SACRAMENTO, Calif., USA - The tale of the lost dog ended happily late Saturday when the owners of 'Cassie' showed up to pick her up.
It turned out she lives about 15 blocks away and had dug herself out of her backyard, wanting a little free running room.
She got it, but unfortunately, couldn't find her way home after a little burst of freedom.
Her very-worried owners posted a notice with the local Animal Shelter, which Admiral Fox contacted and after a few phone calls, the dog is now back with her family and we have a very nice 5-pound bag of dog food for the next stray that takes up residence in our front yard.
