Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Tinkerbell the Flying Chihuahua

It’s a story right out of “The Wizard of Oz” except the setting is Michigan, not Kansas. Bystanders at a Detroit-area flea market were stunned this weekend when high winds from a passing storm picked up a Dorothy and Lavern Utley’s chihuahua and blew it out of sight.

Tinkerbell was found two days later, nearly a mile away.

Bystanders at a Detroit-area flea market were stunned this weekend when high winds from a passing storm picked up a couple’s Chihuahua puppy and blew her out of sight.

After two days of searching and consulting with a pet psychic, Tinkerbell was found almost a mile away in the woods dirty but unharmed. Her owner’s name? Dorothy. “We were shocked when we found her,” Dorothy Utley, 72, told The Detroit News. “You don’t know how happy we were. We love her so much.” Joe Goldberg, manager of the Dixieland Flea Market in Waterford Township, where the Utleys are regular vendors, said he saw Tinkerbell, weighing about 6 pounds, blow away when he went outside to survey the damage wrought by the hurricane-force wind gusts.
