I've never actually met Blue, but he is my parent's neighbor's 12 year old standard poodle (they got him after I moved out). But I've been paying close attention to his disappearence, both because I just care about dogs and because my mom become emotionally involved (having a dog recently, and having years ago, one disappear at the farm) Blue disappeared on Monday (this is a rural area and he'd been let out to run around.). When he did not come back that night, it was feared that he'd been killed by coyotes, or that he'd fallen from a cliff and broken his neck. Yesterday, my mother was out looking for mushrooms and any sign of Blue with her poodle, up and the boundary of Blue's owners' property and another farm. She smelled something terrible coming from a sinkhole. Thinking she'd found Blue, she went to check . . and found a very dead cow and a very elderly poodle, up to his shoulder's in mud and looking up at her sadly. To make a long story short, it took both my parents, Blue's owners, six firemen, and the owner of the deceased cow, but they got Blue out of the hole. Dehydrated and going into shock from the decompression, he was rushed to the vet, where he was going ok as of last night. But he's a very old fellow . . . could I get get some vibes for him? Edit: I left out Blue's owners' handyman among the people it took to rescue Blue. It was quite a production.
