Murphy was lost for two years – and is finally home. The family dog, Murphy, was lost on a family camping trip in the Tahoe National Forest, but the family never gave up hope of a reunion.
Murphy was spotted by a camper earlier this month and the family was notified. They arrived with those items most attractive to our pets – the dog’s blanket and the family’s “scent” – via their clothing.
The plan worked. Murphy returned to the items and was found sleeping on them.
We love our pets who love us. Unconditional love is hard to come by and is worth going back to the woods to find.
