Hi Michelle after my phone call were you able to check out dog found as per radio station pirate fm?
HelperSpringerMad
Any news on whether this is Oscar?
DogLost VolunteerClaire Weston Turville
Have made michelle aware of latest comment re found dog. She was unaware but will check out. Thank you.Last edited: 2014-12-10 20:44:16 by Claire Weston Turville

Fingers crossed

There is a dog matching Oscars description found on 29th November 2014 on the pirate fm website. Go to their help desk and that will take you to lost and found pets. he has 3 spots on face that match Oscars description. Good luck.
Esther
He probably has loads of rabbits still to catch and will move back to the bins when the weather changes a bit, he will be easier to spot again then.
Michelleand Jon
Nothing of late to report :(
duffs54
So many people rooting for you and Oscars safe return,fingers crossed so much I can't typexxx
Esther
Yes. You will.
Michelleand Jon
Went out walking and searching over the moorland but no sign of him. Even went to the area of moorland where we use to live (where Oscar went missing from) as its really not that far from the sighting but had no joy :( As always will be out and about looking cos I WILL find my boy eventually.
Esther
Hooray ! Come on Oscar
DogLostJayne - Head Office
Bumped due to sighting.
Michelleand Jon
We have had another possible sighting today just after 2pm between Highertown and watergate near Roughtor. I have been out but not seen him at all. This is the second time we have had a possible sighting in this place. You were right Esther xx
Esther
I am sure he will be sighted again before long, he is one very clever dog.
Michelleand Jon
Nothing of late but I have a feeling he'll make his way back to Delabole if he has taken himself off for a wonder.
Esther
Any sightings of late ?

Possible sighting 2 hours ago of Oscar by the old dentist in Camelford.
Michelleand Jon
Went for a wonder about the area but didn't see anything of him. Tregreenwell is not far from Delabole so could have quite possibly been him. Bin bags were scavenged in Delabole agan this morning too.

Sounds very promising fingers tightly crossed xxx

possible Oscar sighting 5am this morning at Delabole quarry. Bumping x
Michelleand Jon
Had a call from a holiday maker yesterday. He saw a spaniel between Hightertown and Watergate near the phone box (just off Roughtor Road) that may be our boy but he couldn't give me a proper description. He went back to see if he could get a photo but the dog had gone. Oscar has been spotted on Roughtor Road before so he may have moved up towards the moors for a little while which would explain why there has been no sightings of him around Delabole of late. If anyone is walking the Moors in the Roughtor area could you please, please keep your eyes peeled. xx

Any news of late
Ellie
Hi
Please read Rayded's comment on Dogs Reunited Poppy No.66926 It is very good advice and has clearly worked because Poppy is now safe and well in the blue.Wishing you all the luck in the world with finding Oscar. I regularly look him up but am too far to help out physically!
Michelleand Jon
None yet but I'm still hopeful

Any more news on Oscar xx

Hoping that he is now getting closer to being back home.
Come on Oscar.

Can you put a feeding station at friends house...end of the trail?
DogLost Volunteerjenny4
Its great news hes about again and also good he doesnt hide from people.......bin day today isnt it?Hope he gets home soon.....sadly can only watch from afar but you are always on my mind and do keep looking for him to go into the blue xx
Michelleand Jon
I'm out there as much as possible. Doing a scent trail again up to friends house. Also try to set up a feeding station but that maybe a bit tricky as the area is walked alot by dog walkers.
DogLost VolunteerMoogie
Wonderful to hear he's been spotted again. What's your next move Michelle?
Michelleand Jon
Oscar has been spotted again today down in Delabole woods. He ran passed a group of teenagers into the field and hopped over the wall into another field. Pauline´╗┐ also saw him but was too far away to follow him. Thank you Tanya for calling to let me know and showing where you saw him. Unfortunately Jan´╗┐ and I didn't see him on our travels.
Jenny & Tiga
It might be worth checking with the quarry to see if they have the cctv installed yet and up and running. When we were down tracking after Christmas they were in the process of having it installed. When Tiga tracked down Medrose Street and behind the fish & chip shop I looked everywhere for cctv but there was not any. We tried a trap but with so many cats around we were constantly getting cats out of the trap only for them to go back in! So pleased to see that he is still in the area, it is only a matter of time and patience that the perseverance from Michelle and Pauline will pay off.
Phoebe
OMG
duffs54
So pleased he has shown himself again I really hope he will be back home asap.xxxx

Like Ellie said are any of these places covered by cctv, maybe where the chip shop is located, some cameras are not always on the outside of the shops but upstairs in the flats above. I don't know the areas as I am miles away but any little thing might help.

Sorry to keep harping on about this but if he was seen at the filling station then would it be possible that they would have a cctv? Most of them do, and it might give you some indication on the direction that he went.
DogLost VolunteerMoogie
Bumping due to sighting
Jonathan
When I looked with you last month this sighting just confirms that Thursday is bin day and when he seems to be seen most. This must be very frustrating for you. You really need someone or a couple of people to put a webcam in their window pointing along Medrose St and /or the main road if only to just confirm all the sightings and the direction he heads off in. I am not sure what the best webcam setup would be but perhaps someone with the technical knowledge can help here and suggest the simplest and cheapest system to use to get the best chance of a picture. Good luck and I am sure you will succeed just by your fierce determination eventually.
Michelleand Jon
He was spotted last night by the filing station on the main road heading towards the chip shop at 10.10pm. After no sightings for the last 4 weeks we were worried that he had changed are. Come on boy show yourself to me.
Esther
Going by the number of young rabbits we have around now maybe Oscar is now off chasing them
Esther
I am sure he will be ok, he has been so clever so far
Michelleand Jon
Coming up 3 weeks without a sighting :( Come on boy show yourself to let me know your ok after the big storm.

Come on Oscar... where are you???

Would it be poss to do a regular bbq perhaps every weekend now that the weather is better? Right in the middle of where he gets spotted. Surely he would turn up when he's hungry!
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Hi Ellie, Bbq's have been tried ever since he went missing at various times when we have had sightings etc.
Come on Oscar boy, We want you home for your birthday.x
Ellie
Not sure whether you've done this before as I live in Oxfordshire and tend to look in when I'm on the site, but would it be poss to get a bbq going amongst these places that you have mentioned. Right smack in the middle of them so that the smell could lure him in. Even if it's scraps from the butchers or cheap lights, anything that will give off a strong aroma. No matter how bad the smell, the stronger the better!
Michelleand Jon
He disppeared again by the time we got there. But we did bump into the lovely young lad who saw him. He said he was looking at his poster when he walked behind him, looked at the poster looked at him, looked at the poster again then followed him up Medrose where he was weaving in and out of cars but then lost him. He confirmed his markings and said he had twigs and moss on his coat and was limping a little. I was surprised he was seen as it had been foggy all day over the most of Cornwall but it must have lifted in Delabole for a little while before it come back in again. Today is foggy too The young lad was lovely he was saying he had a dog go missing for 2 years and was feral when he got him back but brought him around. He is going to get his friends to put our numbers in their phones incase any of them see him.
No-one has got CCTV in the area I have already asked. There are so may places he could be hiding. I walk that footpath that is at the bottom of Medrose is goes all around the quarry and leads off into so many different parts, you can even get to Pengelly and Cemetery lane from there. Also there are lots of dis-used buildings he could be bunking up in. I think it is definitely a case of been there at the right time and right place.
duffs54
I'm miles away too but check in on my watched dogs twice day for any news and am always pleased to see that Oscar has new postings to read hoping it will be the one that has a a big found next to it. Hoping it could be any day soon xxx
Esther
Interesting thought Ellie, it might just help.
NickyJ
He must have a hiding place nearby, looking on StreetView maybe he comes up Medrose St from the footpath at the far end, and beyond that is open ground? Also, further across from there is an air-dried meat charcuterie, do you think he visits there, drawn by the smell and possibly scraps?
Or, is there possibly any where off of Medrose St he can be hiding? Any over grown gardens, empty houses or sheds?Last edited: 2014-03-13 22:50:21 by NickyJ
Ellie
Oh,how frustrating! He really is a Houdini! I know it might sound drastic but would there be a chance of seeing if he was on a CCTV camera?Not sure whether that would be possible but perhaps worth a try. Last edited: 2014-03-13 22:40:25 by Ellie

I am not going to explain too much the reasons behind removed posts . If they are negative and not in the true spirit of this site they will be removed.removed. Thats it !

Loosing a dog is painful enough without having to read the dribble of those who have no idea but seem to like to voice their opinions.
Now lets get back on track with what we all do best -help and support owners with all these missing dogs.

Thanks
Phoebe
I read zeta's comments before they were removed but could not see anything that was so wrong and upsetting about them. Lots of a very nasty remarks followed for some reason.
Jonathan
I am staying in Trebarwith Strand on Wednesday night so will be able to walk the area Wednesday PM and Thursday AM before heading back to Buckinghamshire. Do I call the numbers on the doglost page if anyone wants to meet me?.
Janine
Oscar is getting closer to being found every day,nice to see so many positive people willing him to be found
DogLost VolunteerMoogie
More positive news. Come on Oscar!!
silver
Have been following Oscar's story for some time now and am willing him to come home. Was staying in Boscastle last weekend so on my way back (slight detour South) visited Delabole (Medrose Street etc)and took a walk along footpath at end. Saw nothing, but lots of posters and met some people in a local garage when filling up and everyone knew about Oscar and recent sitings.

Jonathan met you during search for Tripp.

Zeta perhaps reading comments will make you change your view on lost dogs and people's devotion to finding their beloved pet. You need to understand dog behaviour and the fact they will go feral. This is a great site and everyone is so friendly/supportive so we don't need negative comments.

Come on Oscar!!

DogLost VolunteerClaire Weston Turville
Great news on latest sighting. With your patience and dedication to getting Oscar home will be repaid when he is finally lying on your sofa just catching up with good old home comforts. Good luck xx
Shelagh Savage
Oh that is great news, come on Oscar,you're missed so much and so many people willing you to be re-united

Sounds promising. Come on Oscar. Paws, and fingers xd.
DogLostMax, Area Co-ordinator, Cornwall
I am a bit too far away to be 'on the scene', but am there in spirit. We all wish Team Oscar the very best of luck, it won't be long now.
Keep the faith & ignore any negativity.
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Bumping, Jan's just had a phone call to say possible sighting by postbox by Lugg's garage in Delabole, if anyone is available to go and look(please do not chase or try and catch) if you need advice please call Michelle on the number above or me if you can't get hold of Michelle.
Michelleand Jon
Awww thanks Jonathan that's really kind of you. But are you sure? Liskeard and Delabole are about 27 miles away from each other. The bin bags get put out on Wednesday for collection Thursday morning. If you do decide to stay there I'm sure one of team Oscar can show you around the area :)
janiejewel1649
Michelleand Jon. Well said. Emma. Sorry to hear about your puppy, but remember he/she will always be around you in spirit. Also , one day you will be reunited with her/him, when the time is right. As for these negative idiots who post nast things on the internet are really not worth your blood pressure.
Jonathan
I have to go to Liskeard for work in a couple of weeks time. Its an overnight trip because of the distance and I was therefore thinking that after my site visits I would stay near Delabole. I could then walk all the local footpaths in the evening. It appears to me that Oscar might be appearing when the household rubbish is put out for collection. If that is the case then what evenings are the rubbish bags put out in Delabole and I will arrange my trip to suit. I have three Springers and I would be distraught if I lost any of them so I am happy to help.
Michelleand Jon
I have got to laugh at you Zeta. I didn't see your last lot of posts but from the other comments it sounds like they were not good and very negative. Well all I can say is that it's you that looks STUPID, an IDIOT trying to get a raise out of people. I've had a lot worse comment from people who at least have the guts to say it to my face. Now run along dear and find another hobbie. Hahahahaha

Emma my number is the first one above if you ever want to have a chat when lowlifes are getting you down, I'll pick you up with positivity. Remember they are all big and hard behind a computer and wouldn't dream of saying it to you in person. Hard work, determination, a good team and positive thinking will reunite us with our dogs. You see I maybe Oscar's human mum but he's now got a further 800+ adopted human aunties and uncles, our new family. Keep up your hard work and don't let these negative idiots get to you.
Michelle :D
Ellie
Come on Oscar time to get home now.Michelle and Jon are really missing you and want you home ASAP. Sending you positive vibes from Oxfordshire!
janiejewel1649
Hi Emma. I would not bother to worry about some people`s negativity. It is best to concewntrate on the positive. After all when we are unwell, we concentrate on improving dont we, not getting worse? Negativity does not help anyone on this site. Positivity is the key word on here.
Luby
Everyone following Oscar on this site are willing and praying he will finally be reunited with Michelle and John, and it's not for the want of trying both for them and the people who have seen him and tried to capture him. Pauline came sooo close. So I'm sure other members will agree that negative comments from Zeta are no help to anyone. I totally agree with another members comment that she/he is perhaps on the wrong site! Zeta should be blocked from the site for causing distress and anxiety to caring dog owners and helpers who are busting a gut to get Oscar home!! I'm sure lots of other members will be with me on this? Come on Oscar there's a nice warm bed waiting at home for you! Good Luck Michelle and John, hope he's soon in the BLUE!!
bazil
I joined doglost not long after Oscar went missing and have followed his story since then. Oscar's family have never given up and will not give up until they have their boy back home safe with them. Oscar has a fantastic team who are determined to get him home.
This is what doglost is all about... REUNITING owners with their pets.

Zeta I do not understand why you have joined doglost to come on and be so negative. You should be here to help and support.

During the past 3 years I have got to know and meet some fantastic people through doglost. We are all on here to support those who have their dog/dogs lost or stolen.... sometimes cats and humans too.

