Here’s a missing dog story that trumps all others. An adorable dog named Petunia was finally returned to its family in Virginia after she went missing eight long years ago.

One day in 2003, the Pruitt family let Petunia outside and she never returned. Somehow, the pooch wound up 2,700 miles away in California, where she was found last week wandering in a wildlife preserve.

Watch this long-distance dog’s story below.
