Blown-away pup back, owners credit psychic

There's no place like home for Tinker Bell, a six-pound Chihuahua that was picked up by a 70-mph gust of wind and tossed out of sight.

Tinker Bell has been reunited with her owners two days after a 70-mph gust of wind picked up the six-pound Chihuahua and tossed her out of sight.

Dorothy and Lavern Utley credit a pet psychic for guiding them on Monday to a wooded area nearly a mile from where 8-month-old Tinker Bell had been last seen. The brown long-haired dog was dirty and hungry but otherwise OK.

"We were shocked when we found her," Dorothy, 72, told The Detroit News. "You don't know how happy we were. We love her so much."

The Utleys, of Rochester, had set up an outdoor display Saturday at a flea market in Waterford Township, 25 miles northwest of Detroit. Tinker Bell was standing on their platform trailer when she was swept away.

Dorothy Utley said that her cherished pet "just went wild" upon seeing her.
