Kuchar escaped again

Post by LyndaW on Sat Feb 07, 2015 8:05 pm

Wednesday night, and I can only just talk about it because it triggered a mega-migraine which I am only just recovering from.

Long story short - One of my son's more brain-dead "friends" left the front door wide open and Kuchar made his successful bid for freedom. This "friend" immediately boogered off never to be seen again (I hope) but I, son, and several other friends gradually roped in spent about two hours searching for a mainly black dog in the dark. He WAS found eventually and captured (the little get was still hell-bent on pursuing his exploration of North Hampshire) in an area that he didn't know and I would never have thought of for looking in.

Can anyone recommend a soft, comfortable collar that he can wear in the house that can have an ID tag attached to it, so that if and when he does it again at least some kind soul finding him can a) catch him and b) phone us?

Kuchar you horrible monster!!!! Glad you found him!
My dogs wear Rogz collars. I know quite a few people that raved about the equifleece (spelling?) collars over the years.
They make harnesses as well and not to expesive if I remember. Google should help you.

Oh, dear! sad I hope your head is okay! hug And I'm glad you managed to find him!

What about a large puppy collar? They usually have the little plastic safety mechanisms, so that there's little risk of strangulation if it gets caught.

Oh dear, Lynda, he's determined to give you a heart attack!

Shelley Stanley (I think that's the name) makes collars & I think they're quite soft and inexpensive. You could leave it on until bedtime?

Kuchar is, in most ways, the almost perfect dog. Except, as Theresa says, he's a horrible monster when he gets a whiff and a chance of "freedom"; doesn't care about his nearest and dearest and is such a tart he'll go off with anyone. He's got no road-sense either, which is an additional worry when he goes walk (run) - about. I have never known such a bonkers dog.

Thank you all for your suggestions - I've never liked the idea of a dog having a collar in the house but I have to consider it. I think I'll try Eleanor's suggestion about a large-size puppy collar -off at bedtime and on again in the morning.

And yes, thank you, I'm almost better! Anyone who thinks that a migraine is just a bad headache don't know the quarter of it.

Oh dear god! Kuchar! shocked
I felt my stomach drop... thank god you got him! hug
can you deadlock your door so the kids cant open it without a key?
I use "prestige" collars. You may remember the one I sent to Theresa.  They are padded inside, nylon on the outer. Quite soft & comfy for long term wear. Not an overly cheap collar but very good. I believe they post o/s., but I'm not sure.

Ask Theresa how she has found it.

I'm so glad he is home safe. XXX

As for a migraine... I've only hsd a few but... Don't speak, don't bring in daylight or I will vomit... literally.  They are awful!

Poor you, Lynda, I've never had a migraine and I hope I never do! I know it isn't a case of just taking a couple of tablets & 'getting over it'.

I hope it's completely gone now?

The Prestige collar is fabulous. Nice and soft inside but tough enough that you could walk a pulling, yanking dog.

I get infrequent migraines. I think being shot probably hurts less.

You've all been so kind - thank you so much.

Ref the front door (Tracy) they are not kids and fully old enough to know better. I was actually getting the car out to give that "person" a lift home when he saw fit to open the front door and stand and wait. He's in his 30s and got Staffies himself! Both of which have attacked Kuchar. I hope I never see him again. A mistake, stupid as it was, can be forgiven but sodding off into the night without helping is not.

The pain of a migraine isn't the worst of it as far as my own experience has been, although it does hurt. I'll discuss this elsewhere if anyone is interested.

I'll look properly at the links and suggestions you have all so kindly given as soon as I am functioning properly again.

Thank you all so very, very much crap still

I'd love to wring his neck for endangering somebody's dog like that! Especially the lovely Kuchar! I can't imagine why he would think it was alright to then bugger off and leave you to pick up the pieces. straight face

hug Of course people are interested! Discuss it wherever you want! happy I hope you feel better soon hug

I don't understand how he left before Kuchar was found. I would have felt soooo bad I'd of been searching for him till he was found...however long it took.

Mum gets migranes & they can knock you around for days. Hope your over it soon. hug

You are all so sweet kiss kiss

Still feeling fragile, not helped by a certain domestic situation that has blown up over the weekend.

I've had migraines since my early 30s, but I've known when they're coming on cos I got "the aura" - blind spots, flashing lights etc, plus a slacking off in my mental faculties and speech. The following headache wasn't so bad. But this time I was doing a crossword with my old Mum and we'd done most of it, when suddenly all the answers changed before my very eyes, and the clues changed too! It was very, very frightening - I tried remembering what year it is, who is prime minister etc with no luck at all. Fortunately my mum knew what it was but I thought the world, or probably me, had gone mad. I'm seeing my doctor about it next week just in case there is anything new that can help.

Thank you all so much for your care and concern - I expect I'll be back on Planet Normal soon!

what about a Polar half check collar , nice and fleecy and comfy and as its half check then not snug round his neck , I use them on my 2 now but only when they are out as they are homebirds so wouldnt run off . Only downside is Tilly has reversed out of hers a couple of times when I've been off guard

Oh, Lynda, you've had a rotten few days! I really hope you're feeling a little better now, and the 'domestic situation ' isn't too serious.

Good luck with the doctors next week!

You know I very rarely get a true migrane but can I ask this?.... Hope I can explain this properly....

I get a "water worm" as i call it... in my vision. Shaped exactly as a squiggly earth worm but as if it is made of water you are looking through. All vision around it is perfect, or sometimes spots like when you rub your eyes hard & open them to see spots.

Then I know I have to find a dark & quite room as my temples & forehead are about to beat harder than my heart as the both try to get away via the back of my head.

How are you doing Lynda? hug

Tracy, fun fact: the squiggly things you're seeing are often your own white blood cells wiggling their way through the capillaries on your retinas! happy It's called a blue field entoptic phenomenon. There's another entoptic phenomenon, similar to this, called 'floaters', which you see when the vitreous in your eyes breaks away.
