Happy Tuesday...

Omg this story made my Tuesday!!

WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Tinker Bell has been reunited with her owners after a 70-mph gust of wind picked up the six-pound Chihuahua and tossed her out of sight.
Dorothy and Lavern Utley credit a pet psychic for guiding them on Monday to a wooded area nearly a mile from where 8-month-old Tinker Bell had been last seen. The brown long-haired dog was dirty and hungry but otherwise OK.
The Utleys, of Rochester, had set up an outdoor display Saturday at a flea market in Waterford Township, 25 miles northwest of Detroit. Tinker Bell was standing on their platform trailer when she was swept away.
Dorothy Utley tells The Detroit News that her cherished pet "just went wild" upon seeing her

First things first - why would you leave a 6lb chihuahua on a platform when there are 70-mph gusts of wind?? Besides that this story is awesome cause I can just imagine how horrified and upset those poor owners were when they saw their beautiful Tinker Bell swept away Dorothy style. Also they used a pet psychic?? This whole thing just made the fact that I am spending yet another beautiful day in a gray cube a little bit easier to take.

P.S. The chihuahua pictured is not actually Tinker Bell, his name is Carlos and he belongs to a friend of mine. I'm not quite sure why he is holding him like a burrito but I promise you he is well taken care of.


  1. How does one become a pet psychic, I wonder? That story is pretty insane!

  2. awwwwwww that poor little chihuahua must have been so confused. Also, Carlos is ADORABLE!

  3. I wish i could have seen the dog flying along. It would have been funny but scary at the same time. Definitely an Americas Funniest Video moment.

  4. Great blog! What a great doggy story! I hope you dont mind if I follow along.

    Please feel free to visit us at Fort Thompson anytime, you are always welcome.

  5. This story made me tear up - I can only imagine the lengths I would go to in order to get my fur-babies back. Sweet picture too!

  6. One of my co-workers discovered this story this afternoon. It's awfully crazy and a bit amusing.