Come on Oscar.... we are all wanting to see you over in the 'Blue' so our celebrations can begin x
Emma Coole
Having lost our gorgeous puppy on new years day, I have experienced the pain on losing your much loved family member. We have also experienced horrible negativity, and down right nasty comments from internet sites. Remember as we have had too, there are far more people willing, hoping and checking everyday in hope that Oscar will be reunited with you as soon as possible! I can't wait to see him in the blue soon! Keep positive!
janiejewel1649
Poochpal. I have learned something today. Come on Oscar, your family really need you: please come home. All xd.
DogLostpoochpal- Regional Co-ordinator South West
Zeta, I think that your comments are being deleted because they ate quite negative. We are here to support the owners. It is unusual for a dog to survive this long without being caught but there have been many cases in the past, I believe a greyhound lived wild for over 10 years until suffering from arthritis. We had one locally who refused to be caught for 13 months, he would feed in a garden within a few feet of humans but not allow anyone close enough to touch him and refused to go into a trap no matter how tasty the bait!
A domestic dog very quickly moves into survival mode when separated from its humans and natural instincts take over. Oscar has spent most of his free time on the wilds of Bodmin Moor catching rabbits and living off carrion. I believe there was an outbreak of myxomatosis which is when hunger drove him to the area of the recent sightings but by this time he has developed the cunning of any feral animal.

agree with the other posts below. I have been following Oscar since day one over 3 years ago and not for one single second has Michelle and Jon and the loyal group of local searchers wavered in the search for their boy. They truly deserve to have him home where he belongs and I'm sure it is now just a matter of time and patience.xxx
Abe babe
Oscar's page is my daily dose of inspiration and hope for all those still out there. x
'Team Oscar', I think you need to write a book when he's home (I know a lovely publisher who specialises in doggy books, they found DL a while back when they lost their beloved Lurcher, so I bet they'd be interested!).
Esther
There are so many of us following Oscar from many miles away. I am sure I am not alone in my total admiration for Oscars owners, who have never given up, and to all the people who are actually there helping. Also Oscar himself, what an intelligent personality. Lot and lots of us are wishing you all well
ALI
Have been following Oscars story for sometime and I have to say the hard work and dedication of all the dog lost volunteers are an inspiration to those of us in East Sussex who are involved in the long elusive search for Misty the sheltie........well said in all the posts below and good luck in re-uniting Oscar very soon x
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Ah Spindle- we must have been posting at the same time! Spindle is the one who as i said below spent over a year tracking Moses who went missing shortly before Oscar. http://www.doglost.co.uk/dog-blog.php?dogId=27396
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Zeta,There are many dogs living wild in the uk, It does not take very long for a dog to revert to its natural ways- we humanize them too much and do not give them credibility for their very capable and natural instinct to survive- believing them to prefer a nice warm sofa and human company.
One of our friends and former co ordinators spent a year tracking and eventually capturing the elusive Moses. I will find you the link to read.
Due to the nature of the moors it has taken us this long to establish Oscars whereabouts as initially he kept moving. you really need to see it to believe it.It is so easy on the moor to be lost as a person- so easy when you have your nose to find your way and evade people as a dog.
I called Michelle when Oscar went missing to get her to put him on doglost-I have been every step of the way with Michelle(sometimes in person and always in spirit) since Oscar went missing and we have built up a strong network of friends and helpers - she is my best friend and one in a million - and this talk of it not being real and all of the negativity is very upsetting.
I have seen many of Michelles highs and lows, so many moments of excitement and exasperation,desperation and despair - some real tough times, there isnt a day goes by when she does not think about Oscar, We have tracked him all over Bodmin moor and the surrounding area- so many sightings in so many places- but he kept moving.Now we have a positive id of him from our friend Pauline- she was 18inches away before he got scared and ran off.
Our positivity and determination to get him home and safe for Michelle has made us all very close and we are gaining more friends and helpers all of the time. We Will get him home if it is humanly possible. He is very real- and so are the emotions that we all feel- Michelle and Jon most of all.Please join Oscars facebook group https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=201568339878730&fref=ts and read through- you will get a much better idea of whats going on out there.
Michelle,Jon, Pauline, Jan and all of the other local helpers there now- i wish you all love and luck - and i really wish i was there to help at the moment XXX
Spindle
Great post Michelle and Jon. Being so positive will get your boy home. Zeta, I cant imagine you have ever lost a dog and dealt with the sort of thing these owners have. Dogs switch from domestic to feral very quickly they have to when lost to survive. I was involved in tracking and eventually catching a dog living feral for 13 months he was seen every day for months. Like suggested maybe spend some time reading up on dogs psychology.
DogLostOwl
Well answered, everyone. Zeta has now made similar sarcastic comments on another dog's page, so we can assume that all logical explanation has gone in one ear and out the other. If there are any more such comments, don't bother to reply, just click on the Report button.

Me too, tears every time I come on here looking at the latest updates, recently we have had dogs reunited that have been lost for 5yrs, lets hope Oscar is happy with 3yrs and gets home soon xxx

I got a call at 10.45pm 05/03/14 with a message that got put on facebook.
There's a dog wondering delabole area just down from petrol garage, either black & white or brown and white ! Eating out of rubbish bags, we slowed down it was scared and looked like it was gunna run !!

3 of of went out but didn't see anything beside disturbed bin bags, It was very close to Medrose Street where a number of sightings have been before.

ZETA - Yes it is real, Oscar is my boy. Living on Bodmin moor you could not see another person for days nevermind seeing the same dog/pony/sheep so he could have quite easily have got about without anyone seeing him. It has only been the last few months that we have had definate sightings of him in Delabole. And yes he still has his beauty spots as my friend came within 18 inches of him but he was scared off and ran. She confirmed it was him beauty spots and all. Besides scavaging in bins, Oscar could survive easily as he can hunt rabbits (many a time he would bring one into the house) He would be scared of people now, just think on how many times he has been shoo'd out of someones garden, or chased off from rumaging in bins etc. At the end of the day dogs are wild animals it is just us that have domesticated them. As for the RSPCA come on really!! have you tried contacting them regarding a stray dog. And the dog warden's will only pick up dogs that have been caught. I'm glad to say that our dog warden knows of Oscar quiet well just in case he is ever found. I get alot of negativity from people, the usual comment being "It won't be him after this long, someone will have taken him in" BUT I'm a positive person and when I do get Oscar home, I'll be laughing at their negativity. I'd advise before you get shot down from other peoples comments, do a little research on feral dogs/cats etc.

Zeta , positivity is a great thing
Springer sharon
I'm keeping the faith and believing this is Oscar and so hoping he will be home soon....... What a party there will be then!
kl
There are many people hoping this dog gets home - dogs do roam around for long periods, they survive out in the wilderness, they learn to cope, they become increasingly aware of people, they may even bite, not all dogs love humans, they struggle to cope at times too, they are lost, bewildered and hungry - I hope all lost dogs find their owners, i hope there are lots of tears but mainly, i just hope! If you cant post anything other than negative or sarcastic comments on here Zeta maybe you are on the wrong website! C'mon Oscar - get yourself home where you belong and stop your wild antics!!! - keep looking people, you doing an amazing job

Pauline's getting so close. Hoping his paw heals fast and you can get even closer next time. Such good news that's he's still being spotted. Is the food been taken? Nothing on the camera I'm guessing?
Michelleand Jon
When Pauline came within 18 inches of catching him she said that he didn't have a collar on. His 3 beauty spots in a row are there and haven't changed. Even though she never saw him in the flesh before she has studied photo's and said if it's not him its his double

They are doing their best to do so, and he almost came to Pauline a little while ago but got spooked at the last minute. Everyone in Delabole knows about him and is looking out for him.
Ellie
What brilliant news, although sorry to hear about his limping. Would this be the time to try and catch him? Has it been tried before? Sorry if I've missed out, but have been watching and hoping for his safe return from afar!
DogLostOwl
Sighted 4 times yesterday, both on Medrose Street then later by Pauline who saw him behind the quarry fence not far from Medrose. He is limping, appears to have hurt his paw.

I've been away, but so pleased he is still being seen around the same area. I'm hoping the weather settles down now and he can get out and about more.

Another sighting on Medrose Street (Delabole) Yesterday, he was mooching about. 1st time on a weekend he's been spotted. Pauline was straight out but he gone by the time she got there. We went out searching and sat and watched the street but he was nowhere to be seen. Only just been able to update as still no landline or internet at home.

Been out looking last night and this morning before work but no joy. Pauline is out now.

Oscar is being seen really regularly now - our friend Pauline has seen him several times and did yesterday get within 18 inches of him before he got scared and ran off - bless her she was sat in the road coaxing him and he was coming until scared off i believe by a car honking its horn. Really wishing i could be there at the moment - feeling rather lost not being able to do anything from here.

Hi Michelle,

Following our conversation yesterday, I spoke to Mum this morning, she walked her dogs near to the old railway line yesterday afternoon and she saw a fairly fresh sheep carcass. It had been eaten by something but without going into details it hadn't been there long.
Good Luck! :)
DogLost VolunteerMoogie
How frustrating for you Michelle. We need this weather to calm down so he will be out and about more.
DogLost VolunteerClaire Weston Turville
In view of the awful weather coming through again tonight (if not already in your area) it may be that Oscar will stay "holed"up somewhere. Do please take care xx
Michelleand Jon
Went out searching for him yesterday but no joy. Set up camera and feeding station. Went out before dawn this morning to sit a watch for him but only thing I saw was a fox. Nothing on the camera. Did ask plenty of early morning dog walkers to keep a look out for him. Back out again after work.

I am so excited especially as all these sightings have been on 'tiga's route' owner has rushed there from work but her mobile has not got much charge. Please if anyone sees her do not chase or try to catch - it has to be a patient game, he has been in Delabole for so long now - he must not be moved on.

We have just found out there has been another sighting. Monday 11am by the church next to the chippy (Medrose Street) said looked like a skinny muddy farm dog and scared. They didn't call, even though they have seen the poster and thought it was him. Pauline has just been told of the sighting.
Will be out this evening from about 7ish to do bin watch
DogLost VolunteerMoogie
Very frustrating oscars not showing himself especially on the one dry day! I do hope he's ok after running in front of the car. Is this sighting in the same area?
Michelleand Jon
Been out cooking smelly food down at the quarry today to try to entice Oscar out but had not joy. Have read on a selling site on facebook that alady thinks she saw him run infron of her car at 1am on the main road by the fishings lakes.
DogLost VolunteerMoogie
Thank you to everyone who turned up to stakeout Oscar and support Michelle. It's been unfortunate with the weather as I'm sure he would have shown himself on a dry night.
Good idea to try to dare him out with the food. Heavily poster the area if it's not already. Good luck Michelle in the search. Let me know any other plans you might have
Seeks
Michelle I am sorry you didn't see him when you went back but I think the rain messed it up and he has more sense than to come out and get wet. I know now the places he comes up from so will get some posters and get over that way and on the way back sit out for a bit.

Will make the next one you do and will try and stay longer as that was such a clear night (before the rain) that yu could see into the carpark in the mirrors as well as up the street.

If you get some smelly food i can trog it around the quarry in the hopes he comes up to the bit you were in. Really hoped we would see something of him but the rain and maybe the cold didn't help. x
Michelleand Jon
Sorry guys no sightings of him last night or today up until 12.45pm even after the collections were made. (Had to leave then for work) Nothing on the camera and only a cat in the trap which I let out straight away. I would like to say a very special thank you to Jenny Tiga Brown, Pauline Godbold, Martin and Jan Brewer, Vanessa Lackford, Fergil's Servant and Fergil, Jan Everitt, Seeks & daughter. I am truly grateful for all your help. Also Thank you to my Jon for taking care of things at home and the people of Delabole for keeping their eyes open.
I think my next plan of attack will be cooking smelly foods all day and try to entice him out of hiding.

Hi Guys, anyone that is coming to help on the street watch tomorrow. The street we are wanting to watch is Medrose Street in Delabole and a couple of others that branch off. Medrose Street is the one that runs down the side of the chip shop. Michelle will be in the area most of the afternoon but will wait for any helpers in the bus shelter next to the chip shop from 5pm for 15 minutes or so. If anyone comes later they will be able to find her in a white Vauxhall Astra Van with Oscar's missing posters on the side. or call if you need to - mobile 07751 208298.

We have had another sighting. Jon and I have just come back from leafletting. I spoke with a man who said a brown and white springer cross was in his garden 2 days ago, then went off to double check with his mum. It was on Trelligga Downs Road which is the road that leads down the the Poldark Inn. Where the sighting on Tuesday was on Trebarwith Road which links up to the road that the Poldark Inn is on.

The springer in a that was in the ditch belonged to the house on the crossroads. I amanaged to get hold of the man who was trying to get him.
Michelleand Jon
Thanks Fergal but I checked the one out that got taken to Holts vets and it wasn't Oscar. Oscar isn't chipped :(
Seeks that is fantastic thank you so much.
HelperFergal's Servant
Michelle, I have been going through some older stories here. This was posted on 20th December 2012 (a year ago) on Paddington's page (at around the time one was found in Bodmin according to Oscars page - do you remember it? or did you check it out at the time? was it the same dog?)
"I don't know if this is nearby or not (I'm from Buckinghamshire..) but there was a found liverwhite male springer taken to Holts Vets in Camelford, Cornwall. It says not microchipped but it's possible it's one of the microchip batches that is faulty? Vets No 01840 212229."Last edited: 2013-12-21 23:20:40 by Fergal's Servant

Sorry Michelle we didn't see a thing, not even a fox (excluding of course the state of the sheep and ponies)

Went out through Blisland and over that way but ..... I think he is holed up somewhere he can stay dry.

It might be someone has taken him in... The lady who had Copper was not making it too well known. She was lovely but hadn't reported him at all....(It was pure chance that Jaqui saw that add) Thought he had been dumped from Plymouth so there is a chance he is with someone like that?

Promise I will do another late one and try to do it when the wind and rain have gone somewhere else.

You hang in there and I wish I was nearer so could sit out easier but I so hope you have him home soon x
Seeks
Max I so echo you it would be so good to get him home by Christmas.

Michelle tell me where to park in his area of sightings. We will do at least till midnight on the way back from postering for Pup and at the mo there is a good moon. Just give me his most likely places and I will take a bin bag with food he might like and see if he comes about.

Michelle had another call from a gent saying that he saw someone in a van trying to catch a spaniel which had gone into a ditch on the Camelford/Boscastle road earlier today. He said definitely a spaniel dog but couldn't see legs as they were in the ditch.- We are aware of who the driver of the van is and that he is aware of Oscar being missing - and are currently trying to track him down and get more details from him.

Thanks Fergal thats fantastic. I have been all around that area too when I finished work but as you said the weather was rubbish so not surprised to see anything at all. I have delivered poster appeal letters to the houses around Trebarwith Road area.

The security man on the gate was lovely and took one to copy the rest so I could distribute the few I had left. I hijacked a postman and his van, he took 2 and said he'd keep one in van and put one up in Camelford for you. Also put one in the
Collans Cross Kennels office (no one there at the time). Then mooched up and down Trebarwith Road and into Trebarwith Strand, delabole and surrounding lanes and on to Crowdy. Awful weather so wasn't surprised to see absolutely nothing other than a lot of ponies at Davidstow Airfield and Crowdy looking pretty wet and miserable too.
Afterthought: Davidstow Garage on A39 looked like a busy workshop type place and a good place to put a poster but I had none left. Perhaps someone could pop up there with one? Last edited: 2013-12-18 17:53:12 by Fergal's Servant

Is this latest sighting near the Davidstow Cheese factory? If so if you let the security guy know on the desk he will print out and let every driver have a poster as they go out he has been so helpful in the past and their drivers have been so good at spotting lost dogs in the area as they sit up high in their cabs and can see across the fields.

