If you've ever lost an animal that's run away or got out of the house/yard, you know that feeling. That sinking emptiness in your stomach. Your heart hurts. The tears flow nonstop. It hurts. Bad. And for the kids it's even worse. Because you have to deal with your emotions and the looks on their faces. And their heartache.

You put up posters. Check the shelters. You hope someone calls or they just show back up on your doorstep.

This is one of those stories. And it has the happiest of endings. And it's a tearjerker.
