I have found that you can also phone in for a form to nominate Jenny & Tiga for an Animal Honours Award - presume you will speak to a machine rather than a real person (!) as they say to make sure you include a postal address ...

Hee hee! I have shared the link on all sorts of Fbk pages and it seems to be attracting a lot of interest! Hope lots of people nominate Jenny and Tiga for the award. Also hoping that Misty in E Sussex will be one of the next ones to be reunited.

Just rang the amazing Jenny and Tiga...who are quite overwhelmed by your comments...and the lady is 79 years old...go for it girls....fill in that form...tx
DogLostJayne - Administrator, Head Office
Nominations must come from individuals not doglost...I am sure owners age was mentioned in one of the articles...if not ring...can I leave this with you good people to circulate and support as so many calls with missing dogs coming in that I have to action...tx...so use your facebook,twitter friends etc and lets get that award for our wonderful trackers...
hayley
Great to see an article in our local paper THE IPSWICH STAR yesterday evening 28/01/13 it was lovely to see Maisie and she looked so well. This story has certaintly touched a lot of people and lots of press attention it seems which can only be a good thing. It will certaintly highlight the hard work that DOGLOST does.
Belle
There is an online nomination form at http://www.itv.com/beontv/british-animal-honours/

However, we need to know the name, age and contact details of the owners! Maybe do it c/o Doglost? Will email admin for advice...
Tiga
Just seen an article in the Eastern Daily Press

Maisie - you are famous!
Belle
Great Idea Jayne! email animals@whizzkidproductions.tv
asap and you will be sent a nomination form. Let's get Tiga and Wispa (and their amazing handlers)into the spotlight for their sake and for Doglost!
emilykate444
yes phebe and wispa deserve one to
DogLostJayne - Administrator, Head Office
Well said...

Could I just remind you that we have another wonderful tracker dog called Wispa. Anyone thinking of nomining Tiga might like to nominate the DogLost dog tracking team as a whole.
DogLostJayne - Administrator, Head Office
SCroll down to post made at 09.50 to get application form for Jenny and Tiga...please crosspost with link to Maisies page so everyone can vote for them.
DogLostHelen - Area Co-ordinator, Norfolk, Suffolk & Cambridge
It's fantastic that Jenny and Tiga are getting the recognition they truly deserve because if it wasn't for these 2 I think it would have been a different outcome but can I just say again a hugh thank you to all the helpers and searchers who were out in the awful conditions before Jenny was able to get to us xx

emilykate444
id like to vote for jenny and tiga to get an award i know jenny and tiga through beaglesuk and have met her and searched for a doggie with her and i think its brillient what they both do for lost doggies and there owners
Tiga
I am just over the moon with how much this story has touched the hearts of so many and I cannot believe these comments on this Dog Lost page. It is incredible how much a dog means to not only the owner but to everyone else. Tiga is truly a dog in a million and I am so so proud of him. Thankyou everyone, it is great to be part of Dog Lost and to be part of a fantastic team. xx
There is also an article on Page 4 of the Daily Mirror today and Life with Dogs!
Team Beagle Lost & Found
I would just like to say it is brilliant Maisie is home safe and well. Jenny and Tiga (and her 2 other beagles) are members of our group, and work tirelessly all over the country to help reunite lost dogs with their owners. She has found many of our missing beagles (who generally do NOT do recall and can follow a scent for many miles), and Jenny very rarely boasts or brags about her achievements. Did you also know that prior to coming to search for Maisie she had spent 5 very cold nights camping in Dorset in the snow/blizzards in the search for Bella beagle who has been missing siince 6/1/13. Well done Tiga & Jenny from all at Team Beagle Lost & Found xxx
DogLostJayne - Administrator, Head Office
email in admin.....the more requests they get the more likely we can get Tiga the award....he and owner Jenny deserve it...

Such a wonderful and heartwarming story I am so delighted Jenny and Tiga managed to find Maisie so she could be returned to her lovely owner. Just the best story of the year so far ! Julie x

Wonderful news. Well done Jenny, and Tiga. So pleased that Maisie is back home. Stay safe now Maisie:-) PS Best thing for walking on ice is to wear THICK socks over your shoes/boots. I was told this, I tried it, and it works. (Socks stick to the ice).
Rog
Heard an interview this afternoon on Radio Suffolk with Maisie's owner which would have been a great opportunity to give a mention of Doglost. I've emailed the station to ask if a "plug" could be given in a future programme. You all deserve huge credit.