Another possible sighting, last night near the quarry at Delabole - this isnt far cross country from the last sighting and there are walking paths for most of the way too. Looks a lot like he is following the pattern of refuse collections as Delabole has - like Camelford- just had their bins emptied. Bags... not wheelie bins in this area. Michelle, Pauline and I have been out for much of today looking in , around and between these villages and surrounding countryside. Bumping again for the new sighting.
Michelleand Jon
Apparently the bin collection was the day after he was seen, so wondering if he went to a built up area scavenging. Were trying to find out when the collection days are for the surrounding areas.
Been out searching and postering with ESSJ. Also asked the young man at the garage if he could get someone to look at their CCTV. Will be doing a search on Saturday morning meeting up on the corner near the garage Bodmin turnoff at about 10.30

If you ever need a hand to search please let me know as I am with in half an hour and well I got a springer collie and though its been so long he will be there and maybe your right and someone has taken him in. Do you think letter boxing that area would help? Someone might not know that 'their' dog is your baby.

If you need help just say and I so hope you will soon have him back

I just realised I remember Oscar... I met him at Par Moor. I am the idiot with the mental white and black springer cross collie who eats car seats etc. I am so sorry he is still missing and I will do anything I can to help you get him back. Last edited: 2013-11-28 19:05:31 by Seeks

Also scented next to the allotments which is just behind the garage.

Went up there but no sighting of him. Asked in the garage and the young girl behind the counter saw him heading towards town, questione her about his appearence. The dog was brown and looked in a fit state. Also saw a police man while in garage but he's not seen him or had any reports of a loose dog but he has taken a poster to put up at the station. I went into town but nothing Also headed behind the garage towards Camel River (Advent church) and put posters up around the area. Had a message on facebook that a dog had been seen like him at Truckle Valley which is just before tha garage on the same road heading towards Camelford.

Sighting of Oscar less than an hour ago at camelford petrol station. Bumping x
Michelleand Jon
Been and put posters up just outside of Mount on the moors crossroads heading to Cardinham and Millpool. A dog was hanging around the area and followed someone home. They fed and bathed it but it bolted out the door. They said it looked like Oscar but think he was a bit more collie like. This dog had a collar with the name of Nobby on it. I'm wondering if it is him and someone picked him up and changed collar or is it a different dog altogether.

Still got my eyes peeled for you sweetie and will never give up.

I have been leaving food down with a motion camera for nearly a month now and still nothing on the camera showing him. He seems to be moving from place to place all the time. ESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire plotted all the sightings we have had on a map while we were out searching for him and he seems to be moving in a 5 mile radius of Blisland (where we live now). We keep postering but it always seems to be months between sightings, it doesn't help when its miles and miles of moorland, a needle in a haystack springs to mind. I just pray to god that we can get him home soon, 2 years 6 months he's been gone and there hasn't been a day go by that I haven't looked, advertised, crossposted.

I was only thinking of Oscar last night! I was watching a video of our holiday in Cornwall 2 years ago. We were walking the Camel Trail near Shell woods and Respryn woods with our dogs and I thought to myself "what if Oscar was watching us all the time?" Maybe my Ozzie, who is now at Rainbow Bridge, has decided to make some magic and get Oscar to come home to you at long last? I really hope so - you so deserve it xx
Timmy's Mummy
Poor you, this is such a sad story. I hope that Oscar comes home soon. xx
DogLostMax, Area Co-ordinator, Cornwall
Every time I see a spaniel, I check it's markings in the hope it could be Oscar.
I hope you get something positive very soon.

Really hope he is back with you very soon....like you, I would never give x

Oh I do so hope it's your Oscar. Fingers crossed for you !

Possible sighting between Warleggan and Mount in a lady's garden last night. (sighted in this area when he first went missing) Been given permission to set a trap up.
Michelleand Jon
It's not Oscar. Also chased up another today but this dog had been reunited. Went out BBQ'ing with ESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire last week in the woods but no sign of him. I'll never give up on finding him.

Great, this sounds positive, hope he is seen again very soon, come on Oscar, you are nearly 3yrs old, got to be home for your birthday xx

Bumping due to sighting- ooops sorry about his bithday- was looking at that calendar and didnt realise i was a month ahead lol xxx time to share you again Oscar lad, please share and ask everyone you know to share him especially if you are near Bodmin or the areas close to the camel trail. X
Michelleand Jon
I was stopped in Asda carpark this evening by a young girl and her dad who saw the missing dog poster on my car. The girl was out riding the Camel trail a couple of weeks ago and a dog looking like Oscar was following her. At Shell woods heading towards Tresaarett. He was all mattered up on his chest and she asked people she came across to be told he looked like a farm dog. I gave her a card with the number our telephone numbers on. So it looks like he maybe back in the Shell wood area.
Michelleand Jon
Jane Oscar isn't 3 until 18th of March. Got some more fliers out today with the north cornwall dog walking group. Also gave out about 500 fliers at Pencarrow on Snopdrop Sunday with the guys from K9 crusaders. They were absolutely fantastic and a lovely bunch of dog loving people. Thank you for letting me come along to help and hand out missing fliers.

As I've said with Molly CM post code, would everyone print a little photo of Oscar and keep it on you. Everytime you see a spaniel, have a secret peek just to check. One really never knows when Oscar will crop up. Michelle & John, you and Oscar are always in my thoughts too. You have all become so special to us. xxx

Possible sighting of a springer/dog similar to Oscar about a mile from Washaway nr Pendavey Farm. Not very far from some of the other sightings from last year. Bumping. Fingers Crossed Shell xxx
Michelleand Jon
The food had been taken but the camera didn't trigger. So left more food, nice smelly liver but that had not been taken this morning. Left some fresh food and checked the camera was working properly. Come on Oscar show yourself please I just want to see you with my own eyes or a picture of you so I know its definately you that people have seen.
Michelleand Jon
I left food down on Friday and went back the next day and it had gone. Walked round the area with Izzy (my springer bitch who is in season) but didn't entice him out. May have found a few spots where he could be bedding down. I checked on the food situation this morning but none has been taken since I first put it down. I have put a patch of cornflour down so I can check for footprints as even when Izzy cam with me, she left no footprints at all. My wildlife camera is all charged up and ready to go, but not quite sure which will be the best area to put it.
bazil
Praying the St Tudy sighting is Oscar. It would be absolutely wonderful if he was home this Xmas. Good luck x

Dog very similar found bodmin Cornwall. Tel Nicole on 07927905274 it was on my Facebook a crossposting from the dog house. Hope it's him.
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Actually the dog sighted in ST Tudy today could very well be Oscar(bumping was due to the post at 12.57 noting a new sighting that had just taken place), The lady who sighted him said dog seen is VERY similar and will - along with her co workers - be keeping an eye out- especially now this dog has been seen more than once in close proximity- she will try to take a photo next time. New posters are up and all in the school are aware to keep an eye out for this dog. Hopefully this is the break we need that will bring us to him- Michelle has found somewhere close by where he could be hiding out and has left food there to see if it is taken. Everything crossed for you Michelle xxxLast edited: 2012-12-14 19:04:35 by ESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire

possible sighting of Oscar in St Tudy again about an hour ago, helpers on way there and person who sighted him is trying to get a photo, Seen in a field from what i can gather from Shell, Michelle will update a bit later, i have absolutely EVERYTHING crossed!!!Bumping

On NWESSW Facebook page there is a male spaniel that has been found in Bodmin, realise it a long shot but could it be Oscar, the dog is being advertised on gum tree.

Hope the sighted dog is one of them and found safe very soon x
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
bumping just in case it is Oscar, have also bumped Tilly x
Michelleand Jon
I have been up the A30 with a man that called about a springer crossing the A30 a few weeks ago, the dog looked in a very sorry state, soaking wet through and bedraggled. He could not tell me if it was Oscar or not because it happened so fast. As the sighting did not register straight away with the man we drove up to look for a familiar stretch of road and it could be one of 2 stretches of the A30. One stretch is Launceston and the other is about 1.5 to 2 mile east of Cheriton Bishop. So if you live in any of these area's would you please keep your eyes open. It might or might not be Oscar but it is dog that looks like he is lost and trying to find its way home. Rang and left a message on answerphone of Tilly's owner ID 45970 as she is missing from Cheriton Bishop and the sighting was on the same day 26th November.Last edited: 2012-12-08 21:57:24 by Michelleand Jon

Thanks for the text earlier Michelle- sorry havent had a chance to bump before- but bumping now for possible sighting xxx Please let it be Oscar , keep safe and show yourself again lad xxx
Michelleand Jon
We may have had a possible sighting of Oscar on Saturday night in St Tudy. A lady of Bodmin's buy swap sell group on facebook has commented on Oscar's video that she saw a dog very much like him on Saturday night. Please if anyone is in the area, make sure you have our numbers in your phone 07751 208298 michelle,07939 726019 Jon, 0844 8003220 doglost, if spotted please try to get a photo on phone if you have the ability.
Michelleand Jon
It does look very much like him but longer fur and slightly different features, this one has spotty feet and Oscar never had spotty feet. If someone has castrated him its possible his fur could grow and as he's got older his features could have changed a little. Going to have a look closer and compare photo's.

I REALLY REALLY wish it will be your Oscar's turn very very soon. You have been waiting too long x
Michelleand Jon
He was in dogs today magazine back at the start of the year. There is not a day that goes by that I don't wake thinking of Oscar, asking myself if today is going to be the day that I find him? Is he out on his own or as somebody got him? Is he ok, got shelter food and water? I have got all the equipment ready, trap, camera etc just waiting on a sighting so I know where to put it. I know that when I find him (if he's been out on his own) he would be ferral and it will take time to get him back to his old loving self. I just want him back so much. I read of other dogs been reunited and are happy for the owners but sad at the same time cos I wonder when it will be Oscar's turn to come home.
Reynard
I think of Oscar a lot and would so love for this boy to reunited with Michelle & Jon, Has Oscars story been in the Dog mags such as Dogs to day?
Michelleand Jon
Been out putting more posters up today. I jut pray that if he is still out living rough that he has food, water, shelter and he is safe. God I miss him sooooo much.

Oh my its hard to express what wonderful news this is
Praying for you xxx

There is also another liver and white with full tail been caught after some adventures but not in your area. Now held in RSPCA Northumberland but sounds like he has been on the run a while so worth a call at least. Again on the found list No1425.
sophiesuds
Hi sorry to see Oscar is still missing but well done for keeping the search going. Have you read the details of the sighted liver and white spinger spaniel that is listed on the found section. From the description it sounds similar to Oscar may be worth a look. Not sure of how far this is away from you but the amount of time he has been missing he could be further away. The number is 41499 hope it is him you deserve it. Paws crossed.

Sending postive thoughts to you both and hoping with all my heart that it won't be long now before you get your beautiful boy home xx

Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Keeping everything crossed for you Michelle and Jon. If he's staying near the Camel Trail at least he will have a plentiful supply of water!! My Facebook picture was taken at the picnic area at Shell Woods, so hopefully this is an omen. Are your posters still up along there? Maybe he's living on left over food at the picnic areas? Also I remember a pub we went to right by the Camel Trail, but can't remember the name of it at the moment. Have you postered all the pubs, etc along the trail? Should be lots of people walking along there now in this glorious weather. Hope you get another sighting soon. Love to you both, Alison xx

Message passed on by Sue who helps me look for Oscar
I saw a woman yesterday at bodmin asda who says she saw oscar about 3 weeks ago in the layby on the a30 she had stopped to answer her phone when she saw him she got out the car to get a photo but he saw her and did a quick u turn and ran into fields again but she says if he tries to cross again where he was it will take him down the lane to shell woods which hopefully could mean he still in that areaxxx dunno if any use really but thought i wud pass the info on x

Gutted for you Michelle and Jon. Come on Oscar boy, be sighted again please x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
There may be a reason for this collar sighting, so don't worry. Who knows it could be something that Oscar checks on his triangle. I'd still pop something back there, just in case. You are doing so well. I know it must be so incredibly hard living your life like this, but you are the most fantastic owners and so deserve to find your precious Oscar and soon. x
Michelleand Jon
I hope so because if someone gets hold og him at least they will have a number to call.
NickyJ
:( At least it means he probably still has his collar and tag on.
Michelleand Jon
Ggggrrrrrr its not Oscar's Collar. It's my Izzy's, I totally forgot she lost it. I suppose it was me hoping so much that he would be close to home. So back to the previous sighting down near the Camel Trail between St Breward and Blisland. Sorry guys for getting hopes built up, I'm gutted.
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Oscars collar was found by the lady vicar who married Michelle & Jon nearly 3 years ago. It was founds by the track leading to their drive and gate- not far from home, intact, buckle still done up, not rusty like it had been laying there for ages.speculating but this area is walked probably daily and i am sure someone else if not Shell and Jon would have spotted and picked it up before now had it been there for any length of time. Come on Oscar, Please go Home xxx

So so many people willing Oscar back home. Please let this be the break that is needed for these great owners. Everything crossed.

Wow, that's good news, wonder how long ago she found it? Hopefully recently and a scent trail can be laid to home as suggested! xx
Stroodsue
awe, this is good news, Perhaps a scent trail back to HOME from where this collar has been found.. again! a new trail, keep doing a new one, every couple of days, same route. good luck! Oh can you post the Facebook page here please thank you
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
Oh my goodness! It is very likely that this will be part of his triangle if he is still on the loose; he could well be. These dogs are so clever at surviving in the wild. This could also serve as one his sniffing points as he goes around, so I feel that you need to replace it with something else that still smells of home. A permanent marker, well scented. So if he does come past he will still know its the right place and will also know that this is a new home smell, so may stay around there. So hope this leads to his safe and speedy return. If he isn't on the loose, this could also be a link as to who may have picked him up and give you further clues as to what direction to go in next. So many wishes and prayers are out there for you and sweet Oscar. x

We have had a message on our answerphone from a lady saying she has found Oscar's collar on the moors. I have rang back but got her voicemail. When I get hold of her I will ask where on the moors she found it, this may give us some idea of which direction he went in.
Michelleand Jon
Scented from the Camel Trail at Tressarret up through Blisland towards home, managed to get the the end of our road before ran out of scent in bottle, so improvised half way down the road back to home. I hope you manage to smell your way home Oscar, we only have a few more weeks left here.

We have had a bit of good news. We went and stood a carboot sale and had Oscar's banner up on the side of the van. A gentleman said he could have swore he saw Oscar 2 days ago near tressarett just down the road from Shell woods (on the camel trail) heading up towards Blisland. This is not far from home. He looked bedraggled like he had been out for a while, he hopped over from a hedge into the road. I'm hoping that he has took some notice of the communicator and is trying to find his way back. Please Oscar try to find us boy xx
NickyJ
Sending you all best wishes and hoping for some luck at last. Nx
PS. My dog is about 8 years old, he's the same cross breed as Oscar, and they look very much alike. My dog was picked up having been living feral before I got him and all I know is I have no doubts at all of his ability to survive on his own, find his own food, seek shelter and live out in all weathers.
Michelleand Jon
Have been walking down by the railway, took Izzy with us as she is in season but no luck as yet.
Michelleand Jon
No news unfortunately. I have been posting leaflets to houses that back onto the railway line. Also called the dog warden's office to inform them of the latest possible sighting. I think a search over the weekend would be a good idea. Will try to get something together for Saturday. Watch this space

We had another possible sighting yesterday at Colquite woods (on the Bodmin to Camelford road) This dog had a different coloured collar on though but we are not ruling it out as someone could have taken him in and he got loose again. The food I have been leaving has been taken every few days.

