Good News: Dog Missing For 2 Years Smells Her Way Home


A golden retriever who wandered away from her family at a campsite two years ago may have found her way back to her owners by smelling for her old blanket and their clothes. Owners Nathan and Erin Braun were camping in Tahoe two years ago when their beloved 5-year-old pet Murphy ran away. The couple posted fliers and searched for the dog to no avail, but never gave up hope of finding her.  Earlier this month, a camper at a nearby campground saw a dog that looked a little like Murphy. Jason Smith said he was at French Meadows Reservoir when he saw the dog. The Brauns drove to the campground and put down Murphy’s blanket along with a baseball cap and other personal effects from the family.  The very first night it was laid out he heard some movement.  There was Murphy sleeping on the blanket. It was curled up with its head on the hat.  Jason was able to leash Murphy after a few days and had a friend notify the Brauns, who came and were reunited with Murphy at the campground.  Watch this video here.
