    I've just seen a border collie in my back garden, we dashed out there but it was gone, another two women had also spotted it, but it's literally vanished :(. The most worrying thing, and the reason we are all looking for it was the state it was in, it was so distressed, panting and gasping :(. I'm so worried for it, especially if it keeps running in this heat :(

    I've gone out with my son, and the other two women are looking too, but it's literally disappeared :(. It ran in a fenced garden, so it should have been trapped, but it had gone. There are so many ways it could have run once out of the garden too :(. I'm going to keep going out and looking for it though. The other women got nearer and they said its very nervous.

    Thanks Hun, I will do, there's still no sign of him/her though :(. If you could bob it on your Facebook too that would be great, just to see if none has lost a collie or collie cross :)

    You don't think he could have collapsed in someone's garden do you as no-one can see him? Just a thought. Hope someone does see him and can catch him.

    I doubt it was that one, apart from the panting it's coat was lovely and it wasn't underweight, I would think it would be in poorer condition if it had been missing for 10 days. I've been out several times this afternoon, I just hope he's found his way home or been tracked down, he's definitely an owned dog though, he was also wearing a collar as I could see at least one tag.

    I did think that, I've searched all the nearby gardens, and I've put a bowl of water out just in case he comes back though.
