Today, I lost my dog while hiking. After searching the trails for an hour and a half, he was by the car. FML
Razi_tail tells us more :
I figured one of two things would happen: 1. He was in the same area we got separated or 2. He went back to the car. I chose to search the first option before getting a phone call that somebody found my dog. He has 3 ways to id him: dog park tag, name tag, and microchipped. It was the park tag that somebody had called on.

34.... You're 12 years old. I realize you have no idea how to appropriately socially interact with people on forums yet.... But some advice. You might wanna rethink that weird, random, out-of-context, unprovoked hating on religion. You're embarrassing 25-year-old-you and you don't even know it yet.

Lots of us are atheists. That doesn't mean you need to shout it at anyone who might possibly read your comments.


My dog did this. I left her tied up and walked away less than 10 feet for less than a minute and she was gone. She walked the mile back home and while I was looking for her, I found an abandoned dog. He became her best friend though, so I guess that's good.

I can't decide whether YDI this or not. Cause if you just left him in the car, then YDI, but if your dog somehow ran away and got into your car, then you have one awesome dog

By the way the FML is written you can infere that he was not left by the car but ran off instead.
So yeah awesome doge. Much navigation.

edit: to slow >_>

10 had it right. :) We were enjoying a hike and got separated. We were actually really far from the car at the time so I am really impressed he got back so well!

That's always how it happens. Dogs wander off, their owners grow increasingly frantic and search the surrounding areas for hours and then the dog's right next to the car or sitting in front of the door and waiting patiently for you.

I'm happy you found your dog but random dogs without their owners freak me out. Especially if they are big and they are scared and in an unfamiliar place - there is a potential for things to go wrong.

This is partially a YDI to me (even though I'll get thumbed down) because the dog was obviously off leash. I've said it before and I'll say it again, it doesn't matter how trained your dog is, they shouldn't be off leash because there are times when even the best dog will run away or chase something. This is a perfect example of that. Luckily the dog ran back to the car but this could've been a really sad story. Although no one deserves to lose their dog.

13, I totally understand! My dog is big and he was howling for me so it could have scared others easily.

66, I defiantly blame myself and not the dog. I tend to alternate between Leash and off leash time so he doesn't get too far. He will be on leash for a long time after this scare though!
