My Heart Is Broken

What in the crap is going on around here!?!

Why are my animals disappearing??

Shasta is gone.

The best dog in the world. I now can't remember any of his flaws. I don't remember that he was naughty, ran wild, got in to my garbage, and wagged his tail so hard it gave us bruises. He was the coolest dog and he hasn't come home.

Yesterday we locked the gate tight. I called Bo-Beana to let her know it was locked and she could let him out of the garage to play around. We came home, the gate was still locked, but something didn't feel right. I didn't say anything to the kids in the car with me though.

Later I asked Jedrick if he'd seen Shasta. He said no, but the gate was locked so he must be running around our place. I still didn't feel right.

Evening came and Jedrick comes to me crying. He told me something inside told him that Shasta is really gone this time. I felt sick inside because it is the same thing I felt. I relayed all of this to Stern that night and he said he had felt the same thing but didn't want to say anything.

I couldn't sleep all night. I just kept dreaming of every worse-case-scenario of where he might be.

Jedrick has been working so hard to train him and he was doing so good. Jed taught him to heel, sit/stay, and most of the time he was even obeying "come." Why now??

The chickens are one thing, but not our dog :(
