I had a follow-up post started on the evolution panel, but it will need to wait a bit.
Our new puppy Z snuck out this afternoon and we haven't been able to locate him. Some kids in a nearby apartment complex said he came through there and they played with him for a while, but then he ran off.
Hopefully he's just in somebody's home right now and either they'll see our upcoming flyers, or they'll take him to a vet or shelter where his microchip will be scanned and they'll call us.
Hopefully he's in somebody's home. The low tonight is in the 30s.
I know more fully what it means now to do all you can to find that one lost sheep.
EDIT: A sweet young couple about a mile away found Z tonight and posted on Craigslist, just minutes before my own posting went live. I got many emails from people saying, "Oh my gosh! This is so awesome -- check the website! Somebody found your puppy!" Our postings were literally on top of each other, with one titled "Lost" and the other titled "Found".
Guess it goes to show you, at any given time, if you're wondering whether you're lost or you're found, you might actually be both.
