Twiggy's lost her pet and friend

TANYA (“everyone calls me Twiggy”) Bentley hopes someone in Gympie has a relatively new best friend.

And she hopes her long lost Rhodesian Ridgeback cross, Mojo, has found a good home.

The Kuranda resident and her dog were travelling through Gympie on their way to Melbourne just before New Year's in 2008.

“My friend wanted to go to Woodford for the folk festival.

“I didn't really want to go, but we were driving together, so I put Mojo in a boarding kennel.”

It was the last she saw of Mojo, who escaped from the kennel, probably out of a desperate desire to find the owner he thought he had lost.

“He probably went wandering to find me.

“It wasn't the kennel's fault. Council rules require a nine-foot fence and they had a 12-foot one.

“But he's a wonder dog and he escaped.

“I miss him so much,” she said.

“He'd never been apart from me, so he was probably freaking out.

“It's been more than a year, but I read an article in the local newspaper about a woman who'd lost her dogs two years earlier and got them back.

“For six years he went everywhere with me. He'd be seven now.

“I hope he's in a happy home,” she said of the dog she last saw in Eel Creek Road.

“If he is, they probably don't want to part with him. They probably love him as much as I do.

“If they could even anonymously just let me know he's OK.”