Thanks emmalouise, knew I'd seen it somewhere! I've emailed Nik to see if she can get Tiga (and Jenny) the recognition they deserve.

What a wonderful story. Someone mentioned that Tiga deserves an award and it made me think of something I read that Paul O'Grady (I think) is doing special pet awards. If Tiga could get a an award, which he SOOOO deserves, it would publicise Doglost too. Does anyone else know how to get him nominated?
bullt
That is a great idea about your belt - would really have solved this problem. I must look it up for myself ! x
Tiga
While reuniting Maisie with her owner I showed her my canicross style waist belt and line and a friend has one and is going to give it to her. This will allow her to walk with Maisie on a lead which is secured to a special belt around her waist allowing her also to have 2 hands free to steady herself as well.
Belle
Thanks for your post Alison (Clanhume) - a really simple solution that would have saved Maisie and her owner from a lot of trauma.

I have been spreading the news on this story to other Cairn Terrier owners via a Yahoo Group, and we have been chatting about these leads. Some of the American members of the group highly recommend this for use with the extendable lead, and I hope someone may be able to tell Margaret, Maisie's owner about this, it may help her in future and stop her worrying http://www.keepumsafe.com/ I have problems myself so I am going to get some, so if she wants some help to get one I will assist
Alison :)

Was so pleased to see Maisie is home. The worry is overwhelming (I know from my own experience). I think Jenny and Tiga should be put forward for a doggy award. I'm sure he got something yummy being a beagle!!!! Such a heart warming story in todays miserable moaning society of kindness and generosity. Big smiles :)
DogLostHelen - Area Co-ordinator, Norfolk, Suffolk & Cambridge
I have just spoken to Margaret and Maisie is fine, she has been to the vets and had a few ticks removed and has lost some weight but apart from this she is doing ok.
The East Anglian Daily Times has been in contact and will be running a story on Maisie hopefully next week.

Jenny thank you for the update, I'm sure you have read through all the comments and realise what stars you and Tiga are xx Such a heart warming story and I for one am so grateful for you coming over to search for Maisie.
I would also like to thank everybody who helped to search for Maisie in the awful conditions over the week.
Maisie is one very lucky girl xxx
Tiga
I am so so delighted for Maisies owner, who did not think she would see Maisie again and I gather it took some convincing when Helen called her to tell her the good news. To see her face as I handed Maisie over to her was just magic! Maisie was going to the vet today but to be honest it was more to check for ticks, she was in such good nick and when I picked her up off the ground she was warm. I am just so glad I was able to come and find Maisie and I am so proud of Tiga. I have just sent DL a picture of the reunion. This must give all other dog owners hope who have lost their dogs - they are tough little cookies.
skippy
My goodness - what a fantatsic result - well done Jenny and Tiga! What a tough little girl Maisie is too - welcome home little lady! :)))) xxxx

I asked the same question on the fb group and this was Jenny's reply (hope it's ok to paste?)......

"She was about 50m in from the path , a little way after the first bench on the north boundary path going anticlockwise. Her lead was wrapped round bracken about a dozen times and we found her I just picked her up and cuddled her".

Paw
Just keep checking now for update after her visit to the vet, sure she will be fine. Also hoping to hear from Jenny & Tiga about where she was found as we covered quite a bit of ground last Saturday when searching - but it was a "needle in a haystack" feeling. Don't know how far you travelled Jenny but so good of you to, especially with the weather so cold. After last week's search I don't think she would have been found without you and Tiga.
hayley
How can we all say how pleased we are that maisie is safe and home. It beggers belief how she survived this cruel weather for 7nights. Its an absoulutely amazing ending, I never thought i'd see that this morning when i checked her page. Well done and what brilliant work by all those people that searched so hard,and to Jenny and Tiga you are angels. SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS HOW PLEASED WE ALL ARE. :):):):):):):):):):)xxxxxx
bullt
Only really to echo what you have all said - can't believe how fantastic Jenny & her 'super snooper' Tiga have been. I am over the moon - over lots of moons ! It will definitely be a top highlight of 2013 to know this little girl is safe and warm now and am sure Maisie & her owner will have had the best cosy evening back at home together again. x x

Was she found far away from where she went missing? such a happy ending!

