    This little dog is now very thin and lame according to sightings being made. She is 10 years old and the weather is closing in. If anyone in the north Oxon area can help look we need you. She is nervous of other dogs and some people got within a yard of her but their own dog barked and she ran. We have now established the area she is using is an Calvert with the railway line being the boundary. It is a huge rural area.

    I do hope she's reunited very soon - it just proves how very resourceful lost whippies can be!

    I was explaining how Doglost works to my daughter with a friend with a lost lab. This is a wonderful example of it at its best!

    Anyone who's not seen it in action - click on the doglost link, scroll down the page and read the ongoing almost military tracking down of little Poppy and the wonderful and generous spirit of the doggie people, at least one who I recognise as a K9er, searching for her - I hope it's just a matter of time before she's home in front of the fire.

    Well done Doglost and all the searchers and come home soon Poppy!

    We have pinned her down to a very small area now and a trap has been set. She is fending for herself as bones have been found and has a set routine that she seems to follow. We think she is sleeping in hay on a Clay pigeon site so is keeping warm. Thats the good bit the even better bit will be when we catch her. It has been brilliant to meet up with all the people who are looking out for her and even funnier listening to phone calls to husbands saying well get your own dinner this dog is more important :thumbsup:

    Another sighting of Poppy today- she was curled up in the ditch by the side of the bridlepath! Her owner turned up soon after but she was nowhere to be found.

    He has left his well worn jumper in the trap which has been moved to the place where she was last seen.

    I am going over there tomorrow to walk along the bridlepath again and see if there is any sign of her.

    Come on Poppy- it feels as if we are getting closer- just give yourself up! :blink:

    Poppy was finally caught in the trap today. She is very thin but other than that she is okay. We were just starting to give up hope a bit so this is just great news. I think I have walked miles this past couple of weeks but I met some great people and I never want to smell another landfill site again.
