UPDATE:  APRIL 29, 2020 -- 
GREAT NEWS!  THANK YOU ALL for helping get the word out about dogs Anna (aka Savannah) and Cody.  Within hours, they each found their way back to their wonderful and loving home.   Cody came home late yesterday afternoon and Anna/Savannah came home during the night last night.  It seems they weren’t far away from home at all.  Please let others you have told to keep an eye out for them, that all of our prayers have been answered and they are home safe and sound. 

Anna/Lulu (foxhound) and Code (small black and tan  mixed breed escaped escaped and went exploring at noon on Tuesday from their farm.  They are wearing ID collars and Anna/Lulu is probably still trailing a leash.  They are sweet, friendly dogs, though Anna/Lulu may be a little shy as she was recently adopted.  If you see them, PLEASE call Rob at 434 981.0955 and leave the time and exact location where you saw them.

While returning from a long walk, we ran across some deer and in the excitement, Jacob's collar slipped off and he has been chasing them ever since. He will likely become tired and hungry later, and seek out some civilization for food. If found, could you please contact Robbie O'Cain, 2127 Mountain Road, Afton, VA 22920, Mobile: (828)215-3503
