NEWPORT—Receiving the same birthday present for a second
time may not seem appealing to most 10-year-olds. For Caden Smith, it was a
birthday wish come true.
As reported in the July 11 edition of The Newport Plain
Talk, Caden’s chocolate lab puppy named “Jace”, an early birthday present, went
missing Sunday morning, July 7.
Caden’s parents, Larry and Chrissy Smith of Sequoyah
Drive, were uncertain if the new pet had been stolen or just frightened away by
fireworks in the neighborhood the night before.
Miraculously, however, the boy and dog were reunited on
Sunday, July 14, one day before Caden’s 10th birthday.
“I got a call from someone who had seen the article in
the newspaper,” said Chrissy Smith. “They said they found the dog at a house
near the golf course. They said Jace was in a box with a blanket laying over
Chrissy Smith said the caller told her, since the dog had
no collar, they had no way of contacting the owners.
