no longer sure I am really ok in the world!!!!

I think I might have lost Copper, I am not really sure, but I think I did. He is not lost now, he is asleep on the couch. But I think he might have been lost earlier and i didn't notice. I am not actually sure how long he might have been lost for either, but it might have been over night, or maybe he really wasn't lost at all...the problem is I don't know.
Yesterday is a bit of a blur because i didn't sleep and i was distracted with several sets of visitors and the newly arriving dog, by evening, I was half dead. I remember tormenting him with the daisy hat so I know where he was then, I just can't rermember anything else that was special or different with him interacting with me after that. So why am I freaking out? Because he was in the back yard this morning when i came back from running the dogs. I know Copper really well, if he had just slipped thru the gate in the rush of bodies when I was letting the dogs out today, he would have been out of that yard and gone in a minute. I would not have seen him again for an hour or two at the least. So if I just caught him in the yard upon our return, it meant he had already been out and about and had decided to come home as his walk-a-bout was done. So when did he get loose? I asked Julie if she saw him this morning when she got here at 10 am...nope. I can't honestly say that I saw him either, but that is normal because he frequently sleeps in til noon if he can and I went into the dog area through the yard to get the dogs for their run, not through the house. My gut says that little bugger was loose since last night when the last visitor left and I didn't notice, my mind says there is no way I wouldn't notice if that little chaos maker was missing. I SUCK at animal rescue and that bloody beagle gives me a headache, even when i am not sure I deserve one. Jean!!! Copper needs a cow bell so i can hear him and know where he is.
