There are two things going on right now that we really need those positive and powerful ODO vibes for.
A little mini aussi-cross dog who went missing December 18th in Vancouver, and was sighted several times with homeless-looking people there, was again sighted over the past week near the ferry terminal with a transient, then on the island near where I live a couple of days later (again with a transient), and now further north on the island - this time dragging a rope where a leash would be and bolting into bush when anyone comes near. The owners have been doing everything possible from the get-go; the dog got away from a petsitter while the owners were on the other side of the country for Christmas and they immediately flew right back home, they've posted everywhere, they've never stopped looking, they've contacted all vets and shelters. After the sighting last night, and the very strong possibility this is their dog (he is a very unique looking dog!), they got the early ferry over here and are frantically searching and putting up posters all over that area. So please, send all the "Levi, be brave and come out of the bush" vibes you can muster.
And secondly, I just got a phonecall from my daughter - my granddog Becky was found collapsed about an hour ago - lying in her own pee and poop and a large puddle of saliva, and virtually comatose (no movement or response). My former son-in-law (who shares custody of her) had gone over to my daughter's apartment to let her out and found her, and my daughter ran home from work. They are taking her into the vet right now, but fear this may be the end. We don't know her age for sure as she's a rescue, but we think she is about 16 (she was estimated at 10-12 when she was adopted in spring 2008), and she's a mid-sized dog, some sort of aussie-border collie mix. She has been going downhill a lot this past year, so this isn't unexpected, but we all love her so much. Please wish for Becky to let my daughter know if it is time, and for a peaceful passing, or for a hasty recovery if it is not time.
