radio stations will also read lost dog warnings. Hope you find him soon.

  30. Have you put signs up in Wyman park? Now that you live so close, I'm sure you've walked connor there, or will soon when you are reunited (good thoughtS!!) A neighbor of mine from our Wyman Park Drive days used to supplement her retirement income walking dogs--her name is Maya and she's there once or twice a day at least--hard to miss as she always has at least five astonishingly well behaved dogs on leashes all around her. She always knows what's what. If you find her, tell her Kate and Denis from 311 say hello. Best wishes for Connor's safe return and congratulations on your home! I love Hoe's Heights! I used to walk to the Superfresh with my baby and my lab, and then we'd stop at the Turnover Shop for a quick browse and a dum-dum lollipop on the way home.

  39. Meg, for B'more locals who don't already "know" Conor from the blog, do you want to describe his collar (and mention his age)? Am waiting to see a big "he's baaack" update, soon. Good luck.

  44. Lots of helpful information here:

    http://www.wikihow.com/Find-a-Lost-Dog

    When my cat Mr Snugglemuffins was lost the best tip I got was from a guy who lives above the barbershop on Wash. Blvd. who saw one of the many flyers I posted.

    Don't forget to check shelters at least every 3 days. You have to go and look physically every 3 days. They are too busy to keep up with phone requests especially at this time of year.

    I hope some of the information at the above site will help with your plan to find dear Conner. I know he is looking for you too. I hope you are reunited soon.

    Let me know if I can help.
