Owner Doug Dashiell of Ely, Nevada had taken his three dogs on a weekend trip when Moon escaped at a rest stop on April 6. After searching for several hours and notifying local authorities, he gave up and went home.
Eight days later his veterinarian clinic called on to tell him Moon was back in town. She had been found by a local resident who called them because she was wearing a clinic tag.
Her 77-mile trip home had taken her across Nevada's high desert and two mountain ranges.
Moon was in good physical shape, prompting Dashiell to think that she may have dined on rabbits during her journey.
Oh, and there was strong evidence that she had had an encounter with a skunk who had sprayed her somewhere along the way.
