Missy the Chihuahua isn’t just a family pet. She is a therapy dog for six-year-old Chance Matthews. Chance is blind in one eye, partially blind in the other, partially deaf, and has to breathe through a tube.
So when she went missing, the entire community, led by TV station KXNL, looked for her. Normally a TV station won’t do a story on a missing dog, but this was a special case.
A doctor from Kauai donated a $500 reward. The Pacheco family found Missy and called immediately when they saw the news of the missing dog on TV. They were too “humble” to accept the reward.
Further evidence that the Chihuahua is not just a purse dog for some celebrity.
And on the flip side of "man's best friend," is a story sent by Denny...
A 21-year-old man in Memphis is in critical condition after his 150 pound Great Dane shot him in the back. The dog accidentally knocked a 22-caliber pistol off the owner’s end table around 2:30 am. No charges are expected to be filed.
