(SACRAMENTO BEE) For more than nine years, since her tiny poodle, Gigi, disappeared from her home during a robbery, Sally Butters has kept a poster featuring the pup outside her front door. Just in case.

“Missing” it reads, on bright pink paper. “Please call.”

But as the years passed without any word of Gigi’s whereabouts, Butters admitted, “I thought she probably was dead.”
