I Think I May Have Ran Over My Dog.....

See the dog in the middle?  Not Dispatch the white one or Fema the gray one, the dog who is by the pickup and green chair?  That is Skeeter, she used to be my dads dog.  My dad has been dead 10 years and Skeeter was old then.  She looks sort of like a fake dog mixed with a troglodyte she is so old.

Anyway I'm not sure I ran over her but I thought I might have ran over something earlier today and she took off over the hill (OK she waddled and I tried to feed her chicken and she said bad words to me with dog esp and kept on going) and I can't find her......I was going to have to take her to the vet soon anyway to be put to sleep, she was pitiful she's like 20 years old, but I don't like to think of her dying alone but I can't find her.....we will see in the morning...this is her last known photo. She took like a minute to get up when she was laying down but maybe she didn't hear the car start which means she couldn't hear anything.   I feel bad but I took care of this dog for 10 years and nobody else would take her, she bit kids when we first got her.....she really didn't like me, she liked my husband....I still feel bad....

THE NEXT DAY...........
Skeeter came up the driveway this morning, she's been down in the farm buildings somewhere.  I haven't seen her eat or drink but she acted interested in food, I patted her down and she didn't seem to be in pain.  She's not very perky but she wasn't perky before I thought I ran over her.  You have to remember she is 140 in dog years or close to it, she's @ least over 100. 
If I don't see her eat or drink by tomorrow I will take her to the vet.  She's in her dog house in the shade and has hot dogs, cream, and water nearby..

Thanks KaLynn. I haven't found her yet, she didn't go far, my cousin looked for her by her house too. I just hope if she is gone she had a peaceful death...I think I've done my grieving already, I cried the first time she struggled to get up earlier this summer and several times after that....

Thanks everyone for their outpouring, Mistya, KayLynn, Tweedles and mama, she was back this morning and then disappeared this evening. I've already ruined several holidays for our vet and family agreed she didn't seem to be in pain.
We will see in the morning, she's lived here for 11 years now, my brother said she probably went somewhere and went to sleep and never woke up....
And Tweedles you must posess esp, that's the only explanation.
Oh and Thanks to Maureen @ island roar too...

I'm glad she showed up, it would be really sad if she had just disappeared.

I decided to read your posts in order to get all the details.
