It's been eight months since Sharalyn Cooper has seen Fadidle, her 2-year-old miniature pinscher, but on Saturday, she held the tiny animal, with its "bat ears" quivering, to her chest and cried.

After a couple of months of scouring the neighborhood, posting fliers and diligently checking animal shelters in Davis and Weber counties, Cooper all but gave up hope.

Then, seven months after the dog disappeared, a call came from the San Diego Humane Society letting them now they had found Fadidle.

"I bawled and thanked them an awful lot," Cooper said. "I couldn't believe it. We done so much to get her back and hadn't found her."

The two were reunited at the Salt Lake International Airport after the dog turned up in San Diego."
