Kelly: Dog escapes, travels miles to site of owner's funeral [View all]

Source: Omaha World Herald

Dogs possess a keen ability to track a scent. But some events are unexplainable — suggesting that what happened was not from a scent, but a sense. A kind of “sixth sense.”

That's what Omaha professionals and others are saying about a 21-pound Schnauzer-Poodle mix named Elvis who ran out of a house and traveled miles on his own — and was spotted days later across the street from the church where his owner's funeral had been held.

How the pooch got to that exact location has amazed everyone who has heard about it.

“Animals have a sense not readily available to us,” said veterinarian Dr. Melissa Garner. “I don't have a scientific explanation. I think it's a sixth or seventh sense. It's something beyond what we can recognize.”

Gayle Johnson holds Elvis, the schnauzer-poodle mix who had belonged to her mother, Judy Gustas. After Judy died, Elvis was taken in by a nurse, but the dog ran away that night. Days later, he was found miles away, near the church where Judy's funeral had been held. Elvis now lives with Gayle and her family.