I do love a happy ending - and this is wonderful. What a brilliant effort from everyone and especially Jenny & Tiga.

I'd also like to say a special thank you to the NT warden who joined Jenny on search today. It may have been hearing them talking which started Maisie off barking.

Maisie looked as though she'd just been out for a walk... no real signs of having been out for 7 nights! Amazing... Margaret has collected Maisie and is overwhelmed with all the help and support she's rec'd. She'll take Maisie to the vets tomorrow to get her checked out, but other than a few ticks, she looks well and healthy x

Just went to 2nd page of "lost" and couldn't see her, hardly dare check "reunited" but what a brilliant outcome. Well done Jenny & Tiga!

Tiga you are one special little beagle, and Jenny how kind of you to come all this way to help. Wonderful news you must have been so thrilled to find her for Margaret. I have been really worried about little Maisie out on her own. Hip-Hip-Hooray for Jenny and Tiga you are super stars. xxxx

Another appeal has gone out on Radio Suffolk today, hopefully this will bring us some news x
iheartwhippets
I just came back from a walk along the North boundary walk, past where she was lost - as it's such a still day, I thought I may be able to hear her. Nothing. There are no posters left within the heath (that I saw) - either someone has removed them, or the terrible conditions last night blew them away. I'll try to go out again later and put a few more up.
Rog
Sorry she hasn't been found yet. Will poster in our village today and try to get out to Dunwich asap.
Sarah Jane
posted along roads and areas off NT today at pull offs / car park areas where people park up and walk from , we also walked from top end of NT near to entrance and met people handed out small cards..stay safe little Maisie ,is anyone able to set up a FB page for her ? it worked well for Bella for non dog lost people to keep in touch ....xx

Has anyone checked out the sheds the fisherman use ? They may have gap a cairn could get in. A lot of missing dogs also tend to stay in woods. So maybe worth doing Bar B Q in wooded area x

Maisie's owner has asked me to thank you all for helping with Maisie, she has no internet access but is aware of how many people are trying to find Maisie
THANK YOU EVERYBODY xx

A friend and myself have walked round the Northern side of the Gorse walk and gone 'off piste' quite a bit as well. We went across the little bridge - down in a corner near the rather swamp like area and through the woodland there - off the NT land - followed that path but doubled back and went over land parallel to the NT pathway, part of that circular walk. No luck unfortunately, but met lots of others who know and were either actively looking or were going to keep an eye out on their walks. There is plenty of shelter. I so hope there will be a sighting soon to give us a good idea of where to go and where to set up a barbecue ! x
beardies in need
I have trap, nets , night vision etc but no good without sightings in same area. And Jane at pampered pets is a little closer. She also breed cairns. Poor little dog out there in this awful cold weather. We have our beardie ramble there so I know area well. Poster as much as poss get lots help on foot but please don't call her name this will send her away. Do food statains if seen to keep in in area. Bar B Q garlic sausage the smell travel and bring them out. Also use smelly tinned fish. Don't give up. They tend to stay to a triangle. Really hope there's sightings today bless her. Good luck.

The heather where is was last seen has loads of ditches and grooves, so hopefully she's managed to burrow in one of those... I imagine with the dense brush and snow, she'll be kept warm and out of the wind.

Just to add that I have been in touch with Suffolk Police. Although sympathetic, there were unable to help. They have no contacts for Search and Rescue for missing dogs.

Sarah Jane in answer to your questions yes Maisie is micro-chipped and yes the Dog Warden has been contacted, all local vets in the area have been notified and also Pampered Pets.
Maisie's retractable lead is red.

I have advised the owner to contact Radio Suffolk to do another appeal and also contact the Micro-chip company.

Maisie could well be sheltering from the weather so the search is continuing in the area she went missing. Some dogs do go to ground and are not seen at all when they first go missing.

I contacted http://www.sulsar.org.uk They only deal in humans but they have advised to go through Suffolk Police. I don't know if anyone has contacted the police???

Poor Maisie, has anyone tried contacting http://www.sardaengland.org.uk/ They are a lowland search and rescue and have volunteers all over. They usually search for missing persons but maybe one of the volunteers would help as a training excercise. Worth a call. Good luck to everyone searching today.

