A couple of weeks ago we reported on a lost dog, Sandy, whose family is from Ohio. They were visiting in the area when Sandy got loose and ran off. A search began but there was no sign of her before her owner had to return to Ohio. The search continued, however, thanks to help from Facebook, Twitter, print messages and more. Time passed, the search continued and Sandy's family returned to continue looking for her. On Monday morning, after 18 days, Sandy was found and returned to her very grateful owner. "She was skin and bones but she is okay," was the report." Thank you so much to everyone who helped bring this to a happy ending!!
