Missing Pup
Thursday, December 18, 2014 41 Comments Images

I am sitting here writing this post, ready to go to bed with the biggest feeling of relief ever! My little Nash (our dog) was missing for the past couple hours and I was in tears stressed out of my mind.   He had just got his shots today and was acting funny all day long.  I could tell he was down in the dumps and just did not feel good.  Brody and I were packing and getting ready to go out of town in the morning when we noticed we hadn't seen Nash in a few hours.  We began to call his name,  did the classic ring the door bell, and even got out his favorite treats.  He would normally always come rushing out from wherever he is to immediately to see us.  We waited and waited and honestly heard nothing and that's when my stomach dropped.  He began looking under all the beds, couches and whatever else and finally moved onto outside.  By this time I was in tears and trying to think in my head how in the world we would tell Hanes that Nash was missing.  Brody ran all around the neighborhood and started to drive further outside the neighborhood just in case. I know this may sound cheesy but I said a quick little prayer and continued to cry and stress out.  Nash has been our dog for 4 years now and as much as he drives me crazy sometimes I really do love him so much, and he is Hanes' absolute best friend.  For some reason I had this feeling to go quietly check one more time in Hanes' room (he was asleep), and still nothing.  I searched his closet, basket, teepee, under his bed....and then suddenly I see these little eyes shining all the way up in the box springs of Hanes' bed.  He must have just been really sad about his shots earlier that day and needed to be alone, which is so bizarre becuase that is not at all like Nash. I started crying even harder when I found him and immediately yelled for Brody.  This may sound silly and ridiculous because he is just a dog but suprisingly enough he has a huge spot in our hearts.  I am just relieved I don't have to explain that Nash went missing to Hanes or always wonder where he was. Anyway I know this is a way random post but it was all that I could think about when I sat down to write my daily post to you guys!
I hope you guys have an awesome Thursday and get ready for the crazy weekend ahead! This jacket in today's post is from Francesca's and has been a go-to quite often lately in my closet and not just because it's super cute but because of how incredibly comfy it is.  I mean it's hard to beat a comfy, warm, and cute coat right?

  5. Not silly at all! I can't even imagine how much I would freak out if my big blonde dog went missing. She's my girl, and I love her so much. Glad the little pup was just sleeping off the meds! Looking gorgeous as usual Cara!

  6. Love the jacket! You look great xo


  7. I'm so glad you were able to find Nash! Very nice coat too

  8. That is honestly the worst feeling in life! I am so glad you ended up finding him, what a relief...

  9. In my book, there is no such thing as "just a dog", so I'm so happy you found this precious little furry one who loves you so much!

  10. I'm so glad you found him! Not silly at all. They become a big part of your family! Have a great trip! I LOVE those sunnies.

  11. So glad y'all found your pup!! What a scary thing. They are like members of the family for sure!

  12. Waittttt. Did you go for the haircut?!! And this is totally what I was talking about. Love reading little stories like this! And hello, you even have the cutest name for your dog. love it. xoxo, Christine

  13. My shitzu, Lunchbox, always finds a way to escape our yard! Luckily all my neighbors know/love her so I always have gotten her back. One time she made it all the way to doggie jail and mom had to bail her out. She was pretty ashamed of herself.

  14. Aww I'm so glad you found him!! Pets just have a special place in your heart and when something goes wrong or they go missing it's absolutely stressful!


  15. I'm glad you found your dog. Losing a pet can be so scary.
    On a happier note your look is very cute. I love the way your hair is curled and tucked into the coat.


  16. Poor pup. That is terrible. DId you give him all of his shots in the same day? Not sure whether you know, or want the advice--- but i've heard of several dogs who have gotten sick after getting all of their shots in the same day. Even my bullmastiff (who is like 100 lbs) was sick. My grandpa's pug actually ended up dying. I'm sure this info probably doesn't make you feel any better after that incident, but I thought you should know for future reference.

  17. Love the coat&&shoes. Your hair looks super cute tucked into your coat!


  18. Love this post, made me cry :-) I'm glad that he wasn't missing.

  19. cara I'm loving your short hair!! it's so fresh and fun! love the ootd girlie!

    xoxo hails.

  20. I'm so glad that you found your pup! Poor little guy :( I love how you tucked your hair! Such a cute length!

  21. glad you found your pup! :( that's so scary and has definitely happened to me before! so nervewracking even if it's just for a few hours

  22. I can totally relate. Not silly at all. I would go crazy if my little furry one would go missing. So glad & relieved you found him safe at home. Take care.

    And by the way, always look great.

  23. Cara,

    I love your new hair color. So gorgeous! Happy holidays


  24. Aweee! I'm so happy he was okay and didn't end up lost outside. Glad to hear everythings okay :)
    XO Janina

  25. I'm so glad you found him, my heart would have broken for you. Puppies become just like your children, and you can't imagine your life without them. Looking gorg as always :)


  26. Not ridiculous at all! Our two pups are my babies and words cannot express how upset I get when they're hurt, let alone if they went missing! I honestly think that dog owners who don't feel that love have no business being dog owners. Happy Holidays and I'm glad it worked out! <3

  27. I totally understand! I'm so glad you found him!! Losing an animal and always wondering what happened to them is the worst. My cat did that to use a few months ago and we found him under the bed too.

  28. so glad you were able to find him! you feel so panicked when you realize you don't know where they are huh? merry christmas!

    xo, k

  29. Great look! Love the coat!

  30. Once my dog got out the door and shot off down the road, we luckily got him back but It was the most stressful 5 minutes ever! I tell you, you are NOT ridiculous at all for loving your dog! I love it when people love their animals as if they were family, people that get a dog only do ditch it a while later just break my heart!! Love your outfit by the way :)


  31. I love that jacket so much! This post isn't silly at all. Animals are a member of the family! I'm glad he was found and that he is okay!


  32. It's so stylish! Love your look!
