Tinker Bell the Chihuahua Blown Away, Blows in Wind

A little chihuahua named Tinker Bell was lost after being blown away in a huge gust of wind in Michigan, and was thought to be lost until she was found almost a mile away!

The owners, Dorothy and Lavern Utley, say they actually used a pet psychic to relocate the animal, who was so small she got caught up in the wind gust that blew her away into a different part of town. The dog was found in a wooded area about a mile away from where the wind had blown.

History says that Chihuahuas originated in Mexico and the most common theory and most likely story of origin is that Chihuahuas descended from the Techichi, a companion dog that was favored by the Toltec civilization in Mexico long ago. Chihuahuas are naturally territorial and protective, and can be easily provoked to attack, so they are sometimes unsuitable for homes with small children. A Chihuahua who is pack leader of their humans may someetimes snap at small children. This breed is generally not recommended for children, not because they are not good with them, but because many people treat Chihuahua sdifferently than a large dog, causing them to become untrusting.

Tinker Bell has been reunited with her owners after a 70-mph gust of wind picked up the six-pound Chihuahua and tossed her out of sight. Dorothy and Lavern Utley credit a pet psychic for guiding them on Monday to a wooded area nearly a mile from where 8-month-old Tinker Bell had been last seen. The brown long-haired dog was dirty and hungry but otherwise OK. The Utleys had set up an outdoor display Saturday at a flea market in Waterford Township, northwest of Detroit...
