Hank's story is something of a Cinderella fairy tale. He was a skinny stray with matted fur when he wandered into the ball, er, well, ballgame. It was spring training in Arizona to be precise.

between 2:58PM and 3:00PM - events occur in dog years." Apparently a threat was issued against CTU (Canine Terrier Unit) that cats were
dumping chocolate into the water supply. It's now up to "Jack Bowwow" to

Every once in a while the worlds of people and animals meet in a weird, wild and wonderful way.

This story has that "Lassie Come Home" feel to it. Major storm! Pet gets loose! Heartbreak! Then a year-and-half later- a reunion like no other. This transpired when a family decided to replace their lost dog with a new pup -- only to find out their wayward pooch was waiting for them at point and time of purchase. Sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction!
