Scooting across Iowa with mom

Waiting Out The Storm With Mom
My little Ukiayah is such an awesome friend. At the last minute I decided to visit some friends who were camping in Back Bone State Park some 5 hours away... 8 if you take a scooter and a four legged friend. Our way there was awesome... the way home we visited many undersides of overpasses while the rain soaked everything in sight. The filter got wet, the spark plug went bad, a hose split, and Ukiayah and I ended up making friends with every redneck mechanic in North East Iowa. None had seen a dog on a scooter... few had even seen a scooter. We were quite the conversation piece as we found different folks that had a very willing heart to help, but little knowledge. The two of us finally found someone that knew how to help. We rode in trucks, semi's, and more trying to find all we needed to get back on the road. Ukiayah was the perfect gentleman as his four paws and wagging tail charmed our way in to favors. Finally we were on the road again! We had finally dried out in the wind and the sun that finally appeared, when we saw familiar sights that lead us home. However, our final test was a sudden downpour just a mile from our house. We slip slided our way down the gravel road that lead to the warmth of home. We snuggled under a blanket the rest of the night together and were glad for the adventure, but even gladder we were home!
PLEASE HELP ME FIND HIM! Ukiayah ran off with my beagle just before a snowstorm hit one week ago (Jan. 30, 2011). I've tried everything I can think of to get the word out so I can bring him home to me. Please email me if you have seen him! We live near Boone and Ogden Iowa. firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you! I miss him so much!
