Yeah, no joy in Mudville.

I really appreciate you folks giving it a go though. I won't be harping on this any more but keep it in mind if you're in that area.

And please mention it to anyone you know that's down there.

Randy

If you are planning on riding this weekend, and I hope you are because it should be pretty nice, I would appreciate it so much if any of you can make it to the roads surrounding my sister's Red Hill Road address, south of Charlottesville, and be on the lookout for this big lovable dog that we are so desperate to find.

I'm very much afraid that he has been killed by hunters, either accidentally or on purpose, or worse he has just been taken by someone who thinks it would be cool to steal a 100# pit mix.

I can be reached at 434-409-4100. The owners of the dog are Jack and Hillary Horn, #'s (434)-979-5788, (434) 531-3703 or (434)-981-4333.

He disappeared from Red Hill Rd near 20, between Walton Middle School and the KOA. Leo was last seen Sunday morning, 12/2 around 10 am. Reports have said he might have been seen as far away as Walnut Creek and Plank Rd. He should be wearing a black leather collar with skull and crossbones I think. He's super sweet, but shy and likely a little panicked but hard to miss a 4' tall mostly white st. bernard/pit mix.

I'll personally offer a $100 reward and I can't tell you how much it would mean to this family to find this dog.

If you have any time to do so, please look for this dude for me and his family. And if you happen to know anyone in this area, please spread the word.

Peace,
Not a very happyfunguy.

Thank you so much. I'm sure they saw my flyers all over the place.

I PMed randy yesterday. I saw a white dog with a spotted eye on the down town mall on a leash with a tweeker near the ice rink. The dog looked smaller. But I just caught sight of it twice. If anybody is down that way.

Posted by my brother-in-law on fb a few minutes ago:

"RIP Leo. We found him near the house dead. He had been shot three times. Thanks for all the prayers and good wishes. He was a good dog and didn't deserve to die that way.
What is wrong with this world?"

They guess he was probably there all week. Days like these really make you wonder don't they...


Thanks for the support everyone.

So sorry to hear that Randy...

Were the police informed? Was he found on a neighbors property or Park Property?

Damn man that sucks...

Thanks guys, there is a small bit of light.

Animal Control just left and said they don't think he was shot after all. So although we still don't know what happened, I don't have details of his injuries, at least there's a possibility that someone didn't intentionally kill him. That's hope, right?

I don't know when I cried last and I sure wouldn't usually admit it in public, but I have over this and I'm just beat up. And how I feel is nothing to how they feel on Red Hill Road tonight. And how they feel is nothing compared to how they feel in parts of CT tonight.

Several times while I was searching for him I hoped I'd find him dead, just so we'd know he wasn't being mistreated or something. This isn't much better, but it's better.

My nephew posted "FUCK THIS WORLD" and you can't blame him much.

Thanks again for the effort and support. I am feeling motherfuckin' beat up but it's good that you understand.

Sorry for the downer. Let's ride.
