In this undated photo provided by McKenzie Grapengeter, the Grapengeter children, from left, Ava, 6, Greg, 10, and Shane, 9, pose for a photo with their dog, Abby, who is blind and went missing more than a week ago during heavy snow storms, at their Fairbanks, Alaska home. After walking 10 miles to the edge of a local musher's dog yard, Abby the brown-and-white mixed breed was found and returned to her owners on Sunday, just in time for Christmas.
