I completely believe in the power of prayer. That's why I'm asking for some. My beloved Griffey has run away. I let him out to go potty at 6am. I filled his food and water dish and stepped out to watch him but he was gone. Just like that. I don't know what's gotten into him. He's usually really good about staying in the yard. But he did this on Friday too. I found him on the next block then and swore I was getting an invisible fence. But I'm supposed to go to NYC on Thursday and won't have time to do it until I get back. I've been looking all over the neighborhood for the last hour. I can't find him. I came home to print out some pictures of him and wait until the sun came up so I could see better. I'm beside myself but trying to hold it together. Please please pray that I find my boy. He's been my baby for the last 7 years.
*** I've been searching for 8 hours. No sign of him. I've got posters all over the neighborhood with his picture on it. And the Animal Shelter has my cell phone number. He has a collar and tags so I'm praying that someone either calls me or the shelter. I'm resting for a bit cuz my head is splitting, I haven't eaten or had a shower. But I'll go back out this evening and try some more. Thanks for the postive vibes and prayers. Please let them work.
I can't stop crying.
***I went back out this evening. I just got home. It's too dark to keep looking. I think I hung a hundred flyers. I offered a reward on the flyer. I told every kid in the neighborhood I'd give them $20 bucks if they found him. So there were bike posse's looking for him all over, too. Which was good cuz a lot of people I saw out said they'd already seen his picture and heard about him from the kids. But bad cuz nobody's seen him. I'm going to leave flyers at a bunch of vet offices tomorrow and put an ad in the paper. I'm hoping someone has him but was unable to get through at the Animal Shelter cuz of the holiday and will just call in tomorrow when they open back up. I'm really hoping on that one.
It's so hard to be home when he's not here. I'm not sure how I'm going to sleep tonight. My partner stopped by to check on me. I told him it would've been easier to lose Griffey to an illness. Cuz not knowing where he is is tearing me up. It was 90 degrees again here today. What if he didn't have any water all day? I'm so worried that he's scared and lost. Now it's dark out. I'm terrified that he's hurt. He's been gone so long. Thanks for the support and prayers. If he comes home, I'll post it as soon as I can cuz I know many of you are worried about him, too.
