    Reed Taylor Jeppson is missing. He disappeared with both his dogs.

    You might say Beth Rogers’s dog is kind of responsible for her being missing, if she was trying to save it she got swept away.
    How about Ivy Leinen in Montana?
    Hers was kinda strange. I mean, she goes out to walk the dogs in Montana and there’s still ice on the river thick enough for her to think it’s safe to walk out on it, but her profile says she’s got on a short sleeveless dress?

      I decided the person didn’t necessarily count cause they were last seen walking their dog(s) like Ivy was. The dog(s) had to disappear along with the person. Ivy’s dogs came home only a few minutes after she left; they were never really missing.

      You might say Beth kind of caused her own disappearance, jumping into the water like that. A lot of people would say a dog is not worth risking your life for — especially since dogs tend to have swimming abilities as good as or better than most people. I have no idea what I would do if Michael’s cat fell in a swift-flowing river or got trapped in a burning building or something and only I could rescue her. I suppose it would depend on the circumstances. I’m a very poor swimmer — I can dog paddle and that’s about it. I like to say “I can swim, but only as an alternative to drowning.”

    Sandra Ann Sollie? Also, not to sound rude, but you shafted her twice: on this list and the pregnant women/girls list.

      *adds her* I assure you have I no prejudice against Ms. Sollie. I don’t know why I keep forgetting her.

    I always thought the Reed Jeppson case was bizarre. He was a good sized kid and hardly seems the type to run away. And if he was abducted did the abductor take the dogs, too? Weird.
