On Sept. 12, 2006 my yearling filly, Ovation, disappeared sometime between the morning turn-out and dinner time. My husband and I were both at work and when we came home, to find her gone, we were horrified.
Over the course of the next 6 days, we looked everywhere we could think of. We have 40 acres that border other parcels in reproduction so there were hundreds of acres where she could be. Our worst fears were that she was dead or had been stolen. Through Oregon Equestrian Trail Riders (OET) a young man contacted me via email and said he would be glad to help. He was to arrive on Sunday to look. On Saturday I called Annette. She said she felt that Ovation was still in her body and was strong. She asked for us to send her a map of the place via fax.
The next morning, Kevin Kistler arrived with his dog, Kobuk. I showed him around, then he told me to go to the house so I would not interfere with Kobuk. I went back to the house to wait and about the time I got in the door, the phone rang, it as Annette. She told me she had closed her eyes and had her hand over the map and felt three warm spots on the map which could indicate where the horse was. As she was talking the cell phone rang. Kevin's dog had found the yearling in the spot where Annette had felt the warmest spot on the map. Ovation was hungry and thirsty. She was thin and gaunted up from lack of water. BUT she was really OK and happy to be home again.
MochiWe found Mochi!!!!!!!! He was in Ravensdale, 10 miles south of our house! NONE of the sightings have been him! He left our home on February 22nd weighing 80 pounds and he's pushing 50 right now. He was eating birdseed in a person's backyard a week ago, and they have been caring for him since. Their neighbor saw our sign and brought it to them! This is a miracle! Thank you so much for your help!!!
JaKaiOn a Friday November 17th, 2007 my 9 month old German Shepherd JaKai jumped the fence in search of me (I was out of town at the time). By 5 o'clock that evening we had lots of people looking for her. The following Saturday (now it had been 8 days) I contacted Annette. Annette told me that JaKai was scared and told her she saw a red like in the sky (later we fount out it was Christmas lights or the Everett Navel station, she was on the hill top overlooking that part of Everett.)
Monday evening after walking 2 or 3 miles to get my scent around I parked my car. It only took an hour and I spotted a dog, I got out of the car and walked toward her calling her name. She disappeared around a house and down an alley. Thank goodness for snow I could see her tracks. I called again. Then I saw her head come around the corner and I called her again. She ran to me and knocked me over talking and talking the way German Shepherds do.
Thanks to Annette I have my soul mate and the love of my life back.
Mary and JaKai
Xena accidentally got locked in a neighbor's garage for the night. She spied the back seat window of the car open, so she jumped in and fell asleep. In the morning the neighbor got into her car to go to work. When she was a little out of the neighborhood she was startled by Xena's presence. Her first reaction was to open the car door and usher Xena out. Though Xena wasn't too far from home, it took nearly 2 weeks before she was reunited with Sherry and her 2 kitty sisters...
PumpkinMy indoor kitty ran away once before, but came home just hours later. So when he ran away the second time, I thought nothing of it and waited for his return. After one week I was out of my mind, I couldn't focus on anything but finding Pumpkin. I was referred to Annette and after following her strange and unconventional methods exactly two weeks after Pumpkin escaped I awoke to find that Pumpkin was standing at the side of my bed staring up at me. I know that if Annette had not worked her magic, Pumpkin would never have found his way home. I am eternally grateful.
