Karin is gone, but the search for Piper continues

As most of you know, Karin and her tracking dogs had to leave early this morning so we won't be getting updates from her any longer. Karin on;y stays out with her dogs for 5 days and she was in Galena since last Sunday. She was tired and her pups were tired. We are so thankful for the work she did, the hope she gave us and the information she left us with.
Maribeth from Wire Fox Terrier Rescue Midwest and her husband are in Galena. They cannot continue the work Karin was doing--no one really can without tracking dogs, but she is continuing to get the word out there. At this point we have to pray that Piper makes herself known to someone--that someone sees her--it's the only hope we have to get her back home. It's snowing tonight in Galena. Pray for the little girl.

Here is an update about Maribeth--

She is staying over in Galena until tomorrow afternoon. She has been busy if you knew Maribeth that wouldn't surprise you-LOL She had over 160 new flyers made. Gary and his wife took some and She took some. She drove all over the rural roads and put her flyers in or on Mail boxes. I know this isn't legal but she did it anyway. She put them each in a zip lock bag because it was raining. They are now distributed Every where and each farm home has one. She talked to everyone in town, bar, restaurants, shops you name it she stopped. She also talked to some people who were outside when she stopped at their mail box. One very nice man said he walks the woods 5 miles everyday and he will watch for Piper. Another man who used to live in Chicago promised to watch for her too. She took some flyers to a company that delivers propane to all of the farm homes. They are going to give their drivers a flyer to look for Piper She just told them to call day or night if they see her. Chris the mail lady promised to go get her or take her Lab and go find her if there is a sighting. Maribeth talked to Chris today and really liked her. She also met her friend Abby who is a dog handler and can pick up Chris's dog any time she needs her and Chris isn't around. Abby is young and has a lot of dog knowledge. She also is going to keep searching.
We have covered this area to the MAX and will continue to keep looking for our Piper. Maribeth feels and I agree that we Have to have someone see Piper and we need to get her face out there and let everyone possible know we are looking for her. I believe she also talked to a couple of UPS drivers who deliver packages in the area.

You know that we're not giving up. Until Piper would be 17 or 18 years old, we'll stay convinced she is out there somewhere. And that someday she'll show up. Sooner, hopefully, than later. It's the only way we can get through this.

Much love
Jake and Fergi (who is getting LOTS of hugs and lectures ... seems Moma has always had a fear that this very same thing could happen to little Fergs)
