As is always the case, thousands of dogs are terrified of fireworks at this time of year. november 5th brought 5 calls for help for dogs missing after being scaed by fireworks. Sadly we could only get to one call out, a labrador called ben who had bolted from the farm on hearing neighbours fireworks. Forager tracked Ben him and after 4hours of hard trailing we kept ending up at the same road junction and losing the scent. At 1am a call came to say the dog had been picked up by a farm worker who knew him ,on that very junction 7 hours earlier and had taken him home by car. (hence the scent trail ended at the junction)!!!! Ben was reunited with a relieved owner and we came home in the early hours.
