RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne with something of a Christmas miracle. A blind dog wandered away from home during a big snowstorm last week in Alaska. The family feared they'd never see their pet again, since she was lost as temperatures fell to 40 below zero. But the short-haired mutt survived. Fairbanks Daily News Minor reports her nose led her to the home of a vet, who posted pictures on Facebook. And on Christmas Eve, Abby was back in the arms of her owners. It's MORNING EDITION.
