Photo: Lost Dog, Prince, 5 years ago
Anyone who has ever lost a dog, knows exactly what one California woman went through years ago when her Shih Tzu disappeared.
Five years ago, Myrna Carrillo’s 3-year-old Shih Tzu, Prince, went missing from the Delano, California home she shared with her mother. Myrna said that although she always thought she’d never see Prince again, her and her siblings often wondered if they might one day find out where he went.
Since then, the now-married mother of two has moved around town four times.
Then last week, when Carrillo came home from work, she was greeted with a surprise. Her long-lost Prince was standing at her door, seemingly waiting for her.
“I was a bit scared,” said Carrillo. “I thought I was seeing [things].”
Comparing pictures of her long-lost friend to the dog now outside her door, Carrillo and her husband are almost certain it is Prince, and said, not only did they recognize him, but he certainly recognizes them.
Carrillo says her sons have already gotten attached to the dog, just like their mom, and adds that after a five-year journey, Prince is a happy (re)addition to the family.