Gosh almost a year now that Oscar has been missing...just heard you will be featured in the nexst issue of your dog magazine...well done.
Michelleand Jon
I have been leaving food there every evening since we got the call. The first night the food went but it hasn't been touched since. So this evening I'm trying sausages his favorite and see if they get ate.

With collie in this boy, he could survive very well in the wild. Look at all the collies on this site that have done just that. So come on Oscar, lead your family in the right direction if you can, boy. So hope this is you. x
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
PLEASE let this be Oscar!! Been following his page ever since he went missing nearly a year ago. Come on boy, time to go home to Michelle and Jon xxxx

This sounds very promising,,,good luck! xxx

Bumping Oscar due to Possible sighting of a dog similar to Oscar near colquite- eating from rubbish- def a dirty springer type dog of the right colouring but not def Oscar as lady who sighted had a fleeting glance and when she turned round and went back the dog was gone. Michelle has been over to check out yesterday but saw nothing, she will be going agin today just in case. Good luck and fingers firmly crossed that this is Oscar xxx
Michelleand Jon
This has been put on Oscar's facebook group.

Might be nothing, but someone seems to think they have seen a springer cross with beauty spots in a grey car outside a vets on Friday Between 4.30 and 5 ish.. I only found out today. The vets is in Launceston, the dog was in a grey car apparently being hyper. The vets number is 01566 772211. I would say it is worth a phone call Michelle if nothing else. I don't want to get your hopes up but please phone them.

I have called the vets and the lady that I spoke with could not help beside ask us for details of Oscar. I have sent them 2 posters in the past to find out they get taken doen after a month so I have emailed them and sent another poster in the post.

still thinking of you and praying you have your boy home soon xxx

I 'shared' the video on Facebook today. My mother in law added a comment a little while ago: "Tuesday last we were waiting at the bus stop in St COLUMB MAJOR and there was a similar dog roaming on it's own on the grass verge. I remarked it should not be out without someone.... The bus came along so I could not do anything about trying to find whether it had a collar." St Columb Major is about 6 or 7 miles from Roche, where there appears to be a past sighting, my MIL is not really a 'doggy person', but I feel that I should pass it on. Happy to pass on her phone number.

It has been a very difficult last 11 months. Its the not knowing that bites. We try to stay positive and pray for some good news. Still go out searching but there hasn't been any sightings really since the end of September. We'll NEVER give up on him.
STORM70
hi, god this must be hell for you, i really hope he turns up. im currently in sussex but i will be moving to cornwall in march and be spending time around bodmin, i will keep my eyes open for him but hopefully he will be home with you by then. good luck
Flo
Hi Michelle and Jon, I am so sorry you haven't had any new info to help in your search for your dear Oscar. You are so determined to find your boy and I am sure sooner or late that you will, I just wish it was now. Good luck, keeping my fingers crossed that receive some news very soon x x x x
Michelleand Jon
This isn't Oscar :(. It will be 11 months on Saturday since he went missing. With no new sightings or anything else to go by it makes it very difficult to know where to start looking. I will get our Oscar home if it kills me.

Our dog wardens picked up a male Springer Spaniel in Stonebroom on 22 December.

'Pudding', as he's been named by council staff, is around 2 years old – brown and white with a white stripe down his nose. He had no collar and tag and although he is micro chipped no owner details are registered against the microchip.

If you know someone who has lost a dog fitting this description please contact us as soon as you can, we'd hate him to spend his Christmas in kennels!

If Pudding's owners don't come forward we will have to look to re-home him in the New Year. If you think you could give him a home please contact us, all dog adoptions are subject to a successful home check and the dog's owners not coming forward prior.

Hi Michelle and John, just to let you know we are thinking about you and Oscar today and every day. Christmas is hard when there is a gap in the family.
Neighbark
Hi, i've been watching this site for months now, hoping you find your boy. Re- the 2 springers visiting the mans garden, are the piccies good enough to send to Doglost head office, for Jayne to list them on the 'dogs found/sited' - in the hope that they might be reunited with their owners? thanks.
NickyJ
That's a great shame, and also means there are two other lost doggies out there. Fingers crossed for you for more sightings soon x
Michelleand Jon
I have been sent some photo's of these 2 springers and none of them are my Oscar. Have checked on Henry too but I don't think it is him. Definately not Biscuit either. Will try to get the photo's on Oscars facebook group when I get a moment.

Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Wow, this sounds hopeful! I don't suppose he has any way of preventing them from getting out of the garden once they are in (like a gate) so that they can be caught?
Michelleand Jon
We received a call last night from a gentleman (Fraddon area)that has had 2 springer spaniels going into his garden on an evening to eat the bread he has put out for the badgers. This has been happening for the last few weeks. He has asked around but nobody seems to know who these dogs belong to. He has invited me over as he has seen my Oscar is missing, I'm going to try to encourage them to come close and also get a photo. I have got a poster of Henry (34277) as he went missing from Grampound which is not a million miles away, so fingers crossed this will be Henry and Oscar. He did say try not to get hopes up but if it is not either of them at least we can cross them off our list.
Michelleand Jon
I have spoken with the lady called Melissa who found the dog 35151 and she believes it has been reunited with it's owner now.
Michelleand Jon
Thanks dorofin, I have called this morning but no answer. Will be trying again later. Even if this is not our Oscar we can cross this dog off the list.

Hi, I'm really not sure if this is of any help: my friend had her sprocket stolen over the weekend so we're doing all we can to help; I was browsing through preloved an came across a sprocker for sale by the name of Oscar, who is a year old, here's the linkhttp://m.preloved.co.uk/m/showadvert/1034749215/sprocker-spaniel.html I then saw your post on here and thought I would pass this on in the off chance of helping!

Once you get the camera if you need any advice about setting it up please give me a call. The one for Poppy took quite a few nights for us to get it right. We have yet to see her on it but still hopeful. Jo - 07852 819132. Or Oscar you could just go home and save the trouble.

Hoping to see Oscar in the blue at last. I do hope the camera does its job and your boy will be home soon. Thinking of you and sending you best wishes. zeffi

A nice lady has set up a twitter page for Oscar and put this link up on his facebook group.

Oscar has his own twitter page, please follow him (literally) and find him soon.... http://twitter.com/lost_dog_oscar
Michelleand Jon
I have just ordered a camera. Thank you to Rita, you are truely Oscar's angel, I cannot thank you enough. Hopefully Oscar will show himself sometime soon so I can get another feeding station set up and hopefully see if it is him.
Maggie
I still check whenever I can get on-line and often think of you. How much do the cameras cost? M
Michelleand Jon
Thank you Kimmybear those are very special words and it is so true. The network of support has been fantastic and it helps us to be more determined to find him and not give up. I was hoping after the weekend with the fireworks he would show himself as he hates fireworks. But nothing as yet. As it is dark early now it's normally pitch black when I finish work but I still have a drive round just incase he is trotting down the road. It's alot better on a weekend as I have daylight on our side. I will find him thats one thing I'm sure of.
The dog that was found at Porthleven had a collar with a tag (Mansfield, Notts) area. For whomever this baby belonged to I'm truely sorry for your loss.
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
M&J, God bless you and Oscar and all of you kind people out there supporting them. You are all great! Those of us who have been thru something similar, even for just a day, will know just how much your support means to Oscar's family and that is what we are all here for. When you have a loved one missing you really need that support network of others who truly understand and care. We will continue to pray for Oscar's safe keeping and continue to search and offer support until precious Oscar is home. x

I had a lump in my throat when I read that yesterday. Really hope Oscar is safe and you get another lead soon x x x x
Michelleand Jon
I'm in the process of saving for a IR motion camera. No sighting up near the cottages at all since September. I'll give the google maps a go, if I get stuck I will ask for your help.
There has been a liver/white spaniel type dog found at Porthleven (body washed up) Dog ID 34048. Poor little thing. I have left a message on the voicemail and awaiting a call back with more details if possible. Porthleven is about 45 miles away (ish) but I'm still checking. Got a big knot in my throat, I hope my boy is safe.
NickyJ
I'm following your thread on your beautiful Oscar. Hope you get some more news soon. I wondered if you'd tried an IR motion activated wildlife camera at all, there's the site of the holiday cottage where one might be set-up? Just a thought. Keep your spirits up - he's out there somewhere. Nicky x

PS: I've been helping to look for Poppy (31602) and I've plotted her sightings, plus where she went missing from, onto a Google map:
http://g.co/maps/v26wh
It is quite easy to set up and I'd be very happy to do one for Oscar too if you wanted?
I'm not familiar with the area, but could just go from the descriptions you have on this forum.

Sorry to hear there has been no news, hang in there. Really really hope you get that all important phone call very soon. There are loads of people willing your boy home x x x x x
Michelleand Jon
Unfortunately there is no news at all. Things have gone really quiet, its worrying. With the nights drawing in early is making things more difficult too. I just wish he would show himself to someone who knows were looking for him. I call the dog wardens as soon as I hear anything too so they know what is happening just incase they get called out. I hate the no knowing its torture.
Flo
Any news on dear Oscar? x x x x
cfsmith
Just throwing this idea out there to see how many helpers we could get..
I would like to organise a stakeout regarding my theory of Oscars evening route (From Respryn Woods to Cardinham Woods), this would entail posting spotters along his known route near to where he's been sighted before, this time the majority of the spotting could be done from the comfort of a car.
7 pairs or single spotters in cars would be great but if more or less i could arrange the positioning however.
The operation could be next weekend on Saturday or Sunday & start around 4pm & i would expect to finish no later than 10 pm.
If you would like to help please post or email me at cfsmith@sky.com what times & what day would suit you best, even if you can only offer an hour or two it will make all the difference.
angi
good luck tomorrow night. I'll be thinking of you xx wish i lived close enough to help x
Flo
Good luck really really hope it brings you some fresh news/sightings! x
Michelleand Jon
Myself and a few helpers from Oscar's facebook page are going to meet at Respryn Woods car park on Friday 6.30-6.45pm to go out to observe the area as it starts to turn dusk, as there are plenty of phesants/rabbits out at this time and its easy pickings for a hungry dog. If were lucky enough to get a definate sighting of Oscar and can pinpoint him to an area and what direction he was going in, Ray said he will come down to Cornwall and help us catch him. If anyone would like to come and help please remember to bring a torch and wear sturdy clothing as weather has been awful lately.
Michelleand Jon
Nothing at all since Mo saw him last at Respryn woods. Icemac14 went around this area and spoke with a farmer who owns quite a bit of land around the woods. He lost his dog for 6 months in Respryn with no sightings and then he turned up 6 months later at the door like he had not been away. The farmer is going to keep an eye out for him. Thinking of doing an evening/night search on Friday at Respryn. We had a call from Ray (one I mentioned who catches dogs) and he has given us some good advice which were going to give a go.
jimjams
Have there been any sightings in the past week?
Michelleand Jon
Went and chcked trap also walked up at Respryn woods. I bumped into a dog handler policeman who was up there. I gave him a flyer and he said he will look out for him. He also said that there are a few farm dogs and asked if he could have been mistaken for one of them.
Michelleand Jon
It is fairly open land around there so will go and check it out.
scootjockey
My cocker enjoys playing there too,easy to hide Peacefull place. Sniffffer dog wouldnt do any harm.
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
I agree with Reynard, definetely worth checking to see if he has a den in the grounds of the crem. There have been quite a few dogs on here that have been found hanging around cemeteries x

Well done Michelle ,maybe actualy in the 'Crem' xxxLast edited: 2011-10-03 07:29:36 by Reynard

come on oscar. where are you? will make my year when you come home boy....
Michelleand Jon
The path which leads up to the crem can get quite busy with dog walkers and dogs will go into the trap to take the bait. If I can find a quieter place to put it I will move it. I'm off out during the day this weekend to try to find somewhere that maybe suitable.
Reynard
"This path leads upto Bodmin Crem which is just down the road from where he was sighted last week."

Maybe a trap would work here?
Michelleand Jon
I have come back home with the scent of Dotti our friends little bitch that Oscar loved (she is in season) I'm going to out the scent near the trap in the morning and hope that this may work. Freshly baited trap today too.
Went for a walk round Respryn woods this evening and met Mo who saw him on Monday, she has pointed me in the right direction to look for him. This path leads upto Bodmin Crem which is just down the road from where he was sighted last week. Checked on the trap too but nothing. I spoke with the holiday makers that are in the cottage this week and they have a flyer of Oscar and are keeping a look out. They have said they will leave some food outside the door to see if this will attract him and try to entice him inside. I feel sooo close but still so far away. I am determined I will get my Oscar boy home though.
icemac14
walked al around respryn woods yesterday but no sign of oscar but left his posters on the gates so they will be seen

Are there any ex sniffer dog handlers on here, maybe a sniffer dog trained to know Oscar's scent would be the answer or is that wishful thinking?? I'm wishing!

hi thanks for that mo had a look tonight but really dark even with a torch will have another look in the morning respryn woods are so big when you have no idea where to look so thank you for answering me
mo
That is, go up the lane on the left then take the path down to the right going through a wooden swing gate.
mo
Hi yes, no problem. From Bodmin driving towards Lanhydrock take the left turn (road to Respryn). Along that road there is a right turn which cuts through to Lanhydrock, opposite this there is a little lane goes up on the left where several cars often park to dog walk. The dog was seen on the path that goes down to the right which eventually leads down to the respryn to Bodmin station path. Please post again if that doesnt make sense.
icemac14
sorry forgot to add i am a friend of michelles and have been out helping her look for oscar michelle is having a much needed holiday for a couple of days so am looking out for her

Whilst walking our own dog in the woods just above Respryn around 7 this evening we spotted a dog fitting the discription of the liver and white dog seen near the Crem recently. ran past us 3 times, obviously lost and appeared a little disorientated. Was not interested in any contact with us though. Was wearing a collar which my husband thought looked like bluey webbing although cant be sure. Was amazed to read recent comments and hope you find him
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Hi Michelle. Was the holiday cottage the one with the For Sale board? My husband and I stood there for a while looking longingly at it! Just think, I could have walked right by you and not even realised it was you! Don't suppose you were at the Quiz Night at The Old Inn at St Breward last night??
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Have just got back from sunny Cornwall this afternoon. Boy, how I wish I'd had internet access when we were there!! My husband and I walked our dogs in Cardinham Woods on Tuesday!! I was on the lookout for Oscar all week - you wouldn't believe the number of one track lanes we have been driving up and down! I really hope this is him. We came across the moors at Temple on our way home this morning and I remember thinking how it would be an ideal place for him to be holed up. When we were at Cardinham Woods on Tuesday 2 transit-type vans rolled up and off loaded about 8 collies for a walk - I saw one that was Oscar's colouring but only saw him from the back just before he took off. Maybe this was an omen?? Would love to have met up with you Michelle, but no mobile signal where we were staying. Keeping everything crossed here for you. Come on Oscar xxxxxx
Jackie
I keep checking on Oscar... I know it in my heart that you will find him just hope it's soon... come on Oscar your time is up summer is nearly over xxxx
Michelleand Jon
No news this morning, the trap was still as it was when left. I have scented a fresh trail up to it this morning. Because the trap is something new he may give it a wide birth for a little while until he gets use to it. Going across to check tonight. I'm only checking the trap in the morning and evening because I don't want to keep disturbing it as this would probably put him off going near.

