Gone and Back Again (GABA):
A GABA case is defined as when the dog was found after the CM started working on the case (i.e., after having the initial phone call) but before the case thread was posted in the Den and/or on our public page. The CM writes a short summary of what happened, and it is published as a GABA.
A GABA case synopsis includes how and where the dog was lost, and how it was found. If the dog is found deceased, the summary is posted, but it is not called a GABA.
