The Spicer family of Oxford informed us that Henry, one of their dogs that was missing, passed away last night.  

The other dog, Phoebe, is back home safe.

The original report follows:

Henry and Phoebe live on Sarah Drive. Their owner, Megan Spicer, said they hopped over the invisible fence on Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Julianna yes we would like to know a little more info. I was speaking to my other neighbor this morning, we both live on Sarah Dr and own big dogs who do periodically escape. This is very scary. I'm Melanie and if you'd like you can call me at 203 586 6112. Thank you greatly

Sorry Melanie still trying to find the "where, when and who" info myself. Just be very careful for now to make sure your big dogs don't get out!

I am so sorry. Was it reported what happened to Henry? Was it the cold? Other predators? Where was he found? I apologize if the completed story has been previously reported.

Was it coyotes? There getting really bold here, they have killed most of my outdoor cats, and the coyotes walk down the road in broad daylight, lite, like they own the road. And walk right into my driveway.
