    Blind dog lost in Alaska snowstorm and -40 degree temps find way back to owners

    FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Blind and alone in Alaska winter temperatures that dipped 40 degrees below zero Fahrenheit (-40 degrees Celsius), a lost 8-year-old Fairbanks dog wasn't given much of a chance to make it home. But after walking 10 miles (16 kilometres) to the edge of a local musher's dog yard, Abby the brown-and-white mixed breed was found and returned to her owners, a family that includes two boys and one girl under the age of 10.
    The dog that the family raised from an animal-shelter puppy went missing during a snowstorm on Dec. 13, and the family never expected to see her again, The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported.

    "I have six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I lock every other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the locks, they are always locking three." -- Elayne Boosler

    He IS a beagle - anyone who has ever walked a beagle knows the nose is WAY more important than mere eyesight! I am guessing he just kept sniffing and sniffing until he came across the scent of dogs and dog food and followed that!
