Micmac is missing!

We got home from church / soccer / swimming Sunday afternoon and only three dogs came to greet me at the gate. There is a spot by the back gate down in the woods where he could have slipped through - Darren had blocked the space but whatever he had used had been moved.
I would have called to tell you, but I can't quite keep it together long enough to be coherent on the phone.

We have searched all along the paths through the woods (not very big woods, we're right in town, but it used to be a farm in that area so there are trails between the streets) and haven't seen hide nor hair of him. A lot of people know who he is, because he was out running with Darren & the two younger dogs just on Saturday morning. Whenever I talk to people about him, they say 'Oh he's the one that runs with the other two and your husband?' We have a zillion black mutts roaming around town, so you know that a dog as distinctive as MicMac would really stand out but nobody has seen him - it's like he has disappeared off the face of the earth.

We're hoping that he is reclining on someone's couch, and we just have to find that someone. We have flyers at the grocery store, and the post office (and I gave them a copy for the carriers to see, because I figure they're out and about the most), I have postcard type things to give to people so they have our name and number, Darren has been to the shelter / SPCA twice (he says he's going to kick MicMac's little butt when he gets home, for making him have to walk through there) and they and our vet have all our contact information.

Another friend of ours who is a vet is going to have her 'girls' call the vets in the area, in case someone brought him in under the 'look at my new puppy' guise. We're doing everything we can think of, and as you can imagine we're just a tiny bit stressed. The boys seem less worried,
if only because all of our other dogs (with the exception of Sirius) have done this at least once, and Agnes seemed to make a career of it for a while there, and they've always come home.

So think positive thoughts for us, and we'll keep you informed.
