Thank you!!

Wow — thank you all so much for your offers of help both here and by email! By the end of yesterday, we reached 30+ vets, animal hospitals, and shelters, and people are still going today! Many of the offices knew Mari well, even though we haven’t done outreach at this scale in a while, which was comforting. They appreciated having new information about her so they can continue to keep an eye out. Others said they would continue to spread the word to their colleagues to see if she was brought in. At this point, I think we’re all set with vet/shelter outreach (we have ACOs covered, as well Cathie arranged to have a fresh SABER alert issued to all ACOs in MA with updated sighting information) — thank you again!!

The biggest challenge with this lead is that if it’s true, we’ll hopefully find her through all of this outreach, but if it isn’t, it’s *really* hard to eliminate, so we’re just giving it our best shot and hoping to get some new information. There are two ways to approach this: 1) try to find the vet or vet tech who treated her if she was brought in or 2) try to find whoever helped her. For the latter, we’re just trying to spread the word as widely as possible, so any sort of Facebook or #marisolsearch Twitter posts would be terrific. And if she wasn’t brought in and this is a false lead? Hopefully we’ll find out through a fresh lead and can then close this one.

We’ve spent so much time wishing we could rewind the clock to that day and cancel Mari’s walk or do something different that would have changed the outcome of her getting lost. We’ve also spent so much time marveling at how kind and generous people have been and continue to be in this search. Loads of love are coming your way, Mari. And, if we can make it happen, piles of those stinky lamb and blueberry treats you love so much. With peanut butter.

    Anindita we all wish we could turn back the clock at one point in our lives, but the blame lies on the person who had the aggressive dog that attacked the walking group in the first place, obviously the dog should not have been around other dogs or people for that matter without being unleashed. Mari will return to you and Andrew stay strong and stop beating yourself up, sometimes things just happen thats all. Just a thought how about a full length photo in the local newspaper with the latest info? I have seen that in our local paper when pets go missing, just an idea.

    Great, great news! How is now best to post on our FB pages — I can’t seem to find a Marisol page to “like” that I had before the FB changes.

    I sending the best vibes that this leads to a terrific reunion~

    Great news! So hopeful…a dog was just rescued with GSDR after almost a year. Maybe a post to facebook from Find Marisol would be good. Sending love to you all.

  4. Wow, just popped by on a whim and saw the update! I’ve been thinking about Mari here and there since I first started visiting your page when she went missing. I’m in NYC, but do have plenty of friends and dog lovers in the Boston area. Will try and get the word out to see if I can help track down the folks who may have picked her up!

    Hi – I’m a little confused – someone who knew of Mari brought her to a vet? Why didn’t they contact you? Or did someone hear of a dog brought to the vet that fit Mari’s description? Is the dog still at a vet somewhere? I’m happy to reach out to vets in the area – my vet is Winter Hill, and I also board my cats at VCA in Arlington (they’re cats, but they may know something) – but am not sure what to ask about – just a little confused. Please let me know and I’m happy to help!

    Any news? I’ve been hoping and praying so hard that she will be on her way home to you soon. Fingers, toes and everything else crossed. xxxxx

  7. Jane says:

    Me too! If you decide to expand the outreach to vets & shelters and/or poster the last known sighting area, I’m available to help.

    A woman from my church told me yesterday that has seen a dog resembling Marisol several times in the past month in the area of Woburn Street in Lexington. I had given her family a poster when Marisol first went missing but she didn’t have it with her. She said it was early in the morning so perhaps people who travel in that vicinity on their way to work could keep an eye out for her. I gave this person a small business-size card of Marisol and asked her to call with any further sightings. I’m so hoping it was Marisol!

    Any updates? I live in upstate NY and have been checking the blog since Mari went missing. I hope she is found soon, very soon.
