found wedged in fork of tree

Our dog went missing while we were out of town. Friends were feeding her and said she was gone for one day before we got home. A week after we got home another one of our dogs found her wedged in between a fork in a tree.

We removed her body to bury, and wonder what stage of decomposition would she be in at 2 weeks, and at 3 weeks? Temps were in the 70's a few days, then snow, and 40's.
