CARLSBAD — Rangers at the Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve warned Kris Anderson nine days ago that she might as well give up on finding her lost dog, Georgia. On the afternoon of June 27, the 8-year-old Shar Pei mix disappeared into the hills chasing a rabbit, and after many hours of fruitless searching Anderson couldn’t find a trace of her in the county park. With all the coyotes in the preserve, Anderson learned, it was unlikely that Georgia could have survived the night.
But Anderson and her daughter, Sarah Lucas, never gave up hope. Day after day, they made the 70-mile round trip to the preserve from Anderson’s home in Carlsbad
Georgia is just the latest case of a lost pet finding a way home against all odds. In 2012, a 3-year-old black Labrador named Bucky followed his owner nearly 500 miles from Virginia to South Carolina. A year later, a 4-year-old Florida cat named Holly made its way 190 miles home.
