Dog reunited with family

A family of 3 was spending a quiet evening at home with their dog, a teacup Great Dane, in Idaho on the night of Nov. 7 when a truck crashed through 4 walls of their home. They were enjoying a card game when the truck struck them leaving the man with five broken ribs, a broken collarbone, a broken shoulder, and a severe gash on his leg that required 150 stitches. The woman sustained a broken neck and a lacerated liver while the child needed a few stitches and treatment for a dislocated hip.

The dog escaped injury and evidently followed the ambulance which transported the family to a medical facility. He then disappeared and friends and family set out to find him.

On Saturday morning the dog was returned to a family friend by an anonymous resident who found him. A surprise reunion between dog and master was arranged.

"When they told me they were going to take me outside for some fresh air I was wondering why no one was talking about my dog," Groat said. "I thought he had gotten run over, it was terrible."

But Groat's 80-pound, four-legged companion was waiting to say hello.

"It was unbelievable," Groat said. "It made my day. I didn't even feel my broken bones then."

1. "Teacup Great Dane" is an

oxymoron if I ever heard one

I'm glad he was found and the family was reunited.

Wishing them all a speedy recovery.

2. I know, huh

Good-looking dog, though. I'm happy they're back together again, too.
