1. Found two years later

In this story about a lost dog, the blanket played the biggest role. Murphy, five-year-old golden retriever went missing in California’s Tahoe Forest on a camping trip in 2012.

Murphy’s family brought their clothes and the blanket hoping to attract their dog, and that’s how she was found. There wasn’t greater happiness for this family and Murphy.
