Black and white spotty Pointer found wearing black harness

From Kelly Pritchard:

I have just found a dog on the school run to Monkton Farleigh.  It’s Tuesday 15th January. The dog was howling in the middle of the lane, I stopped to call it to me but it was scared and would not approach.  It ran off across the fields.  A few of us tried to call it and think who it belonged to but it was last sighted heading across the fields in the direction of the back road that heads towards South Wraxall, near the driving range.  This was at about 3.30pm. It was very vocal, we tried whistling and calling but it wouldn’t come back.

I rang the Council dog warden to report sighting, but they said they wouldn’t come out if it wasn’t restrained, and they weren’t linked up to any databases for missing dogs!! So quite useless really!  Please spread this message in the hope that the dog is reunited with it’s owners before it gets dark

Missing dog update

From Michelle Brown:

Dear all, we’d like to thank everyone for their help and support in finding Otto, thank you all! Otto had gone missing from his daily walk in the Avenue on Monday 31st December 2018 and didn’t make his way home as he usually would! After several days of searching and following up leads from sightings in Calne and Winsley to no avail, volunteers from came to the village to help find him. On Friday afternoon they tracked all possibilities of where he could be from knowing the details of his last walk, setting up several bedding stations. It was about 5.30 pm and dark when the volunteers noticed Otto’s body by a small stream near the private woodland. Otto didn’t have any obvious injuries and so we think he may have had a fit or cardiac event that he was not able to survive. We are obviously very sad to loose him , but know he had a great life in a lovely village with access to wonderful open fields and woodlands that any dog would love. Thank you to everyone who helped in finding him and for your understanding and support, Michelle, Ruby and Bella at Upper Farm.

“Just to say thank you so much for the Wellbeing day at the beginning of February. It was AMAZING and so good for my head. I hadn’t realised until we started the day quite how tense I was and how knotted my shoulders were but after the breathing, guided visualisation, relaxation and meditation activities throughout the day I felt like a new woman! I felt completely de stressed and my tight neck and shoulders had entirely cleared. I have been using the deep focused breathing and relaxing from my toes up strategies since and am managing to maintain my level of calm so I guess they are strategies for life that will work for me.” CW
