    Default Lost Dog Travels 80 Miles Across Nevada Desert In 1 Week To Return Home

    This is a truly remarkable story...

    Dog crosses desert, mountains and somehow gets back home


    A Siberian husky that ran off during a road-trip rest stop in Nevada apparently made its way nearly 77 miles across Nevada's high desert and two mountain ranges to return home a week later.

    ELY, Nev. - A dog that ran off during a road-trip rest stop apparently made her way nearly 80 miles across Nevada's high desert and two mountain ranges to return home a week later.

    Moon, a Siberian husky, was reunited April 14 with owner Doug Dashiell, who had last seen her April 6 near Railroad Valley, about 77 miles from his home in Ely.

    Moon, who is nearly 2 years old, was no worse for the wear, with the exception of stinking like a skunk that apparently sprayed her somewhere along the journey.

    "I've had trouble with her running away before. She's always come home," Dashiell said. But he didn't expect her to show up after a week had passed.

    "After seven days no way," he told the Ely Times for a story Thursday.

    Then the White Pine Veterinary Clinic called Dashiell and told him Moon was back in town. She had wandered up to an Ely residence where Alvin Molea took her home, fed her and gave her a place to sleep.

    Molea called the clinic because the dog was wearing a tag from it.

    The dog's journey would have taken her across the White River and Ward mountain ranges.

    That stuff amazes me.

    A buddy of mine moved across town and their dog went missing so they went back to their old house and the damn thing was there.

    You hear these stories all the time but they still amaze me every time. There is no reasonable explanation as to how this shit happens.

    People sometimes dump off their dogs (the one way ride) but never heard of one finding its way back home.

    beautiful dog
    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    Who would leave a nice doggie like that? Why didn't the owner look for her, especially when he "had troubles with her running away before." Come to think of it, why did he take her on a long distance car ride in the first place if she was prone to running away?

    That reminds me of this thing I saw on TV once. A family went on vacation and they left there puppy at a kennel. The family came home to find that thier puppy was missing. They heard barking coming from somewhere, so they looked around and found out it was coming from the storm drain or a sewer pipe or something. It turned out they were working on the pipes at the kennel and the dog crawled through the pipes all the way home. They showed a video of them digging up the yard and pulling the dog out.

    Its crazy stuff, you really wonder how animals do it.

    Sure there is. Homing instinct. Dogs are smart.

    Many are smarter than a lot of humans.

    This thread is a prime indication of how we all read things differently. After all reading the same story, some praise the dog, some chastise the owner, some see it scientifically, and Guitar Shark sees the illogic. Yet each post makes sense. I think it's great.