Maisie ran from the spot I marked on the map directly through the dense heather - running South. On Friday several volunteers tried to comb the heather, but if anyone knows the area, you will understand how difficult this is. We had hoped that all the volunteers would go back to that area and do the same, as it's unlikely she would have gotten out of the heather - unless Maisie managed to break free from her collar and lead.

To date:

Weds eve - Myself, Warden, Owner and 2 others searched the area and all the paths surrounding it.

Weds pm - Owner's friend and one other searched the area in the dark

Thurs am - I searched the paths and woodland to the east of the walk - informed the Postman & holiday makers

Thurs am - Owner's friend searched caravan area and Dunwich Forest - alerted Caravan Park, RSPB, Suffolk Wildlife, Wildlife Trust, etc

Thurs am - I printed posters and put them up where she was lost, on the NT info hut and gave several out to local shop, post office, etc

Thurs eve - NT Warden and several NT volunteers went searching in the area she was lost and the area up to Minsmere Road and then back via the beach

Fri am - Myself and 2 other volunteers searched the area and tried to comb the heather, then walked back via a new path

Others have been involved in the search and spreading the word, but I'm unsure where they have been or who they've alerted. I understand the local radio has been informed and I have emailed posters locally (but can't be sure they've been put up).

Hope this helps x

I spoke to the lady at pampered pets last night. She is already aware of Maisie. She kindly offered to set a trap if we have a sighting of her.
Paw
Area searched yesterday was within the Gorse walk, but I did go and check down by the reedbeds as well. My husband and dog walked further afield, mostly round the edge of the area where the main search was - so again following quite a bit of the gorse walk, they were out for about 4 hours altogether so covered quite a big area, although part of it was to and from Eastbridge. Might try and get to the caravan/campsite today and the woods through to Dunwich village. Will take cards with details to hand out again.
Sarah Jane
do we know yet if Maisie is microchipped ? if she is handed into vets /dog warden they have nothing to go on ...also has anyone contacted the dog warden yet? police ? local vets ? and the kennels strays/lost are taken ( somtimes its pampered pets at Wickenmarket).....now leaving to poster area and i will search more, also was she on a collar or a harness ?
bullt
If anyone can help today, there is a lot of information on the Nat Trust's website for Dunwich about the Dunwich Gorse walk mentioned by iheartwhippets - map and details
bullt
It seems like the threatened snow is not coming up our way until later tomorrow so am hoping to go out again in the morning. Several of us did also do the area marked on your map Paola. x
iheartwhippets
I understand that someone is giving the wrong information regarding where Maisie was lost. She was not lost near the reed beds, but further North along the Dunwich Gorse walk (http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/things-to-see-and-do/view-page/item484084/245013/). Margaret, Maisie's owner took me to the site where Maisie ran off on the evening that she went missing, so I am absolutely sure of where it is. I have sent maps out and took several volunteers to the area on Friday. Unfortunately, I'm unwell today, so couldn't join in the search, however I've been told that the search happened in the wrong area due to misinformation... It's a shame
Sarah Jane
we all had a good search and was nice to put faces to names ... sadly no Masie yet , also i didnt see one poster driving in so in the morning i will go and poster and also poster local villages etc i will also take a walk about same area ...one thought is owner visiting daily? as i was told masie is walked there everyday i wonder if Masie is returning to the car park area or in the area waiting for owner and the familar car ....
DogLostHelen - Area Co-ordinator, Norfolk, Suffolk & Cambridge
Sadly there has been no news today after the search, but thank you to everyone that went out to help. We must continue to spread the word on Maisie postering and speaking to people in the area and also further a field incase she has been picked up by somebody who doesn't live in the immediate area.
DogLostLisaR - Area Volunteer, Suffolk
It's so sad, I really thought we stood a better chance with the amount of people searching. I guess we can only hope that she has slipped her collar.....
hayley
I really hope maisie is found safe and well.
mollynoodles
Have searched am with our six dogs and again this afternoon but sadly there is no sign of Maisie. As Paw said, it's a mystery as she can't have got far with a heavy retracting lead bouncing along behind her. Feel desperately sorry for her owner who must be distraught.
carol
Quite a few people turned up despite the bitter cold, a good search was made, but absolutely no sign of Maisie at all. A lot of cards were given out, and a number of people are now aware of Doglost, who were not aware before. All credit to the searchers, they told everyone in the vicinity about the little dog, and trudged through bracken and ditches. Might be worth alerting Waveney Council, just in case she has been picked up. Stay safe, Little one.
Paw
Walked over from Eastbridge this morning, and met up with searchers. We all trudged through heather but found nothing. I walked back along the track where she had been walked day she went missing, saw some tracks through slushy/icy water to reedbeds but don't think they were dog tracks and certainly no sign of trailing lead. Also had a look along beach, was going to look around caravan site but had chance of lift home so sorry didn't do that. May go out that way again tomorrow. Gave out a few cards with basic details & phone number on so a few more people aware. May be worth checking with Dog Warden in case someone has picked her up and reported it. Minsmere closed this weekend so any people about will probably go Dunwich way instead, but roads are quite icy. It's quite a mystery because you wouldn't think she would get far with lead attached.
DogLostHelen - Area Co-ordinator, Norfolk, Suffolk & Cambridge
A search started today at 11.30 unfortunately the web-site was down this morning so I couldn't post any details.
If anybody is able to join the search please phone the number on the poster.
mollynoodles
I will come along too at 11.30. Will look out for your truck.
Sarah Jane
