If Scamp the terrier-Shih Tzu mix was living up to his name by playing a trick on his owners, a grandmother in Washington isn’t laughing.

Reta McKinlay thought her grandchildren’s puppy died after it escaped through a fence at her Yelm home and was hit by a car. The dog was bleeding, his eyes fixed. He wasn’t breathing.

McKinlay told The Olympian her husband wrapped him in a blanket on Dec. 3 and left him under a wheelbarrow to keep other animals away. They prepared to bury him the next morning.

She told her 6-year-old twin grandchildren that Scamp had gone to heaven.

But when her husband returned, Scamp was sitting up.

The family has spent $3,000 on veterinary bills since. McKinlay says Scamp’s return is the family’s Christmas present.