Trap is set and baited with marinated garlic, herb rabbit. Nice and smelly. It looks like he could have been bedding down in a barn. Not pinning all my hopes on this so still looking other area's aswell. Just hope and pray that this is my Oscar and we can get him home very soon.

Drove across the moors at Temple last night and up through Cardinham in the hope I may spot him.....

This evening I went down to Cardinham woods and on the way back stubbled across a holiday cottage so asked if they had seen Oscar. They couldn't believe it when I showed them a picture. They told me that he had gone up to their window twice last night. Jon and I are going to move the trap in the morning and hopefully will get an Oscar caught in it very soon.

Went out scenting from Cardinham to Temple over the A30 bridge then ran out of scent. Hopefully if this is my Oscar he will follow his nose. Whilst out I had a call from Ray (40 years experience in catching missing dogs) he has said that if anyone see's Oscar not to try to catch him or even call his name as for some reason dogs will run even if their name is called. So just try to be submissive and talk normally to him and call one of us asap maybe stay with him until one of us can get there. Apparently he will know safe area's and best way to get out of fields etc. I will get him back I'm determined he is coming home.

Michelleand Jon
Whilst at work tonight a member of Oscar's facebook group came in saying they had just seen a dog matching Oscar's description over near Bodmin Crem. He had a large beauty on left hand side of mussel but didn't see right side. Oscar has this marking. He followed him towards Cardinham woods but lost him. Said has markings like Oscar and looked like a dog that had been out for a while or a farm dog as very dirty un the underbelly. Not sure if this was him but looked on the map and a direct route from Penwithick to there is 12km. If Oscar is heading in this direcion I don't think he would cross the A30 as it is a very busy road. All the sightings seem to be on the other side of the A30 to where we live. I shall be heading out in the morning going through Cardinham woods heading towards Penwithick/Treverbyn to cook. Please keep eyes open in both areas as I'm not ruling anything out. Thanks x
Not sure if on Champdogs but will get in touch with them. Called into the Treverbyn village hall last night and gave out flyers.
jimjams
Is Oscar listed on the Champdogs website / forum? There are a few users on there from Cornwall so would be worth a try.
jimjams
There is a ringcraft group that meets in Treverbyn Village Hall on a Thursday evening - I think it is something like 6 - 8 or 7 - 9, can't remember exactly? It may be worth a visit? I will drive by that way on my way into work tomorrow and on the way home.. Still keeping my eyes peeled daily.Last edited: 2011-09-15 09:40:12 by jimjams

Michelle and Jon... we check Oscar's page every day, firstly on the reunited page, my heart jumps every time but don't see him so have to come on here... one day soon he's going to be there and they'll be tears from me... stay strong he's there somewhere xxxx

Michelleand Jon
Just saw a message on Oscar's fb page posted at 3.15pm today

Cherie Gibbs
A dog of Oscar desription spotted 2 mins ago Treverbyn area !! A lady just said to me seen running on his or her own , just getting kids will have a look myself in a mo !! X

This is near the A391 where he has been spotted before. I'm heading out there as soon as I can get to my car as stuck at work at the mo, in a lift share. If anyone around the area can spare an hour to help look I would appreciate it.
Michelleand Jon
I hope this is a good omen - Yesterday evening when I was sorting the pups out. I went outside and Oscar's old collar that he lost January was on our wall. We had been looking for it for ages but never came across it. The farmer that has sheep around us must have put it there. It definately pulled on my heartstrings I want my Oscar back so much.

Thank you Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum. Feel free to give me a call and I'll put the kettle on xx
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Just printed off Oscar's poster to bring down with me on Saturday. Will be staying near St Breward for a week, but doing lots of walking all around the area with our dogs. Will be looking out for Oscar and Sky every day xx
Michelleand Jon
Went out searching the area and nothing, gave out fliers and spoke with people to keep an eye out for him. I try to stay strong and positive but still have a little cry everyday. Someone must know where he is, he has been too well advertised.
JoeCloud
Michelle keep strong , you know from Cloud that its possible, they are very clver and fall back on instinct to keep them going. Thinking of you Jackie

Paws crossed that today will be the day x
Michelleand Jon
Heading over to Luxulyan Valley on Saturday for about 12 to search the area. If anyone has any spare time to help it would be greatly appreciated. xx
Michelleand Jon
The local neighbourhood Watch Group was one of the first places I contacted.
Not heard anything recently, Sue McCormack saw a dog running through a field in Luxulyan last week, dark like Oscar but she couldn't be sure it was him, when she went to the field he was gone, she called at a farm near it and it wasn't their dog so she left a flier. We met up and went searching but no luck. Got poster up at local post office, caught a postman and poster up in the pub too. I really do want my Oscar home.
zeffi
Just a thought - have you contacted local Neighbourhood Watch groups? You may need to do this via the police, but if it can be done you could get more people looking out for Oscar. Good luck, stay strong. xx
bazil
Keep checking here and on Oscar's FB page, hoping and praying you have him back soon xx
Michelleand Jon
Thanks Tabby, I called at Tulip Foods yesterday and spoke to security who have taken a couple of posters, one for the gate and one for the employee notice board. My friend Lisa works at Cruesa kennels and has Oscar's poster up, she comes out on searches with me. I used to work with Karen Jazz's owner and she is keeping a look out and I'm sure I posted a poster to the riding school. I hope he shows himself too or if someone has picked him up, even bought him that they would contact me. I would not wish this on my worst enemy, its torchure.
Tabby
My husband works at Tulip Foods. They don't usually have meat around for dogs to pick up unless the birds take it away and drop it. There is quite heavy security on the gate as well. Its not only a few hundred yards from where Jazz (lurcher x jack )went missing. There is Cruesa kennels just up from there as well and a riding school where dog training classes are held.Might be worth contacting them if he is in the area.Hope her shows himself soon. xxxx
jobadger
There isn't a day goes by that I don't check Oscar's page. I so hope your boy's back soon - you are trying so hard. I wish you all the luck in the world - and a bit more! xxxx
guinness'mum
Hi Michelle and Jon,left you a message last night on Facebook(yes I'm Carol)the more i look and double check area it is possible Oscar is using the Saints Way,will be down there soon to help look with my herding sheepie
jimjams
Oh please keep spotting him people... I also check this page each day and drive home very slowly now with beady eyes on the Cornish alps.
Have you tried calling the meat factory (it's Tulip isnt it?). If he is hungry he may have been hanging around there? Although working at a meat factory myself I'm sure that security would have called the dog warden?
There is a place called Helman Tor on the back roads near Lanivet - a lot of people walk dogs around there, also another popular place with dog walkers is the Luxulyan viaduct and surrounding woods....
Good luck.
I wish I had more time to help look.
Michelleand Jon

Had another call this evening from a lady called Marie Hall. She said she cannot be definate but she thinks after seeing Oscar in the paper she saw him last week going down the road from Luxlyan to Bodmin about 3 miles in. He was very careful on the road and moved right into the hedge when a tractor went by but stayed his distance from a couple of walkers he was very observant. Looked in good health. There are a few farms down that way and a meat factory down a turn off. If she see's him again she is going to try to entice him to her as she uses that road quite often. He maybe heding back towards Bodmin. Going to investigate tomorrow and knock on a few doors and leave posters. Feel like I'm getting a little closer to getting my boy home.

Thanks Zeffi all our prayers are keeping him safe xx
zeffi
Oscar's is one of the pages I look at every day, hoping that he'll have been found. Best wishes for a good result from the latest in the newspaper. Don't give up on your beautiful boy. I'm too far away to help search but I'm lighting candles for him and praying that you find him soon.
Michelleand Jon
Jon has had various calls the main one been a liver & white sprollie picked up near that area but a week before the sightings. This dog handed into dog warden. I have called him just incase and he has assured me it wasn't Oscar as he has posters and put one up at the kennels they are taken to and that he is also keeping a look out for him. Mary from Bodmin (dog warden)office has been helping me keeping the wardens informed of what is happening and any sightings I get. (Thank you for your help Mary and for putting up with my constant pestering)
Anyway this dog was returned to owner.
Feel on edge again, he has got to be somewhere. Want you home our Oscar, love you sooooo much xx
Michelleand Jon

We have managed to get Oscar into the Cornish Guardian (St Austell area, link below)I am hoping and praying that this brings some news. It has been nearly 7 months since he went and I don't know how much more our emotions can take. The not knowing is the killer, I'm not sure if he is out on his own, been picked up or even sold on, then got loose to get the sighting. If this is the case then I'm begging you if you read this please contact me.

I know you must have looked at the map a million times so I apologise if I'm telling you what you already know but the pattern follows in a straight line from Roch to Colliford Lake a distance of only about 16 miles.He is still definately following a triangle. the problem we have is we don't know how long he is taking to move through the 3 points! it seemed to be about 3 weeks but I'm not sure now. I'm so hoping he shows himself again soon. xx
Michelleand Jon
Thank you so much for keeping your eyes peeled. I know he has got to be out there somewhere just hoping, wishing, praying he would show himself more to people that can help him. My workmate has popped posters in shop etc in Roche just incase he heads thats way again. Thanks for the Twitter mention. Michelle x
jimjams
I work in Roche and drive through every day - I will be keeping an eye out. Glad it is going to be in the paper again....Added to TwitterLast edited: 2011-08-25 16:22:59 by jimjams

I Have spoken to a nice lady called Caroline at the St Austell Guardian, who is going to try to put me a plea for help in finding Oscar in the St Austell Guardian, as a follow up story to the Bodmin Guardian when I was asked to take the posters down. Hopefully this will make more people aware in that area that we are still looking for him. I have stated that he is SCARED.

Good luck Michelle. I agree with Jods, he will probably be much too wary of humans now and might even run from you :(
Sounds like this is definetely a good time for a portable barbecue. Everything crossed here for you x
Jods
have traps been tried yet??? as soon as i get chance i will be down to help look with my gang of springers, he is probably too wary of people now to risk coming to close, maybe other dogs will encourage him.....?? i caught u stray dog that had been missin for weeks just by sitting in a nearby field with my dogs and a lovely smelly picnic....good luck, fingers crossed for u x

Michelle Kellington-Hand
I have not long had a call from a young lady saying that she saw Oscar in Roche 2 weeks ago and it was definately him. She was about 3 meters away from hima dn tried to entice him but he would not come and ran off into a field, she tried to follow him but lost him. She also said that he had been running in the road but cars had slowed down for him. Oscar hasn't got alot of road sense at all as there is only one road where we live and that is not used much. So scared for my boy. If any of the group members are in the St Austell/Par/Roche/St Dennis/Trethurgy area PLEASE encourage your friends to join the group and keep a look out for him also to carry our contact numbers around with them just incase they see him while out and about.

bumped due to this sighting. Show yourself again Oscar. Keep safe xxx

Good Luck Michelle & Jon xxx

Hi guinness'mum. I'm there for a week commencing 19th Sept - literally on the doorstep, so won't get chance to meet up with you I'm afraid. We'll be walking our 2 dogs all over the place, so hopefully might spot Oscar if he's not been caught by then x

Good luck, fingers crossed xx

No news at the moment. Went over to post fliers through doors yesterday. Spoke with a farmer who is going to keep an eye out for him. Also spoke the the people who are doing the circus at the Eden Project for the summer, they too are keeping a look out.

hi Michelle
Cloud is home, we didnt stop over in the end because she was a bit wobegone so traveled there and back in the day, hell of a journey more than 700 miles in all, but not one i weould do agian tomorrow if it meant getting her back. she seems unaffected by her experience and fair a lot better than i thought, thereinstinct must really kick in.

Mentioned Oscar to Adrian and Gary the wardens and i am sure if he is sighted they will do all in their power to find him. They went all out for Cloud, working in their own time and were really tenacious, so he was lost in a good bit of the county for wardens Thinking of you dont give up hope it happened for us xxx

Really really hope it does!!! You definitely deserve to get your boy home now x

There is hope for us yet. Jackie has had a call saying they found Cloud. She is going to help us with Oscar. She said when she contact everyone to tell them she has found Cloud she is also going to give them Oscar's details just incase I may have missed someone.

I have had some postcard fliers done so going to deliver them to houses round and about St Neot especially Loveny Close where is was sighted on Saturday. Hopefully this will bring some news.
bazil
Hi, gutted about it being a fox.....re possible sighting of Oscar....wondering if any travellers in your area because they usually have jack russells and let them roam around, Oscar could be with them...just a thought as same thing was reported to me about Meg a cocker who went missing, we had a possible sighting??? she was seen a week later running with a jack russell who we know comes from a travellers site and ventures out by himself for about a mile across fields. Then we had another possible sighting of her being seen on the beach with what is thought to be travellers. Meg is still missing. May be worth checking xxx
Reynard
Good Luck! xxx
angi
shame about the fox but doesn't explain the white fur on the branch as before.He must have been there recently?. Well done for stopping to help the staffie and pups.:-) xx
Michelleand Jon
Lisa and I staked out the trap to find it was a fax moving me t-shirt and the blanket. Would have never had thought a young fox would move my t-shirt must like my scent.

Had a call of a sighting at 7.15pm this evening od a dog matching description of Oscar running with a white jack russell going down Loveny Close at St Neot. Went across looking for him but couldn't see him. But did come acrossa staffie running down the road with 4 puppies. A kind lady took them in as who we thought were the owners were out.

Please, please let Oscar be back with Michelle and Jon today xx

Baited trap last night with alsorts of smelly goodies. Raw liver, hotdog sausages, bacon bites, smoked salmon and even a rabbit. The trap was set off this morning nothing inside except half an eaten rabbit. Blanket and T-shirt moved again. Stake out tonight.
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
I'm sure you already know this, but if it is Oscar, don't be surprised if he doesn't recognise you straight away, so take everything very slowly and quietly so as not to spook him! Wishing you all the luck in the world - you really deserve it xx

How about little tent and barbie nearby on friday? So so hope it is him and this is the week he will get home.

DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Well Oscar has made it into the Cornish Guardian again courtesy of Mr Jesse Foot, manager of Bodmin library. How kind of him to take the time to research Oscar, his facebook page and his page on doglost, as well as seeing the posters and his other mentions in the media. Here's the link to his view of Oscar and dogs in general. http://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com/tumblr_ln6m9orNrg1qd3louo1_1280.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJ6IHWSU3BX3X7X3Q&Expires=1308920317&Signature=ahniflBqQSKrJBPLTZu3Sl6WjBs%3D
bumping due to media coverage
Michelleand Jon
We have nothing to report, no calls or sightings. We were really hoping that we may have heard something by now. Please come home boy xxx
dinkydoodle
I have just watched on the link - at least this is publicity, just a shame the council are not happy with the posters being up, just for 1 complaint - ridiculous. Really hoping the news brings news of Oscar.

Just seen West Country News - so hope this brings Oscar back to you, thinking of you xx

I really hope so much that this brings the break through you deserve. Everything tightly crossed xx
Michelleand Jon
ITV have just been out to film we have appealled for help to find Oscar. It is going to be aired tonight. I shall find a link and put this on here and Oscar is Missing FB Group. From this we are praying that if anyone has picked him up or know where he is they will be in touch.
Michelleand Jon
Thank you Tia. We have contacted the farmers we know about Oscar and they have also contacted the other farmers. There are so many barns and out buildings around so hopefully if a farmer comes across him they will contact us.
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Have you checked to see if he's got a den in an old barn or shed? Perhaps you could ask farmers to check their outbuildings for you.
I've given my daughter posters of Oscar, Sky and Cloud as she will be down there next week. Fingers crossed you get a sighting soon xx
Tia604
We are leasing a property near St Breward where Oscar went missing. Will send a poster and ask folk to look out for him and will ensure I take several long walks with my little apaniel bitch if he is still wandering next time I am down on the moor

Thanks Beanie your a star x
This has to be good news for 'our' Oscar that we have Beanie looking out for him.
Well done Michelle & Jon!Last edited: 2011-06-19 19:54:34 by Reynard

Excellent news! Everything crossed. xxx
angi
it's brilliant that you are now on board to help Michelle and Jon now Beanie as you probably saw Oscar and as a driver in the area may see him again or know someone who has. You can see from here they have been trying so hard to find him and have loads of support. Unfortunately a lot of us are hundreds of miles away and are not there in person to help look for their boy. Fingers crossed he can be found soon xx
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Dog was very similar in all aspects to Oscar except poss a bit bigger and slightly longer haired, dog was viewed by Jon(not sure how close) We cannot rule out that this was not Oscar though as he is a young dog and living outside will i'm sure develop suitable "attire" for the outdoor living conditions.i've text Michelle your email address but cannot get hold of her atm- like you say the signal round there is intermittent! Thank you so much for all your help.This sort of detailed info is really really helpful.
Beanie
All nicely within my deivery area. Shame the phone signal doesn't accompany it.

Can i ask the dog viewed in St Neot on the 15th . . was it a stray? it could be the St Neot sightings were all of a different dog.

Further to my sighting in May his route was: Down Tripp Hill, past the school, wee'd in someones garden! truned right into Loveny Close and across a field (Public Walkway) heading towards Lampen Road.Last edited: 2011-06-17 19:13:45 by Beanie

Thanks Beanie, i will get Michelle or Jon to contact you asap if thats ok with you.
Beanie
Hi,
I am the Jewson driver who reported seeing Oscar in St Neot last month, i deliver in that area alot and have spoken to a builder on Tripp Hill who said he saw the same dog again last Friday (10th). I cannot confirm however this was Oscar.
Have you got a map showing the reported sightings and the dates?. . there might be a pattern, i ask as when i saw him it was as if he knew where he was going, and since he may have been seen in the same location a few weeks later it might be worth a shot.
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
ITV West Country are coming out to see Michelle & Jon on Monday because of Oscar's story in Cornish Guardian. Hopefully if someone has picked Oscar up, we will hear something from it.
angi
Brilliant!! Hope it brings some positive news xx
DogLostJayne - Head Office
Oscar has got some coverage from Richard Littlejohn in the Daily Mail...well done owner...
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
Been wracking my brains all night on some of these dogs. Just a thought, but often things can be hidden in plain sight. Maybe work on finding any person who has aquired a spaniel in the last 4 months in surrounding areas, as sometimes public don't connect that the new dog next door being walked is THE dog that is missing. People do take dogs in as with Pippa the collie, just been reunited. I'll keep thinking............ x
Michelleand Jon
Been out searching again this evening and check onhiding place but nothing. Not heard anything from the newspapers either.
angi
I'm so sorry this wasn't your boy but his turn will come. I really feel he will be home. Thinking of you xx
Pixie
Have been keeping my eye on Oscar's progress and completely understand your emotional roller coaster as I am going through to same trying to find my boy, Jaxx. Hope the publicity helps and that your beloved boy is back with you soon. Fingers are always crossed that all the lost and stolen doggies find their owners soon. x
Michelleand Jon
Devastated that this was not Oscar. This emotional rollarcoaster is taking its toll,one minute excited that it maybe him and the next down that its not him. I am determined that I will find my Oscar, if it kills me. There is a piece in the Daily Telegraph today page 11 about Oscar's posters and the council but no photo of him or contact details. It should all be about Oscar not the complaints (but I suppose this has helped with publicity for him) Good thing is though they have mentioned this website so I do hope there will be more views that could lead to getting Oscar home, also for all the other missing dogs that owners are working so hard to get back.
bazil
Michelle and Jon I am gutted for you both. So sorry this boy wasn't your Oscar. I really do think Oscar will be home soon, we know he is out there and after all the publicity he has getting lately and more to come, there will be many more people keeping a look out for him. Stay safe Oscar xx
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Oh no, heaven only knows how you must be feeling :(
Sadly it wasn't to be Oscar's day today, but his turn WILL come. My daughter will be down there in just over a week now and will keep a look out for him as she and her boyfriend will be doing a lot of walking in the area. Please come home now Oscar x
jann
So sorry this wasn't your boy, thinking of you xx
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
I know you must be so distraught, but Oscar is out there somewhere and you are doing so well, you are getting sightings of dogs, and at some point it will be HIM. You never know if that "just one more" poster, will be the one that leads you to him. If wishes could get him home now, he would have been back before he went! So many people care and so many people are with you through all of this. Hang in there, you deserve to find him and you will. Just wish it was NOW!!! Come on Oscar baby, come home! xxx
Flo
Oh no thats such a shame! He is out there somewhere, fingers crossed you will get another sighting of your lovely boy soon x
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
The confirmed sighting isnt Oscar :( totally gutted. Michelle and Jon have seen the dog-and its not him. Devastated is an understatement, i really feel for you both. xxx

We haven't heard anything yet from the newspaper but it only came out this morning and people have yet to come back from work. We have been contacted by Nick Irving a journalist from Exeter who also wants to do a story on Oscar to help spread the news further afield. Come on my Oscar boy please, please show yourself to a reader of the article, so we can get you home safe where you belong.

we are all rooting for Oscar...come on boy!! jaxx the dalmation lost near my area wawsn't seen for over 3 weeks. Like where you are it is very rural with lots of cover and bunnies to catch. He has now been seen a few times this week so hopefully it will be the same for Oscar. Oscar has been seen in the same area more than once so it's probable he is moving in a triangle route. What you don't know is how long it will take him to get around his 'circuit'. The odds are that he will return to this spot hopefully very soon. Thinking of you xx
Maggie
We look every day in the hope that you have found him. You deserve to get him back after all of your efforts. Too far away to help, but we think positive thoughts all the time for you and Oscar. Come on Oscar we are all willing you to be found. xx
Michelleand Jon
Could never give up on our boy, love him far too much. There has been no activity at the hiding place, no food taken and nothing bedded down on my t-shirt. I am really hoping that if Oscar is moving in a triangular route that it won't be too long before he is in that area. Not had any sightings for 3 weeks. Come on my gorgeous Oscar boy show yourself to some nice people. xx

DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Oscar is in the monthly journal gazette. Jon & Michelle have been at the Royal Cornwall Show today and handed out posters for Oscar. Come on Oscar, home time please xxx
Maggie
Oh dear, I've just had an e mail from Mr Rogerson's secretary telling me in no uncertain terms that it is against parliamentary rules to handle any case for someone outside the members constituency, i.e. they will not even consider my e mail. So this issue has to be raised by Michelle & Jon, and I would ask anyone in that constituency to add their weight to the issue by also writing.
I'm so sorry Michelle & Jon, I can't help you. I'd go to the press and local TV news if I was in your shoes, gives the MP a chance to look good by being the 'night in shining armour' and if this involved positive publicity for him it might help your cause.
Maggie
Michelle & Jon, no problem, but please don't put my personal details (don't include e mail address, full name etc - I'm very cautious with my personal details on the internet). You should be able to copy and paste the body/words of the letter without my details.
I've had a reply from Mr Rogersons secretary today asking for my postal address before he will even look at my letter, so you need to ask people to include their address when sending e mails to Mr Rogerson.
I've sent my address to him, but as I live a couple of hundred miles out of area a few e mails from local people would probably help. An article in your local papers wouldn't go amiss if they are still harassing you, it's just cruel of them and in these days of cut backs I would want my local council spending my money more wisely.
Fingers crossed for Oscar, he's more important than the local council bods worrying about posters.

Would it be ok Maggie if I copied your email on the Oscar's facebook page? Would give people an idea of what to write to Mr Rogerson.

I left some food at the hiding place last night in the hope that he maybe nearby and come and take some but when I checked this morning it was still there. Scented again and left clothing tied to a tree. Not heard anything for nearly 3 weeks now. I hope my little boy is ok and not hurt.
Maggie
Come on Oscar, show yourself, you'll feel much better at home with mum & dad. Thinking & sending positive thoughts to you & Oscar. Good luck!
p.s. I've had no reply so far from Dan Rogerson, MP re the postering problems. If you get further pressure maybe more people could press Mr Rogerson for help.

wow this does sound promising! Come on Oscar let your mummy find you now! x

Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Hi Michelleand Jon. This does sound promising! I'm sure you don't need reminding, but make sure to scent the area and leave an item of clothing with your scent on nearby. Come on Oscar, time to go home now xx
Michelleand Jon
Jane (ESSJ Beds) and I think we may have found one of Oscar's hiding places. It is a place where I kept getting drawn to so we went to investigate a little further and found some dog hair (Oscar's colour) on a tree branch. Feathers on the floor like a bird had been ate. Also Pippa and Bella were sniffing like mad around that area. Gonna keep checking and hopefully may come across him bedding down there one morning/evening
bazil
Keep coming here and checking for another sighting of Oscar, come boy let someone see you xxx
Michelleand Jon
Posted to vets again across Cornwall. There should be a article in the Cornish guardian next Wednesday on Oscar and Sky. Hopefully this will help us with some news of our babies xx
Michelleand Jon
We haven't had any further sightings of Oscar but we keep going as I could never give up on our boy, our best friend, our life's without him been with us.
Jan that is brilliant on having a story run on them both together and thats perfectly fine with us. If it helps getting one of our babies home it will make us smile. We will get them back, we don't know when or how but we'll never give up hope xx
jann
Have asked Cornish Guardian whether they will run story on Sky and Oscar (if that's ok with you). Jan xx
Jennysmum
Although this is far away from where I live I am following this and keep praying that Oscar is home soon. Our Jenny was missing for 5 nights and it was a living hell so I can't begin to imagine how you are coping after so long. As for those complaining abou the posters they would be better served using their voice to spread the word instead of complaining - sad People. Dogs are very resilient and I hope and pray that he will be back home with you soon xxx

Any news or new sightings of Oscar xx
Michelleand Jon
Thank you Maggie my email address is michellehand30@hotmail.com
I will get this onto Oscar is missing facebook group to, then if others want to write they can do also. Thank you xx
Maggie
OK I've sent a non-confrontational e mail to Mr Rogerson, explaining the situation, expressing my dismay and asking for his help in this matter. Michelle and Jon - if you want a copy of the email I can send you a copy if you let me have an address to send it to. I could put a copy on this site, but it's rather long & may take up too much room?
Good luck & ignore the beaurocrats if you can.

When I was putting up poster for a lost dog, the council workers told me that I could only put them on trees and not on lamp post as that is fly posting good luck
angi
i agree with Reynard. I also feel they are trying to use the fly postering law and agree it does not apply here. I wish you luck with the article in the paper and this week end. I wish we didn't live so far away as I would be there in a shot. I will be sending lots of 'come home' vibes to Oscar and keeping everything tightly crossed. good luck will be thinking of you xx
Reynard
I dont think they can make you in law take posters down, they are probably trying to use the Fly Postering law and you are NOT fly posting as you will be taking them down once Oscar is found and you are NOT advertising or asking for money! I would add to the posters that 'Once Oscar Has Been Found You Will Be Taking The Posters Down'
This happened here in Swindon all puff and wind, some jobs worth, it went no where!
I would perhaps also say to the council that there are not enough Public Notice Boards provided and in the right places in fact it is holy inadequate to meet your needs & once they are put up in suitable places you will galdly use them ,,,,,Michelle & Jon dont let them grind you down they are just the heartless face of bureaucracy!
Good luck for the weekend we are routing for you xxx

Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
I am definetely up for emailing a letter of complaint to the council! Perhaps the local paper would be interested to hear about this too? Wish I was closer to help you. Stay strong - we are all with you x
Maggie
What an outrageous act by the Council. The posters need to stay up whilst Oscar is missing. Would suggest that you contact your local concillors. Also if you are able to provide a name and contact e mail address I am sure many of us would e mail letters supporting you. The council need to sense the strength of feeling about this.
I'm so sorry for you, you do not need this. Sorry I am hundreds of miles away and cannot help otherwise.
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
We are trying to get together a group of people willing to sit and observe places where Oscar is either known to have been sighted or is perhaps likely to cross- the plan so far is to meet up over the weekend. If anyone can help even for just a few hours on one of the days it would be hugely appreciated. Oscars event group is : https://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/event.php?eid=134030950004491 Thanks xxx
Michelleand Jon
It was a lady called Debbie Esbary (Street Ranger) from Cornwall council at Bodmin that rang. She really did not want to have to call me about this (she must be a dog owner)but has been put under pressure from the public complaints and said she now has to look as she is acting on them. If only these peolpe who complained can step into my shoes for just one day and feel how I feel thay would change their minds instantly. Our family friend is a retired solicitor so seeking advice from him. Going to try the papers and local TV for some publicity that Oscar is still missing.
bazil
Disgusting but not suprising coming from jumped up council busybodies. Michelle I would not take the posters down and if they try to prosecute let them know you have thousands of people supporting you. Do try and check out the law but as far as I am aware you are requested to take them down once the lost animal is found. I am no expert though. You poor people as if you need this. Oscar son please show yourself xxx
angi
what total ****s can they actually do that though? or are they blowing hot air. They don't own all the land etc I don't know that they have that sort of total authority. May be worth checking your lawful position.Many solicitors will give half hour free or citizens advice bureau. Lots of house insurance policies have free legal help line also. My heart goes out to you both xx
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
This has made me really angry!!! How heartless can people be - don't they have pets themselves, and what harm can the posters really be doing???? I wonder if they are as quick to arrange for litter collections? I would just LOVE to give the jumped up busy bodies a piece of my mind!!!!!!!!
Michelleand Jon
I have been ordered by the Council to take the posters down that are not on notice boards or shop windows and I have a week to do this or can be proscecuted. May I urge people who print off Oscar's posters to keep them in shop windows and notice boards, don't really want to be prosecuted. Took a few down and was saying sorry to Oscar on every one of them. Sometimes people can be so heartless unlike the community on here that have hearts of gold.Last edited: 2011-06-01 11:36:30 by Michelleand Jon

I have scented from home over the fields down to De Lank river. The wind is very strong this evening so I am hoping with every last bit of my heart and soul that Oscar catches the scent and follows his nose home.

