Dog missing since fatal wreck in NM heading home to Michigan
TUCUMCARI, N.M (AP) ' A Maltese dog named Ceasar who disappeared more than a year ago from a fatal wreck near Tucumcari is on his way home to Michigan.
The Quay County Sun reports Wednesday (http://bit.ly/qGosd6 ) that Ceasar was found by a volunteer looking for adoptable dogs at the local shelter. She was able to track down his owner, Monica Benson, after he was scanned for a microchip.
Benson, who lost her husband and a daughter in the accident, said her four surviving children are very excited and have made welcome home posters for Caesar.
"This has been the best news we have received in a year," she said. "Words cannot describe how much this means."
Caesar left Tucumcari on Tuesday morning en route to Amarillo, where he will be flown to Oklahoma City, Okla. From there he will travel by way of motor vehicle and plane to his destination in Clio, Mich.
