12 days of Missing Myrtle

It's been 12 days. I didn't think I would need these stickers I ordered, thought - by the time they got here Myrtle would be home safe. I hate to be wrong, especially this time.

I can't stand her not being here. This week was tough, and there have been some things that have happened that I don't want to talk about, I only want to ask – how can people take pleasure in seeing someone suffer? My heart is so far from that, that it just shakes me to my core.

I love this photo. You can't tell, but her tail was mid-furious-wag.

I think it's time to focus on Long Island City and Queens (we got a reliable call that she was seen crossing a bridge to Queens the night she went missing). With the help of a friend, I'm working on a Saturday morning search party/flier posting party. If you want to help, please log on to Facebook and comment here. The details will be shared to a smaller private group.

Note: The lot Myrtle was last spotted in seems to be some kind of parking for buses – I wonder if a trucker/driver found her in the lot and took her out of the area? Out of NY completely?

Just a big thank you to Animal Haven, ABC channel 7, Newsweek, Alyssa Milano! (crazy, right), and my friends. This is not getting easier, your love and support is appreciated and keeps me sane.


  1. Hang in there, D. There are also lots of good people in the world. I know she's out there and you'll find her.

  2. I am thinking of you and posted this everywhere I could. COME HOME MYRTLE!

  3. I was thinking that maybe she got picked up and relocated too. Maybe it's worth checking Connecticut/Jersey/Penn areas. My sister and brother-in-law are vets in CT and Westchester. They know about Myrtle just in case something pops up out there.

  4. A bus stop for buses to where? Oh, this news is so disheartening.

    Hang in there D. It's hard, I know. And people are jerks. That's why we love dogs. Don't pay any attention to jerks and weirdos. You have lots of love and great people behind you. Newsweek and Alyssa Milano???? See? That is crazy!


  5. ALWAYS thinking of you and Myrtle. I can only imagine how you feel. And for as many a-holes, there are that many good and kind-hearted folks. Myrtle will be back, just a matter of time <3

  6. Oh....I am so sorry you haven't found her yet. But, I am here to tell you that we found our little 8 pd dog years ago, after a long time. So, don't feel badly about time passing ( other than obviously missing her and worrying about her) No matter how much time has passed, you will still get her back. I feel it. I am wishing you well and if the search for Myrtle ever moves into Jersey, I will be here to help!