Michelleand Jon
I have scented the sighted area's as much as I can. Also this evening the way up our drive. I hope he catches the scent and finds his way back. Do you think he will still know the scent after been missing for this long?
Reynard
Perhaps scent this route or on the triangle points and one leading up your garden path!

Good Luck xxx
Michelleand Jon
I do not mind you repeating this Angi it all helps as my head feels like a garbled mess. If Oscar has taken the river route he must has passed our house if he took the De Lank river route because this is only a field away.
angi
I know you have looked at all this probably a million times but sometimes someone else saying it helps clarify :-) I'm from that way myself( although further east) but have to admit haven't lived in the area for 25years. Looking at the map he is at the moment following a classic triangle.
from the sighting at St Neot he moved to Collingford probably following the river Loveny ...from there he can hook up with the river Fowey again and cross the A30 near Bolventor ( don't know if a village there) and follow the river most of the way to the lake maybe using the De Lank towards the end.... From the lake he can probably follows the Fowey all the way back to Siblyback lake and down to St Neot and so on. Plenty of water most the way and of course wild fowl and rabbits. Sorry if I'm repeating what you alresdy know! x

Amended poster e mailed to helpers in PL15,30,32,33,34,35 and EX23.

Thank you Laura, when I spoke with the lady that reported the sighting she said it looked alot like the picture on Oscar's posters, a spaniel type of dog. I have been up to the Davidstow area this evening doing the bbq thing to try to attract sed dog but no joy.
laura2001
Just wanted to make you aware that a border terrier was lost on Davidstow airfield on 22/05 so the sighting at Crowdy reservoir may possibly have been this. (He has now been found).
angi
the lorry driver you said thought the dog looked very dark and he's probably quite dirty.It would be possible for him to cover that distance since the last sighting. he's still staying near water. Plenty of bunnies! x
Michelleand Jon
I spoke with the lady and she said it was at Crowdy reservoir which is near Davidstow. On this side of the A30 about 20 miles from the St Neot sightings. She could not tell me whether the dog was liver and white or black and white so I went out looking anyway. It feels like a wild goosechase with having nothing concrete to work on but I will go searching with every sighting in the hope that one of these sightings is my boy.
Reynard
Yes brilliant news, Posters rellly do their job thanks everyone!

there seems to be a lot more sightings coming in now.I don't think i can get my fingers and everything else crossed any tighter!Come on Oscar mummy and daddy need you at home now x

DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
So did i, everyone at work wondered what was going on when i shot out of the shop and into the house (to record the tv) had to explain when i got back, meanwhile one helpful customer told my staff if i wanted a dog they knew where they sold collie and spaniel pups locally and not to worry too much as they were sure i would find my dog.
Really hoping this raises awareness in the area.
Oscar is in the Camelford Post this week and also on their website.
If only sheer willpower could bring Oscar home, he'd be snuggled up there right now.fingers crossed he will be- very soon xxx
Michelleand Jon
I'll be going over to Colliford Tavern tomorrow they normally get quite a few in for the karaoke so will ask around. Fingers crossed someone will come good. I cried today when I get the text through that Oscar was on TV. I really that we hear something positive from this.
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Looking for someone in (or who knows someone in) St Neot. Thinking of possibly moving one of the traps close to where he has been sighted- subject to it being able to be checked on a regular occasion and in a secure place.if you know anyone please contact Michelle/Jon. Thanks x

I looked at the map too after the first st neot sighting and the river is a good possibility for him to use

Just another thought - do you think if he is using the river he could get as far down as Trago Mills? There would be a good source of food for him there, so might be worth putting up some posters in the carpark and stores..
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Hi Michelleand Jon. Just been having a look at a map and if the recent sighting in St Neot is Oscar, he could be travelling between Colliford Lake and St Neot along the river (map shows it as St Neot River or River Loveny). Not unusual for dogs on the loose to stick by water, plus it will be a lot quieter than travelling by roads.

& Stitch 29533 was mentioned apparently

Good luck all!!!!

Another potential sighting of Oscar this evening near St Neot,Jon and Michelle been out looking but no sign of him.Posters are doing a grand job with helping with the recent sightings- without them there would be no calls- such a shame that a few people in the local area feel the need to complain about the posters though they are not left to become tatty or blow around. Keep your spirits up Michelle & Jon,"note to Oscar" please go home now little lad - we would love to be taking the posters down - for the right reasons xxx Bumping again due to sighting.
bazil
Any sign of this lad today?? come on Oscar take the bait x
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Come on Oscar, you've got us all on the edge of our seats! Please, please, please take the lovely sausages......
Reynard
Good! lets hope he takes the bait and is soon home xxx
Michelleand Jon
I set the traps on my way back home. Baited tonight with his favourite 'Sausages'
angi
I'm sorry you didn't see him but It's good he's going around the same area. are you still baiting the traps as he will probably go back to the pub.Good luck tomorrow x
bazil
My heart aches for you both, I'm sure Oscar will be home with you very soon xx Come on Oscar lots of cuddles await you xx
Michelleand Jon
Searched for Oscar after work but no sign of him. The fog started getting thick about 8.15 and reduced visability so came home. I shall go out after work again and hopefully will get a glance of him.

What a shame the driver didn't wait suppose he had a time schedule, hope the company can give you further details. Irene

Oscar has just been sighted again nr to st neot heading toward colliford. Jon on his way over with instructions on how to react if he see's him. Everything crossed here. Xxx
Michelleand Jon
We have received a call from a Jewson's Lorry driver, who thinks he may have seen Oscar at St Neot heading towards Colliford. Did say the dog looked like it had been living rough for a while. Looks dark like black but has the white markings as Oscar and is wearing a collar and silver tag. Hopefully this is him and he has just got a dirty coat and appears to look darker than he is. Jon has gone over there now to meet with the driver and see which direction he has headed and hopefully bring our boy home.

Hi there, we've just been through a week and a day of this with our Mabel, it was a living nightmare, I can't imagine how you are feeling after all this time. I can't help practically but just wanted to say I am thinking about you, I'll cross post onto Mabel's facebook group and another one that's come about from Mabel and Spencer going missing. xx
bazil
Oh so pleased another sighting, good luck hope you bring him home soon, poor boy will be terrified, remember to take it really slow, gain his trust, let him come to you or if you have to go to him, edge sideways, slowly to get close to him x Come oscar your family love you and want you home xxx

Bumped due to sighting. Please Oscar you need to go home now, your family are waiting for you :) xxx
angi
come on Oscar go home to mummy and daddy. I've got everything tightly crossed xxx
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Fingers and paws all crossed here for you!! Hope nothing spooks him - you have probably already been told this, but remember to avoid eye contact, get low to the ground and speak softly to him or whimper. Have a slip lead handy to put over his head if he ventures close enough. He might not be brave enough straight away and you may have to take things slowly and gain his trust. Good luck - you truly deserve it xx
Michelleand Jon
We have had another sighting. Over at Colliford near the Colliford Tavern where the traps are set. Come on boy be brave and come when we call for you.
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
That's the spirit! It must be hard for you, but even if he hasn't been taken in and he is still on the loose, he will be managing to fend for himself - they all seem to, even the ones on the loose long term. If my daughter has no luck when she comes down on holiday, I will be holidaying down there myself (staying at Fentonadle - think that's how you spell it!)mid September, though I hope he's home long before then!!
Michelleand Jon
Thanks Jean, if we get another sighting that matches his description I will organise another search as soon possible. Barney n Ozzie's mum we haven't had any sightings. We have been called about a dog this eveing but it has black on it. Also another call yesterday of a dog near Roche that has been sighted but waiting from a call back from a different dog warden that what I usually phone, all I know is that they didn't catch him. So much want him home. It feels like with hardly any sightings someone may have taken him in but I'm not giving up hope that I will get my boy back eventually.
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Have there been any more sightings near Colliford Tavern and are the traps still there? Was really hoping Oscar would have "given himself up" by now! My daughter and her boyfriend will be holidaying near you in a couple of weeks time and if Oscar has still not been caught by then, she has promised to help search for him while she is there.
JeanC
I went to Colliford Lake yesterday with my 2 noisey dogs but alas i didn't see any dogs resembling Oscar. I was hoping the noise of my dogs might attract him if he was in the area. Is there going to be another group search for him?
Michelleand Jon
Thank you Bazil I have called them and this one has been reunited with his owner.Last edited: 2011-05-11 16:28:10 by Michelleand Jon

Check out Springer spaniel found yesterday, Central - 29688, no picture yet, but who knows how far Oscar could have travelled. Worth checking x
angi
fingers crossed.xx with fine weather and more people about on the moor hopefully he is more likely to be seen xx
Michelleand Jon
Gave posters to the walkers doing the ten tours walk today. A photographic journalist saw what I was doing and took some details and a photo and said he will try to get the storey in the paper. If this happens hopefully poeple will notice this more rather than a missing advert.
Michelleand Jon
I have spoken to Mary that works in the dog warden office today, she asked about any sightings so I told her about the one on the camel trail. She said that a collie was found there a few weeks ago and went back to his owner. Its really hard to know its Oscar for definate if and when we get a sighting but we chase up every sighting. Angi we have postered in about a 15 mile radious of our home so hopefully that area is covered, we will check the areas again and renew though. Thank you for the advice it will help if he show's himself again. Gemma35 thank you all the publicity helps. I would like to thank you all for your help and support, it means alot to us.
bazil
Come on Oscar show yourself again xx
Brilliant posting/info angi. A real help to find any lost dog xx
gemma35
hi. l am trying to help find oscar by posting on facebook pages
angi
lost dogs usually move in a triangle so if you look on the map you can mark a potential triangle route. The lake and camel trail are two points about 10 miles apart as the crow flies ( or dog runs)in a reasonably straight line. My guess is he would go up further up rather than the other way down towards Bodmin town so you can mark out his third point and poster in that area. He should also therefore make his way back to the pub on this route. Fingers crossed I hope the new posters bring some news. xx
JeanC
I am going to take my 2 dogs down to Colliford next week for a swim in the lake. They can get quite noisy and excited so might attract Oscar.
I will take notes of telephone numbers just incase. Not sure which day i will go. Depends on the weather.
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
sorry everyone - have had no phone or computer access for a few days, bumping due to the possible sightings. x hurry home Oscar x
angi
he's still around that's good news. Come on Oscar go back to the trap for the lovely garlic chicken smothered in mashed sardines ...you know you want too xx
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Good luck Michelleand Jon. Shame I'm not coming down your way on holiday until September, otherwise I'd be out there helping you (it's our intention to walk the Camel Trail when we are there!!)Hope he's home LONG before then xx
jann
A possible sighting, that's good news ! You feel more positive when you have something to go on, somewhere to look. Good luck with postering, fingers crossed xx
Michelleand Jon
We had a call this morning from a man saying he saw a brown and white springer collie cross 2 weeks ago at the Camel Trail but only just got our number, he did contact the dog warden but not heard anything since. Were off to put some posters up there today.
Michelleand Jon
Thank you both. Trying to keep our hopes up but with no sightings it hard to know where to look for him. If this is our Oscar over at Colliford I just wish that he would go into the trap we have set or even show himself to someone.
DogLost Volunteerselina
Still thinking of you both and willing Oscar home, have bumped on the facebook page again.
angi
we will keep everything crossed that TWO lovely dogs are reunited very soon xx
Michelleand Jon
The posters are still about in shops and notice boards. I'm going to renew to keep interest. The trap was still set this morning when I went over. Jon had a call from a farm at Otterham Station about a ddog matching Oscar's description that had been going to eat food for the last 3 mornings but this wasn't Oscar and they couldn't tempy him to catch him. He was a young black and white dog that looked like he had been living out for a while. So we went through the searches and came across Todd who had been missing since November and gave the owners a call with the details and telephone number hopefully this is him and his mum and dad can get him home safely.Last edited: 2011-06-01 11:32:36 by Michelleand Jon
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Oh dear!! Hope the little minx hasn't been taking the food from outside the trap aswell then! Are you keeping up with the postering just incase Oscar has moved away from the lake area? Hope this isn't the case and that he is just trying to get up the nerve to go in the trap x
Michelleand Jon
Well to prove that the trap is working right Max the landladies cat got herself caught in it. Bless her she was wrapped up in Oscar's blanket waiting to be let out. Just need my boy to go in there now.

Come on Oscar. xx
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Keeping everything crossed here for you. Come on Oscar, time to go home xx
Michelleand Jon
Trap has been set again this evening with liver, roast beef and garlic chicken. Hopefully one of these smells will catch Oscar's attention and he will go in to investigate. He does like his Sunday roast so fingers crossed.
Michelleand Jon
I have been over this morning and the trap hasn't been touched. So will get some garlic chicken ready and bait the trap with that too. It seems like a long time we have had the trap out but I suppose it is down to Oscar been brave enough to go back to the area. I'm just hoping that he hasn't been scared off fully when he met with Cody at the last sighting cos Cody is a very big lad, about 5 times bigger than Oscar.
angi
come on Oscar tonights the night to go home. dogs love liver also those that are trying to trap the little pup that's just been spayed have been advised that garlic chicken and sardines works best as bait.x
Michelleand Jon
There has been a bit outside it and it is been taken. I got got some liver to put in there tonight. We stayed over at Colliford again last night but no food taken when I checked this morning.
bazil
Come on Oscar come home, be brave little man x
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Are you still leaving any food outside the trap and is it still being taken?
Michelleand Jon
I Have put a t-shirt in there that I slept in for a few nights and one of his teddies. I'm just hoping that the dog he met him the garden didn't scare him away too much.
angi
come on Oscar be brave xx
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Have you put an old jumper or something with your scent on in the trap with the food? Something familiar might just persuade him to venture inside..
Michelleand Jon
Sorry nothing to report. I moved one of the traps last night to outside the enclosed rear garden just incase he is scared of going in there because of the big dog he came nose to nose with. But there is still one inside the garden too. I know its a waiting game but I wish he would be a brave little boy and go inside one to get food.

