    Thanks everyone!

    It's really nice to know that there are other wonderful people out there caring for lost pets too.

    Share a book - A wolfhound! You sure it wasn't a horse? They are MASSIVE aren't they? Contacting vets was a great idea, I'd imagine that there aren't too many wolfhounds around?
    Staffies are great, I love how vocal they are! Always snorting and grunting and making god awful noises! It's hilarious!

    Chameleon - That's the worst part isn't it? Getting attached. Golden retrievers are so gorgeous too, it would be hard to give them back.

    Veve - Agreed, microchipping is needed!

    Sweetums - How lovely that the people came back to give you a gift!

    Muminmind - Aww thanks! I'll try and be more chatty on the main forum!

    Update (if anyone is interested)

    So it turns out that one of the staffies I took in was sick. It had kennel cough and now my dog is sick. My dog is fully vaccinated and I kept her separated from the staffies, however I wasn't aware of how highly contagious kennel cough is. I honestly thought I was taking reasonable precaution.

    It's a drag that she's become sick, I have to administer antibiotics and cough syrup 3 times a day for the next couple of weeks. However what is bugging me the most is that my Dad has commented, more than once, that 'this is what happens when you stick your neck out'.
    Essentially implying that I've done something wrong!
    Poor form, old man!

    Oh no! Poor Anankee!

    Sometimes doing the right thing does have unpleasant consequences but that doesn't mean it wasn't still the right thing to do.

    Aww I hope your dog gets better quickly!

    Good on you for taking the dogs in. My dogs escaping is one of my greatest fears - it's lovely to know there are people out there who help lost dogs while their owners hunt frantically for them.

    Thanks Cue. I wish my parents had that attitude!

    DH even said to Dad, 'Imagine how many other peoples pets would have gotten sick if they had just kept roaming around.'

    Oh of course you did the right thing My dog also went through a stage of escaping at one point (fixed the problem.) One day I came home and she was missing, and got a call from someone an hour away saying they had her. They had seen her running along the highway and picked her up. I was worried sick about her and was so grateful that they stopped

    Oh and my dogs have caught kennel cough before... it wasn't too bad from memory. Hope yours recovers quickly

    Chameleon - Gosh! That must have scared the pants off you hearing that your dog was running along the highway! I'm so glad there was a happy ending for you.

    Thanks. Kennel cough usually isn't too big of a deal. My vet was a bit concerned because my dog is over 10 years old. But she's pretty fit and healthy for her age, so hopefully she will be just fine.

    Cue - Just occurred to me - You remembered my dogs name! How cool are you!
