A week or two after Thanksgiving my friends daughter lost her puppy. She had taken the dog to the store with her as she had done before. This time the dog jumped out of the car and dissappeared. There were sitings of the dog but no one could catch it. Weeks went by, posters and news articles had no respones. Recently word got to the dogs owner that someone just a mile up the road had been feeding a dog. She went to the house to inquire and learned that the dog that was being fed did not match the decription of the lost puppy. The dogs owner asked if she could check around to see if the puppy might have followed the other dog but was too afraid to come out while the lady was feeding the other dog. Around the back of the garage they found poop and tracks from a small dog. They found the little dog in a hole it had dug to keep warm under the garage. The lost puppy was reunited with it's human mommy and ended happily. Aside from being a bit skinny from lack of food the dog managed to survive in temperatures in the single digits. It was missing over two months.