We didn't pick the trap up till late last night so we are going over to see the landlady at Colliford Tavern this evening to see if we put the trap in her back yard. I think it will be ok as she mentioned about trapping Oscar also. Was thinking about leaving the trap unset for a night or two but still baiting it so he will get use to going in there for food. Don't want to scare him off straight away. I do hope this is my boy.
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Great news! I keeping logging in throughout the day hoping to see he's been caught. Good luck xx

This is fantastic news! He may have been too scared to approach when you were BBQing. Really hope with a routine going you get to see him and eventually bring him home x x x x

this really does sound positive. How many dogs like Oscar can be lost on Bodmin moor at the moment. Everything now tightly crossed! xx
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Wow, this sounds really positive!! See if you can leave an item of clothing with your scent on nearby too. Hope he's home with you really soon xx
Michelleand Jon
At last maybe a bit of positive news. While we were going over to camp out we had a call from the Colliford Tavern landlady. About 12.30 Thursday night/Friday morning there was a young dog matching Oscar's description in there back yard. Cody (landladies big dog) went out and and they were having a sniff at each other and then (maybe) Oscar ran off. Sausages were put out for him last night and they were gone this morning. So this is going to continue to get a routine going then hopefully if we can ge a live trap then maybe, just maybe we can get him home. I was bbq'ing till 4.40am this morning and he didn't come to us with the smell.
bazil
Good luck for tonight, come on Oscar time to go home with your Mum & Dad xxx
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Great idea! I assume you will be taking a car? If he is used to travelling in it and it is right by where you are camping, perhaps leave a door open and he might jump in - it has been known to happen!! Will be keeping everything crossed for you x

Good luck Michelle & Jon, Come on Oscar lad- time to go home , please!

Thanks Flo. Jon, myself and our friend Robin are going to have an overnighter at Colliford tonight, armed with scent and bbq's. So with a bit of luck Oscar will show himself, if he follows his nose.

Great to hear you are having a positive day, fingers crossed your boy shows himself very soon x
Michelleand Jon
No news of Oscar but had a call from some young lads that found a local dog that wasn't far from his home, while they were on an experdition of Bodmin moor. So I have sent them a photo of Oscar and they are looking for him while out and about. Please thank your husband from us both. Today I feel like I'm having a positive day so hopefully that means he's somewhere close by.
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Hi Michelle and Jon. Any news? My husband returned from his business trip in the West Country today, but unfortunately nothing to report even though he did go along the A30 and some of the roads there off :-(

Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
My husband is coming down to your area on business for 2 days tomorrow. He will be travelling down the A30, so I'm giving him a poster, spare dog lead and food just in case!! Is Colliford lake the same as Colliford reservoir?(can only see the latter on my map).
Michelleand Jon
We haven't had any sightings since 27th March and they were few and far between before that. We're so worried about him. Come on boy show yourself to someone so we can bring you home. We have put Oscar in the Cornish Guardian again this week, just hope that if someone has picked him up they will see the advert and call.
Flo
No worries. Have you come across this website http://www.dogpages.org.uk/sth-west.htm it lists lots of rescue centres in the south west. Worth checking you've contacted them all. Really hope you find your beautiful boy soon x
Michelleand Jon
Thanks Selina and Flo. I have contacted Wingletang and then sent them a email with a photo of Oscar. They haven't had any dogs matching Oscar's description in either. But if there is anywhere you can think I will glady contact them if I haven't sent them a poster already.
Flo
So sorry this weekend did not bring your boy home. Come on Oscar show yourself please. I have just posted this for Jan and thought of you too. Have you notified Margaret Green animal rescue about Oscar. They have a branch at Tavistock called Wingletang Animal Rescue & Rehoming Centre: 01822 810215.

Sorry to hear no news on your boy after your search - stay positive xx
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Such a shame that you didn't have any sightings. Try not to lose heart though - could be that he was spooked by all the extra people about and was lying low somewhere just watching. I'm sure all your hard work will soon be rewarded x
Michelleand Jon
We would like to give a special very special thank you to all that have been on the search today. We were amazed of the amount of people that came to help. We have all covered alot of ground with no joy, unfortunately. But we shall carry on until our boy is found. Thank you all, we cannot show how much we appreciate all your help.

Hi Michelle, so sorry the found dog was not Oscar, Good luck tomorrow with your search, Im a little too far away to help (Bristol) but really hope you get some news soon. I will keep my eyes open for any other possible matches with Oscar. x

DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Thanks Debs, The tavern has been thought of, it has recently reopened and we believe Oscar could gain access to the bins. the last probable sighting was on the same stretch of road that the tavern is on- but the road is 3 miles long appx.
Debs
Have you been in touch with Colliford Lake Tavern. They are the A30 side if the resevoir and have a campsite. It might be somewhere the dog would visit if there is food around.
Michelleand Jon
Thank you all for keeping an eye out for Oscar. A search party will be going out on Saturday. Jon will be BBQ'ing trying to entice Oscar out. Fingers crossed we will have him home that day for big mummy cuddles.
Debs
Just to let you know that I have seen your posters up. I walk my dog up at Millpool/Temple on most days and have been keeping an eye open. Hope you find him soon.
DogLostZZ - Co-ordinator, Cornwall
Complaints about missing dog posters are commonplace down here, motivated by people with nothing better to do, who want everything 'pretty pretty.' Many of the councillors are sympathetic to us, and they don't relish having to mention the complaint to owners. They have to go through the motions, though, its their job. My advice to owners is to smile sweetly, but then get on with postering where necessary to help find their missing family member. Although I haven't been personally involved with the search for Oscar, I am following the case, and my heart is with you all. Bodmin is vast, and the fact that you've had sightings is fantastic. Pleased other co-ords have mnentioned the BBQ, have had some success with it. It is a longshot, but worth trying. Scent rises best in dry weather between 8-9.a.m., and 9.-10.p.m. The smell can carry for 3 miles or so, which is within a dog's nose range. Thinking of you all.
Reynard
VERY Good Luck xxx
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Great minds Spindle! Michelle and Jon have this morning started to co-ordinate another search for Oscar. This will take place on Saturday morning and afternoon. If anyone can help and be part of the search then please email me at bedsdoglost@gmail.com and i can give you the details of when and where Michelle and Jon will be. We need to make sure that Oscar is not scared away by all of the extra attention so a meeting has been arranged so we can explain what to do if he is sighted.

Have you already tried luring him out with a portable barbecue? I know you say it's a vast area, but they say a dog's sense of smell is so much better than ours, hopefully he'll catch a whiff and come exploring? Good luck and ignore the moronic idiots who clearly have no feelings x

Have emailed link to friend near Jamaica Inn in Draynes valley. Think Colliford Lake Rd is on that side of A30? Hope you find Oscar v soon. If I'm down there later this week will keep eyes peeled.

Some people are really thoughtless and selfish. Dont let this stop you! Keep up the good work
Michelleand Jon
Would you believe this I has just had a phone call from Cornwall Council. Someone has phoned and complained about the posters I have put up and littering cos some may have been blown off. I go round and pick any up that have been blown off and replace them with new posters. As if it is not bad enough that Oscar is missing some small minded person wants to complain.
Michelleand Jon
There was nothing yesterday. I was out there all day, asking people and giving them flyers. The lady that rang with the sighting could only tell me (in broken English) that it was the Colliford Lake road. The problem being this road is about 3 miles long on the moor. If this was Oscar she saw then he could be holing up anywhere along here, in the trees or under a gorse bush. I'll be out there again searching later.Last edited: 2011-06-01 11:25:35 by Michelleand Jon

Oscar is in the newspapers again this week. If you are in the area, or know someone in the area, please share Oscars page. He may have been taken in by someone locally as the sightings have stopped, or he may have moved further afield.
Thanks x
DogLost VolunteerMoogie
I'm so sorry he's still missing, my heart goes out to you both. Keep up the good work. Hoping he's home very soon x
Michelleand Jon
It's hard, him not being here, having cuddles and sleeping at the bottom of our bed, making his way under the quilt. Life feels empty without him so thats why were never going to give up. I have faith that we will get him home its just a matter of finding him first.
Reynard
Good luck Michelle and John for a happy reunion with the gorgeous Oscar, you are working so hard to get your boy home xxx
Michelleand Jon
Hi Janni, yes I have joined Paddy come home fb group, poor old boy needs to be home with his family. Thank you for sharing Oscar's info. It means alot to us all the help we are getting, thank you all so much.

I have been told today is your 1st Birthday Oscar- so make a wish to go home x Happy birthday Lad x

Gutted that wasn't your boy, but glad he has been reunited with his owner. Keeping all my fingers crossed for you. Come on Oscar show yourself x
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Have moved the found lad over. Fingers crossed that the next time it IS Oscar who is coming safely home xxx Same as Janni, we wont give up looking x
janni0706
I am so sorry, I really did think he sounded very like him. I feel awful when I think I am passing on good news. It is great this one has been reunited and we can find your dog, I wont give up until he is found and others will keep searching too x
Michelleand Jon
I travelled to see this young boy http://www.doglost.co.uk/dog_blog.php?dogId=28619
but this isn't my Oscar. Good news is though he has been reunited with his owner. I have text Jane to move him over to reunited.
DogLostglynafon
So sorry the found spaniel is not him, it certainly sounded so similar I was getting quite excited!

could this be him ?

I have emailed the springer rescue and attached a photo of Oscar. Thank you for telling me about them. No news as yet from the paper but hopefully there will be something.
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Bumping due to Oscar being in the paper again today. please keep looking out for this boy and pass his info on to anyone you know in the area. hoping for some new and good news of him to bring him safely home xxx
Flo
Hi yeah def worth checking them all, shame he wasn't your boy. Have you registered him miss with http://www.springerrescue.org.uk/? Really hope your add in the paper again brings some fresh news x
Michelleand Jon
Hi Flo, the found springer 28541 isn't my Oscar. It maybe another area but I try to check them all as someone may have picked him up and taken him anywhere in the country. Thanks for looking x
Flo
Hi have you seen there is now a photo of found springer 28451 on here wrong area but I know you wanted to rule him out x
Michelleand Jon
We scent every day leading to our house and hang a t-shirt I slept in the night before on the gate. I have called woodside today and emailed gables. The local firing range officer has been contacted and a poster put up in their gate. The army are not on manouvers yet but will be in touch when they come to Davidstow. Oscar should be in the paper again tomorrow, hopefully someone will call. Went to see a springer found in Redruth today but it wasn't my boy. I have contacted the radio station and advertised him though.
Flo
Being rural does make it so much more difficult, I live on dartmoor so know what its like. Dont give up hope. Have you tried scenting at all?, some people on here have found that really helpful. Also have you been ringing all the rescue centres regularly, even the ones in plymouth like Woodside and Gables, just incase someone picked him up and took him to one. What about the Army training and the firing ranges-maybe worth trying to contact them to keep a look out when they are training on the moor x
Michelleand Jon
With no sightings I really don't know where to look next as we are so rural. It's been 5 weeks now and it's not getting any easier. Jon is going to put posters at Kivell's farmers sale/auction this week just incase Oscar is on a farm somewhere.
Flo
Really hope you get some more news soon, your doing a fab job x x x x
Michelleand Jon
We haven't had any further calls, even with the newspaper adds that have covered all of Cornwall. We have put the reward up to see if this helps.
DogLostRiverlady, Twitter Co-ordinator

Oscar is back in the newspapers today, hopefully this will jog someones memory and bring news and fresh sightings. come on Oscar, show yourself again, its time to go home xxx

Keeping my fingers crossed for Oscar and his family!!! I hope he is found real soon!!! LOL

Hope Oscar comes home soon. Have been keeping an eye out for him.

Great news! good luck Oscar come home soon now xx

Really pleased there's been a sighting and sounds quite promising. I've shared on facebook.
Flo
So pleased theres been another sighting of Oscar, keep checking on this little lad everyday. Time to come home oscar. Wishing you luck Michelle and Jon, keep up the fantastic work x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts
Keep going, keep postering, you are doing well. Dogs are amazing and their survival instincts kick in when left to fend for themselves. He was probably having a little adventure and realised he'd strayed a little too far. He's out there waiting for you to find him. God bless you little Oscar, come on home now sweetie, your owners need you back.Last edited: 2011-03-03 21:27:00 by Kimmybear - Area Co-ordinator Essex and Herts

bumping due to possible sighting
Michelleand Jon
We have had call call from a lady that thinks she saw Oscar yesterday, just outside St Breward in the field opposite the church. She was looking for a black and white dog until she saw the poster then called us. She is going to walk her female dog in that area from now on to try to entice him. We have been and done the scenting around that area and been walking there till it got dark. Fingers crossed someone will grab him so we can have him home.
DogLost VolunteerMoogie
Sorry theres been no sign of Oscar. Keep up the good work. Wish i was closer to help but thinking about him, hoping he's home soon
Flo
Really sorry to see this boy is still missing, I was praying that extra walkers around in half term would have meant this boy would have been found this week. Really hope you get another sighting x
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Michelle and Jon have spent the last two nights up where Oscar was last seen finishing with a bbq at dawn. No signs of him at all. Any help locally would really be appreciated. Widening the area of postering in case Oscar has kept moving and generally making people aware that he is missing, we really need some fresh sightings of him to try and pinpoint the area where he is staying x
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Sending you lots of luck and positivity tonight Michelle and Jon. An all night vigil where Oscar was last sighted and a tasty and smelly bbq to hopefully lure him in along with some scenting. Come on Oscar its time for you to find your mum and dad, they want to take you safely home where its warm and dry xxx
Flo
Keep checking on this beautiful boy, really hope he is found soon x

So pleased there's been some sightings. I've updated facebook group 'please look out for these missing dogs in cornwall'. Hope he's home soon
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
It is believed that Oscar is around the colliford/warleggan/millpool firing range area, 4 seperate sightings and all seem to place him in around this area.
Bumping again due to sightings.
Michelleand Jon
Yes we are very rural. We have informed all the local farmers that Oscar is missing. Also the north Cornwall hunt have been informed and are looking for him as they would be able to get to places on the moor on horseback better than foot. Thank you for sharing information on facebook I'm trying to get everyone I know who lives in Cornwall to do the same.
DogLostESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire
Bumping due to possible sighting. Owners had a call from a lady who thinks she may have seen him over near Colliford lake playing with some other dogs, owners have postered farms locally just in case anyone sees him. fingers crossed the weekend will bring us some good news and Oscar is soon safely back home xLast edited: 2011-02-19 11:01:38 by ESSJ - Area Co-ordinator Bedfordshire

Sorry to hear Oscar is missing. I have shared his information on the facebook group 'please look out for these missing dogs in cornwall'. I hope he's home soon
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
I am assuming it's quite rural where you are? Are there any farm buildings or anything of that nature near you that he could have got shut in to? Would be worth asking any neighbouring properties to check outbuildings/sheds too. Hope he's home soon x
