We've been following the story of Romeo, a dog who was lost from his family for two months.
Today, Romeo's family took him to the vet for his first check up. That's understandable after the scare he gave his owner.
Owner Mike Stotts took Romeo with him on a vacation to Hyde Memorial Park in New Mexico in August. The beloved pooch went for a walk on a rainy night and disappeared.
"I end up looking for three days for him, criss -crossing, park rangers helping ," said Romeo's owner Stotts . "I had other campers helping put up flyers ."
But Romeo was no where to be found. His chances of survival were thought to be slim because of his age, hearing trouble and the bad weather.
"There was coyotes, mountain lions and bears . We just gave up," Stotts said.
He even said his final goodbyes with a small memorial made of sticks and rocks.
"I didn't like the idea my last visit with him being torn apart by coyotes," said Stotts, "So I had this nice little grave with a view because he'd like a view of the mountains . "
More than two months later , S totts was back at home when a phone call turned into an unexpected surprise. Romeo had been found. An ID chip helped a New Mexico Vet’s office locate Stotts , who was on the road to a reunion right away.
"Thing were the same within an hour or two it's like nothing had ever changed ," said Stotts of Romeo after the reunion, "Here he is he's in the back seat, doing the same things we used to do ."
Now they are together again, hopefully for good.
"As far as we know he just chilled out, napped and had his own cabin experience for two months, but I'd sure like to know what he was doing in that time period ," said Stotts.
But some things we'll just never know, Romeo isn’t telling.
