So very sorry. Run free Little Cal.xx
David and Claire Wood
Thank you to all of you that looked for Cal, put up posters and posted on social media. Sadly, we received a call from the Port of London Authority on the 09th April to say that they had found Cal's body in the river. It was in quite a state of decomposition so it seems she had been dead for quite a while. We are devastated we are not going to get Cal back but pleased we have closure.

So sorry that Cal has gone to rainbow bridge. My sympathy to her family x
Georgy Porgy
So sad very sorry to read this news. Sending condolences to her family. X Can this be changed to rainbow bridge please?
I'm sharing again on FB & Twitter I can't believe Cal is still missing I feel for you both, but i'm sure theres still hope X
There is Sam and Loki http://www.lostdogtracker.com/ they are based on the suffolk/norfolk border.
So sorry for the delay. I don’t know the person who had siting few days ago. He was on the neighbourhood post. I will reshare on there. There is another tracker other than Jenny I am sure, I will try and find their details.
David and Claire Wood
Hello Mary, no Jenny has not got back to me - I have an acknowledgement email, but that is it. Yes, we are checking regularly where she was last seen - indeed I am going there this afternoon.
Has Jenny K9tracker.co.uk been in touch with you. How far from home is Cal? Are you regularly checking back where she went missing from. What your looking for now is her safe area so that you can set up a feeding station.
David and Claire Wood
Hello all, although we are resetting our expectations we are not losing hope. We have put posters out in the sighting areas. We are continuing the search.

Thank you for your help
David and Claire Wood it is not wise to call Cal as she is now in likely to be in survival mode. Best for anyone spotting her to turn sideways on and if possible crouch down and not make eye contact and call the numbers listed. If you have treats with you and throw them on the floor, near her, she may come towards you but if you attempt to catch her and fail she will become more scared. If she runs of try to keep her in sight but do not chase. She is most likely to move at dusk and dawn and they often return to where they went missing from. Last edited: 2018-03-18 16:59:33 by Mary
I am sure posters are up in various locations but as a suggestion drop some of at local schools and colleges, contact local taxi firms and put some in post boxes for postmen to take back to the sorting offices.
David and Claire Wood
Hello Tina, I have had people contact me in the area and wonder if you know the person who had the sighting?

Would be great to see if there is any further information as we have been down there without successfully

Many thanks
David and Claire Wood
Hello everyone, we have checked and no sign of her.

If anyone does get a sight, if you call her name she will respond.

Thanks again
Possibly heading back to Old Deer Park. Usually travel in a triangle. She may have been sleeping in Kew Gardens as would find shelter and feel safe there.
Sandra and Murphy cat
Fingers crossed it’s Cal. Good luck!
David and Claire Wood
We are heading over there now, just seen this.
Another possible sighting this morning. Someone on neighbour hood page said they “saw it today @ 7:30 am in the Kew Riverside Development. She was heading towards the river path.” Owners aware. Shared on Fb

Thank you for your continued support on this. Although Esher is a distance away from Richmond, we will certainly follow up on the lead.Last edited: 2018-03-17 17:10:48 by David and Claire Wood
The two locations are about 8 miles apart, would only be likely if it was towards her home, unless of course she was picked up. It will be busy at Twickenham with the Rugby so unlikely to make an appearance. It would be worth handing out posters to the street cleaners as she may look for scraps.
Julie Twickers
Will tweet to Richmond folk and hope he is found soon. Presume the Golf Club has been alerted too? I doubt very much if the sighting in Esher is Cal as that is miles away and he would have had to have been transported and left there.
Don't mean to get your hopes up, but I saw a dog very similar to this walking along More Ln in Esher on Friday morning. It had no collar, and looked in quite a state. Two teachers from Esher CofE High School (I think...) took it with them to work. Might be worth phoning the school on Monday.
David and Claire Wood
thank you, just contacted her
Have you considered contacting Jenny Tiga Brown with her wonderful tracker dogs? www.k9tracker.co.uk. Even if she is unable to come along, as she is so much in demand, she can give expert advice to help find Cal.
Ask these guys and girls for help - they’re experts http://www.fellandmoorlandwtceastmids.com/rescues.htm
David and Claire Wood
Hello everyone, still no sight of her I am afraid. We have been doing lots of digging around fox/rabbit holes, but no sign of her. We have even put down cameras to no avail. Will keep trying

I have shared with DL FB Group, Twitter & Public. I hope that Cal is safely back at home soon.X

David and Claire. If you take a piece of hose with you and put down any rabbit or fox holes near where Cal was last seen and listen and call softly to see if there is any response. They sometimes go quiet but may respond to a familiar voice. You can also get a snake camera and put it down to look. As she gets thinner she may wriggle free so leaving something with yours or her scent on and some bedding to settle with at home and where you were parked will help.
Posted to Twitter and FB, really hope that helps. Stay safe little one until found xx
David and Claire Wood
Thank you all for your help. We are currently deeply concerned that she may have gone down a fox hole and got stuck. Does anyone have any experience/advice on this?

If Cal is near home she may try to make her way home, if you went by car she may return to where you parked the car. They Usually move in the dark when no one is about. If by car and you are able to return and sit patiently she may make an appearance. If near home and you walked make sure she can get back into the garden and leave some bedding in a sheltered place for her to settle with.
