|Three Retrievers Lost Pet Rescue
Tino searched for Shiloh in Arlington. It appears Shiloh is going under fences to avoid being followed. Tino and I had to go a long way around to resume the search each time Shiloh went under or through a fence. In one place, the gap between fences was narrow, but I thought I could fit. Tino went through before me. He had to squeeze his hips through. When I tried, there was no way I was going to be able to force myself through. Not because I’m fat, but apparently I’m wider than the width of Tino. I tried to get Tino back to me, and he wouldn’t come back through. I couldn’t figure out what to do. I would have a hard time climbing the six foot fence, as there was nowhere to get a toehold. I didn’t want to leave Tino tied there while I went the long way around. After what seemed like a very long time, but was probably only a few minutes, Tino decided that he could squeeze himself back through the gap. We searched for several hours. I had to stop when we hit a patch of forest marked Federal Property, No Trespassing. If it was just me, I would risk being arrested. I couldn’t put Tino at risk.
