Writer's Block: Lassie, come home!

Have you ever had a pet that ran away? Did you eventually find her or him? If not, how long did it take you to recover?
Yes I have. Not really sure if I'll ever really "recover" from it. We had a dog we adopted from friends when they couldn't keep her anymore. After having her a few years, she ended up having puppies. A tornado wiped out our fence and she ran off with her boyfriend shortly afterwards. A few months later, there were the most adorable little mutts you could ever hope to see. I got to see most of them be born. When the puppies were around 7 or 8 months old, they escaped out make-shift fence to chase some rabbits or squirrels. The mother and her two boys never came back. Her daughter, my little Luna, came back with some injuries. We had to keep her inside, separated from her sister for a few weeks to watch for signs of rabies. Not long after it was safe to let them be together again, he chained them up in the yard while we left the house for awhile. When mom came home from dropping me off somewhere, they were gone. We never found them before we had to move, and I've never seen them again.

I dreamed about them often for years after that, and I still miss them often. As we speak I'm getting tears in my eyes. I miss them. I didn't even get to see their first birthday, and I have no idea if they were found by anybody and able to live happy healthy lives or not.
