[If you came looking for the poem, scroll down to the next post, after you read this important message.]

For over a year I have been working on a novel about a stolen dog, whose owner won't give up searching. Imagine my sadness in discovering that this scenario is playing out in real life in Australia. I cannot fathom the living nightmare this woman is enduring.
Someone, somewhere knows where her dog is.

Please direct everyone to this website:

Hug your hounds extra tight.
And count your blessings. Twice.


  1. We are on our way to join up! Love A+A

  2. Dear Patience-please
    Thank you very much for helping me find my brother, Beau. Some visitors came through to Beau's website from your post. Please check Beau's video on YouTube or else type 'Finding Beau' in the search field. A stranger did this for my mum. She found Beau's website by accident and she was so touched by mum's love for Beau and because she's still searching for Beau 4 1/2 years later, she put together this video. We're trying to get hoomans to view the video so that it can get noticed on YouTube. Also, please check out and click on the banner Operation Bring Beau Home. Many doggies and hamsterriers are joining Supreme Commander Stormy A04 Troop and wearing Trooper helmets to bring Beau home in 2008.
    Our mum is very grateful to you for caring about Beau, and for your help.
    Love from Hammer

  3. Hi Patience-please
    I just noticed your comment on Marvin's blog. I didn't realise you were part of DWB. You'd know about Stormy's Orders.
    Thank you for helping to bring Beau home in 2008.
    Love from Hammer

  4. We all want Beau to come home soon!
    We admire his mom for not giving up! Sure someone knows something!
    Kisses and hugs

  5. I have joined the A04 mission to bring Beau home. Beau's story is a really good story to work on.


  6. I have joined this very important mission too!

    We so want dear Beau to be found!

    As you say someone, somewhere must know where Beau is!

    Perhaps the power of the internet may help to Bring Beau Home.

    love and licks, Marvin in Scotland xx

  7. Oh my, I can't even imagine what I would do..Soo sad.


  8. Gosh almighty. I'm really sad and mad that some HOO-MAN would steal somebody's fur baby. I even linked the story of Beau to my blog, too. Just in case someone somewhere reads about him. I'm getting "helmetized" so I can help look for Beau with the rest of the Army.

    Prayers and peace go with you....

  9. That poor lady, I have no idea how I would cope if one of The Lurchers went missing. It must be so desperate just not knowing.

  10. You are helping the mission! Thanks!

  11. Hi !

    Thanks so much for spreading the word about Beau...he deserves to be home with his family & I can't imagine how empty the hearts of his peoples are...There is also a newf in Chicago that is lost..for almost a month now...his name is Jonny (Tug) & he's a retired show dog..
    You might know about him already..but just thought I'd let you know..

    Love & Licks,
