    Rowan is currently missing and has been since tea time

    Out of my sight for less than two minutes - her mum and Frankie came back to me, she hasn't been seen since.

    I have just come in to get more warm clothing and will then be back out searching

    I am distraught to think what's happened to her, she is not a dog to ever stray far from either me or her mum

    Picture of her on front of my website

    Thank you everyone for your good thoughts, im afraid we have no good news though.

    I have run through it all in my head a thousand times and i can't work out what's happened to her.

    I walk the same route at that location nearly everyday, the dogs know it inside out. Rowan will not roam far, she likes to stay within sight of me. If she briefly goes out of my sight, it is only with her mum Ruby and Frankie, never on her own.

    Tonight i nearly didn't let her off the lead, thinking about a last minute Crufts inury - how trivial that all seems now. However, i let her off, she played as usual running up and down with the other two. If i can't see them for a minute i call them back to me for a check in - i did this and Ruby and Frankie came back but Rowan didn't.. I searched that area for about half an hour with the other pair still off the lead, i thought they'd show me her if she lay inured. After that time i took them back to the car and continued the search with my parents.

    She just isn't a dog to run off, she never has shown any inclination. It is silent now up on the fields and i know i'd be able to hear her if she lay injured and was able to make a noise. I don't feel i can look productively anymore with no light. It's like she's vanished into thin air.

    I know my dog and i know the area i walk and i can't think of a happy ending at the moment

    What a mystery! I, for one, will be worried all night until I hear you have found her. So you won't be spending your sleepless night alone :( .

    I had a similar experience when walking my Dobes along a VERY familiar route. They too never, ever strayed far. I stopped to help someone with directions and when I turned around Tosca, the clingiest one, was JUST MISSING - like she had been abducted by aliens. My other two Dobes were sniffing around about 200 metres away. Long story short - she went missing for THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS despite my frantic searching. And then at 3 am in the morning I heard a scratching at my patio door - SHE WAS BACK!!! Paws raw from running on a hard surface. I can only think that for some or other reason she got a fright and paniced, became disorientated and found herself LOST and then REALLY paniced.

    So don't give up hope. My thoughts are with you. PLEASE let us know AS SOON AS YOU FIND HER. :luck: :luck: :luck:
