Hi to all
Very stressed back here in the UK having received a call from my partner saying that MERCKX our 5 year old Black Labrador ran off from him this morning in the area of Mortier / Limort which is close to Clussais La Pommeraie. He followed a female looking Chasse type dog (the brown and whitish ones) who was obviously on heat. This was at 10am this morning Sunday 29th April.
We have contacted the Hope Association and will speak to the Mairie as soon as possible but it is now shut until 4th May (holidays??)
I have emailed and contacted all our friends nearby to be on the look out and we have produced a poster with Merckx's photo and phone numbers on it to be delivered to all the houses and farms.
He is a very large Labrador with a red collar and friendly. His dog tags have our french address and telephone numbers thereon. He is also chipped.
I can appreciate now how upsetting this is (now that I am in a similar position) when I read about other peoples plights.
Please be on the look out around Marie Levescault, L' Orangerie, Bellevue, Clussais, Pommeraie, Limort as these are all places Merckx goes on his walks.
Stuarts french home no is 549273870 and his English mobile no. is 0044 7884260786 (not a great signal). Mine in the UK is 0044 2392 570864 / 0044 788 1827024
Thanks for looking and reading - fingers crossed
Sarah and Stuart
