MISSING DOG NAMED NEO A beautiful gray and white Siberian Husky. It’s a long shot that he may come to your organization, but one never knows. Neo was in a car accident on 4-4-09 where a beautiful person “Joyce Moore” was killed.Neo stayed with Joyce until medical people arrived and then he took off. He has been sighted several times including today 4-8-09 . He appeared to be headed northwest which in the direction of his home. The accident was in Snowville Utah and home is Kelso Washington . So he could be in route anywhere from Utah . If Neo comes to your organization, even if a few months down the line, he is very much wanted by Joyce’s sister Deb Moore who can be reached at 360-636-1824. If somehow he makes it the SF Bay Area, you can also call Barb Teasdale at 415-563-3641.Neo may be hard to ‘get’. He was totally Joyce’s partner in life and is most assuredly confused and scared. He knows Joyce passed on and so far is refusing to respond to people attempting to help him.The family would be most grateful if Neo comes to you, even if it’s months/years down the line and very much would appreciate any help in recovering and reuniting with him. Please feel free to send this to any Husky or Malamute organization you know.THANK YOU FOR ANY HELP YOU CAN GIVE.

A local critical care nurse was killed in a car accident Saturday afternoon near Snowville, Utah, while driving cross-country to see her new grandson.
Joyce A. Moore, a registered nurse at St. John Medical Center in Longview and Legacy Salmon Creek Hospital in Vancouver, was driving east through Utah on Interstate 84 when she rounded a curve and drifted into the median, according to the Utah Highway Patrol. She overcorrected into the eastbound lanes, and her blue 2006 Kia Spectra rolled over into the median. Moore, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was flung from the car, the UHP said.
Moore, 47, was transported to Bear River Valley Hospital, where she later died.
According to ksl.com, a dog was with Moore when the ambulance arrived. Bystanders tried to catch the dog, but it ran off.
Deborah Moore, the victim’s sister, said Joyce Moore left Kelso on Friday night with her Siberian Husky. She was driving to her son’s residence in Rochester Hills, Mich., for the birth of her grandson.
The baby was born “just about the same time she died,” Deborah Moore said Monday.
“Why she wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, I have no idea. She always did,” said Moore, who shared a house in Kelso with her sister.
The dog, named Neo, has been sighted since the accident, but no one’s been able to catch him, Moore said.
“He won’t be caught unless he wants to be caught,” she said of the dog, which is 8 or 9 years old.
Two of Joyce Moore’s co-workers from Legacy hospital are traveling to Utah to lay flowers at the crash site and try to corral Neo and bring him home, she said.
Shawnee Smith, a registered nurse at St. John’s Intensive Care Unit, said the news of Moore’s death was “pretty shocking to everybody.”
“It’s horrible,” Smith said Monday. “She was a very energetic, vibrant, outgoing person. She’s one of those people who walks in a room and makes it a brighter place.”
Moore had worked in the ICU for two years, she said.
According to St. John’s spokesman Randy Querin, a memorial service will be held for Moore at 5 p.m. Wednesday in the hospital chapel.
She has been cremated, her sister said.
I do not know Joyce or her sister Deb, but would like to get the word out about Neo. I was not able to get the photos to post, so if anyone would like photos of Neo, please email me privately at email@example.com
Thanks for keeping your eyes open for this beautiful scared boy. He could be anywhere. Lynn in Idaho
