Lost dog on A' Mharconaich area
by Merry-walker » Mon Jun 17, 2013 2:39 am
We were up here at A' Mharconaich and Geal Charn, Drumochter today and our beloved dog Benji has gone missing. We have searched and searched all day for him and are heading back again early on Monday 17th June to continue our search for him. He is a golden lab cross breed and very friendly towards people and other dogs. Please, please, please could you keep an eye open for him as he is very precious to us. He is wearing a blue collar and will seek out any person around.
We will be out every day until there is news, but please if any one can help us look for him or any sightings at all please phone us on 07954134169 (Ronnie - Doomsday) or me Jac Johnson on 07543618892 any time, day or night.
Thank you all xx

Having lost Bracken in the past, I really do know what you are going through, so hope that he turns up soon!

With the guys on the case I'm sure all will turn out well.
Please keep us posted and much luck, but I'm sure with thunderbird 1 on the case you will be reunited in no time

Shona and I swept up the NE shoulder with the dogs and worked with Spider to cover the steep craggy area on the NE face. No sign of Benji there which is probably a blessing.
The areas which will need more extensive searching are the lower E and SE aspects of the hill and the exit paths to the Coire Dhomhain that will be rich with human scent.
As Benji is 9yrs its unlkely that he would choose to ascend the path to Beinn Udlamain. He is fond of paths so could well have followed the path out of Coire Dhomhain past the Sow of Atholl and continued south towards Dalnaspidal Lodge.
Of course he may have found his way W off of A'Mharconaich and be scouting around the E shore of Loch Ericht.
Merry-walker has searched the area back onto Geal Charn and the paths heading N towards Creagan Mor with no luck.
I will try and head up again with my dog to search tomorrow if I can arrange time off. Really hope that Benji happens upon someone soon.

We're heading over to Sgaineach Mhor and Beinn Udlamain area plus down to Loch Ericht. Havent left the house yet. Living on thin air and virtually no sleep.
Keep you posted as much as I can.
