Lost Dog on Ochil Hills

Lost Dog on Ochil Hills


Postby Eskimo » Sun Mar 01, 2015 5:21 pm

After being up innerdownie today I poppped into the Tormoukin for a coffee. Couple of other walkers asked if I had seen the Alsaition dog up there. I hadn't but decided to go back up and try find it.

No joy im afraid. Anyone up that area could perhaps keep an eye out? It was last spotted after the dyke leading to the final climb to the summit.

I left a few bits of food where it was sighted along with what the other walkers left. Hopefully keep it going a few days if it finds it.

If anyone is going up for the intention of a wee hunt around let me know and I'll come help again.

Hi Eskimo, the dog is home with me safe and well. I lost her on Saturday afternoon when she chased something into the fog! I returned yesterday morning at first daylight and eventually found her near the summit of Innerdownie around 11:30 after what must have been a horrendous night up there . Thanks to all concerned :clap: :clap: :clap:

Hope she is well and is having a lovely rest today!

Yeah, there were footprints in the snow when we got to Innerdowie but never seen anybody all morning to ask if they had spotted her. We had parked at Glenquey reservoir and made our down the glen towards Dollar and up on to Tarmangie hill. It wasn't until we were heading back to Innerdowie that we spotted her. But she's back home with our other GSD that didn't get lost!!! :D
