Dog's body found in Bracebridge

Shauna's precious dog has been found on the date of his 5th birthday.
He did drown, as she suspected. We can all have a moment to grieve for lost pets. Bless them all!

 This is Shauna's update. I told you I would let you know when I did. At least now she can begin to grieve.
"It is Sarge's 5th birthday today. And this morning his body was found. Sargie's birthday gift to me.
Thank you to all of you who held me up these past few months with your words of empathy, and encouragement, and stories of your own furry children loved and lost.
Thank you to all of you that came up to Bracebridge and comforted me and fed me.
Thank you to those that joined in the physical search in the woods, on the water, at the cottages & towns.
Thank you to those, from their own home, with their children and pets nearby, who made phone calls, and wrote letters, and sent out posters, never giving up hope that he would be found. And he was found, thanks to all of you.
Thank you for checking in with me, to make sure I was alright. Thank you for keeping me company. Thank you for keeping us in your hearts. I love you all very much.
He was found in the water by some boatmen, brought to Cathy's Corner, and is being picked up by Dave, my Mohawk Warrior. He is on his way to Bracebridge to be cremated. He will be picked up, brought back to Toronto, and kept safe until I return in May. Thank you, thank you...I don't know what I would have done without you.
Still no word, Jan. 31, 2012
Posting for a friend – Jan 11th, still no word. Our thoughts are with Shauna.
AT 1 PM, Friday, Jan. 6th, SHAUNA BLACK'S ENGLISH BULLDOG, "SARGE", WENT MISSING OFF THE PENINSULA OF CRYSTAL LAKE, NEAR BRACEBRIDGE... 70 lbs, very very friendly, doesn't know area at all, can't swim. No collar, but is microchipped.

So sad, and so sorry. Very difficult to lose a family friend like that...

So sad, Jenn, but so glad there is no more worry, no more looking. Sarge was obviously a much-loved dog. Now Shauna can mourn properly but put the worry behind her.
Thanks for letting us know.
