The distance between Nicholasville and Houston, Texas is exactly 1,000 miles. Trudi, a 10-month-old German shepherd, found that out the hard way. The pup disappeared from her Nicholasville owners, Tom and Debbie Griswold, April 25 while playing with the boxer next door. The neighbor, who had been watching the pair when they ran off, rang her dinner bell to call the dogs, but it was to no avail. About 10 minutes after the disappearance, the Griswolds, who live on Baker Lane, began looking around the neighborhood for the dog. When the boxer returned without Trudi, the couple knew that their German shepherd was in trouble.
