Our favorite story of the week if the BONUS of Sue the puppy being found. She was missing from the grain truck rollover on 171 last week. We put out a message that our tipsters shared over the weekend and she was located and her owner flew in on Wednesday and they were reunited at the airport.
Thank you so much to our tipsters! Sue is adorable.