great will meet at coastguard cottages,maybe bit late tho i have a silver navara truck with pink paws on it so you cant miss me ! snowing here at mo :( live near to snape but it not heavy xx
HeatherP
Planning to be there 11.30. No overnight snow where we are, fingers crossed the same is true in Dunwich.
DogLostLisaR - Area Volunteer, Suffolk
I should be able to get there for 11.30, weather dependant. I shall be bringing hubby. I turned off of the minsmere road at the Dunwich heath turning and kept driving until I reached the coastguard cottages? I shall also check back in the morning. Fingers crossed x
Sarah Jane
I can make tomorrow for a search, will hopefully have husband and daughter in tow too ! i will check back in the morning if someone can just say where to meet up , agree with lisar a line of walkers sounds good (and a squeaky toy !)
bullt
Thanks Lisar - been in touch with P via texts. Not a lot we can do until tomorrow when we see how the snow / roads etc are. Perhaps we could meet 11 or 12 ? which would give us a chance to muster some helpers and still give us several hours. As she is a small dog she should have plenty of shelter there despite the cold.
mollynoodles
So sorry haven't been able to help so far due to sudden illness. Can help tomorrow if someone wants to give idea of time to meet and I'll be there. Fingers crossed still.
DogLostLisaR - Area Volunteer, Suffolk
Bullt- If you could email Paola on home@paolamarra.com, she lives on the Heath. She knows the owner and Maisie. We met her today and she took us to the exact spot where the owner fell.
bullt
If there is going to be an organised search for Maisie tomorrow - weather permitting, I'm sure we could muster quite a good few people locally. I guess it depends on the snow tonight. Carol & I went out this afternoon but only saw a lot of red deer - it was difficult not knowing exactly where the walk had started and whereabouts Maisie escaped from.
Magnscruff
A friend of mine lost their Cairn terrier a few months ago and she was missing for 2 days. She had no recall either. after numerous trips out calling her etc, they took a squeaky toy and she appeared from under a hedge. They had been past this hedge loads of times and she hadn't shown herself. As soon as the toy was squeaked she appeared, not far from where she had gone missing. I also have a Cairn and he has bad recall but he will come for a squeaky toy. It's worth a try to carry one with you when you're round the area, she may just appear.
iheartwhippets
PS - my mobile reception is very bad at the moment. If you're trying to contact me and I don't answer, please email me at home@paolamarra.com. Thanks.
iheartwhippets
It's started snowing here again... I'll pop out in a bit to clear the posters I put up yesterday. The Warden is out on the heath at the moment, so will keep an eye out. Paola
DogLostLisaR - Area Volunteer, Suffolk
I've just got back from searching with 2 others.....due to the location it is extremely difficult for a couple of people to look. The area is full of dense gorse bushes with hardly any clearings. It would be more beneficial if we could get a large group of people together and basically walk in a line together, especially if she has been snagged with the lead. There is so much for her to get caught on and the bushes would be taller than Maisie.
DogLostHelen - Area Co-ordinator, Norfolk, Suffolk & Cambridge
There are people out searching again today but the weather is pretty bad, please take care.
Another appeal has gone out on Radio Suffolk
Thank you to everybody who is helping to spread the word x
Nelsie
I've informed the Wangford vets and if she turns up and not microchipped they have my phone number. Just off out again and will look for her again.
Paw
Didn't get to put any posters up, but most dog-owners in Eastbridge know and will be looking when out with there dogs. I've printed up some small cards with basic details and owners phone number which I will give to anyone I see when out with my dog. Hopefully will walk over to Dunwich Heath tomorrow with lots of cards to give out to any walkers that may be around. Have found email address for campsite so will email them and will drop some cards off tomorrow if I get that far.
Nelsie
I live at Potton Hall on the edge of the Dunwich Forest. I think I know Maisie from our dog training club and her owner. I hope they are both ok. I've only just heard about this but have been out and about in the forest with my two little dogs off the lead and have seen no sign of Maisie. I'm sure they would have run to her if they'd seen/smelled her. I will continue to search and let everyone I know about her being lost.
Lou-BJ
Have shared on my fb, will share again. Been housebound today. Has anyone contacted BBC radio Suffolk to see if they could put on radio. If havent I'll do tomorrow. Has owner got any recent pics do we know? Here's hoping Maisie is spotted & found soon xxx
HeatherP
Shared on FB. Also free on Saturday if volunteers needed for searching.
Sarah Jane
will start sharing on FB, i am free Saturday if anyone wants to get a search together ~ there is a camp site with Lodges etc... near to road entrance which leads to coastguard cottages, can anyone contact them, stay safe Masie xx
HeatherP
I don't know if this would help anyone who can search but doesn't walk here routinely ... a map of the walks on the National Trust website http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/things-to-see-and-do/view-page/item484084/245013/ Last edited: 2013-01-17 19:44:54 by HeatherP
carol
I have informed The RSPB wardens and they are keeping a watch for her, also several people in the Westleton area who walk the heath, keep safe little lady.
snufflepuppy
If there is any shrubbery or bushes in the region I would try checking there. One of my dogs once ran off with extending lead attached and I found her quite a few gardens away with it snagged round a rose bush.
bullt
Got a text from owner at 2.45 to say she was last seen on the north side of the round walk - from the old Coast guard cottages. They were putting up posters then.
A friend of mine walked towards the NT area from the bird reserve end with her dogs but no sign. Unfortunately I am home too late - light wise - to get across there now and help search. Hope Maisie will have come across a kind rescuer by now.
mollynoodles
I tried to contact owner but no reply. Dunwich Heath is a vast area so does need narrowing down where exactly she was last seen. Also the colour of retractable lead would help. A flash of red or blue is easier to spot on the Heath than Cairn terrier coat colour. Will help search tomorrow am if no news. Fingers crossed. Last edited: 2013-01-17 16:20:22 by mollynoodles

