WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Tinker Bell has been reunited with her owners after a 113 km/h gust of wind picked up the tiny 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 two kilometres from where eight-month-old Tinker Bell had been last seen.

The brown long-haired dog was dirty and hungry but otherwise OK.

The Utleys, of Rochester, had set up an outdoor display Saturday at a flea market in Waterford Township, 40 kilometres northwest of Detroit.

Tinker Bell was standing on their platform trailer when she was swept away.

Dorothy Utley tells The Detroit News that her cherished pet “just went wild” upon seeing her.
