Luger is Lost
Luger is one of our Wednesday Walking Crew. He was also believed to be the father of my beloved Caleb, and was seized at the same time as Caleb from their abusive owner. At that time, he had a broken leg that was left untreated and dangled uselessly. The SPCA had the leg amputated and Luger was first fostered, then adopted by Karen. He is a sweet boy who adores his mom and keeps his eye on her all the time - except today.
Today Karen, Luger and friends were hiking in Copper Canyon, near Chemainus, where they tried a new trail. It petered out and ended in very rough, steep terrain that sloped steeply down to the river below. When Karen blew her whistle for all the dogs to gather for a head count, Luger was missing.
We searched until dark tonight with no luck. Tomorrow a woman with a tracking dog will be coming to help search. To my readers in the North Cowichan area, if you are walking your dogs in the Mt. Sicker, Copper Canyon, or Grace Rd areas, please watch for him. And please spread the word to others who might be in this area.
Karen has posted a $1000 reward.
Luger, stay strong and stay safe. Let yourself be found.
Please send positive vibes, prayers, whatever anchors your faith.....we need Luger home.