I have alerted the members of the cairnterriertalk forum about Maisie.
sarah
Will hand out posters at my dog training classes tonight. I am about 30 miles further down coast near Ipswich but owners may just have friends or relatives in the area
Unknown
Working today and tomorrow morning but will join the search tomorrow afternoon if not already found. An exact location of where she went missing would narrow he search a bit.

Mollynoodles thank you for offering to help, it is probably best to contact the owner direct for further details on where to search x
Thank you everyone who is helping with this little one x

posters printed and going up in IP17 1UY areas , need to find this little one its very cold out there XXXX
mollynoodles
Any updates on Maisie? I am heading out shortly and will look. Does anyone know if Maisie and her Mum were walking in the conservation area in Westleton, accessed via bakers lane?

Not sure exactly where Maisie was lost.
Blade
will put alert in Community Newspapers with picture keep warm little maisie

Poster has been sent to all CVS vets practices in the area in case she is taken there. Hope you find her soon.

If not found before Saturday we will be out that way so will look out for her. Rough idea of where she ran from would be good e.g. car park, beach side of heath, or path over heath towards Weatleton/Minsmere Road. Will try to get some posters up around Minsmere & Eastbridge, probably won't be until tomorrow morning though.Last edited: 2013-01-17 10:30:03 by Paw
