It's a Christmas miracle!

What is blind, has four legs, is eight years old, and survived the Alaskan winter without heat, transportation, the ability to operate anything resembling transportation, or any semi-advanced cognitive capacities? A dog. Abby, a brown-and-white mixed-breed belonging to the Grapengeter family, to be exact. On December 13, she disappeared near Fairbanks. With temperatures dropping as low as -40 degrees Farenheit and considering the dog had lost her eyesight a year ago, the Grapengeters figured their dog was gone, but on the 23rd they received a call from a local vet, saying Abby had showed up at his door without any signs of injury or frostbite. "It's a miracle, there's no other words to describe it," said the mother, McKenzie Grapengeter. "We never expected to have her be returned safe and alive."
