For five days, during the cold snap and blizzard in Bryant Pond, Maine, Sophie was missing. It's truly a miracle she's alive...


The poor thing was poking her head out of a snow bank that she was buried in.

Sophie went out with Albert Silver and his family while he plowed and shoveled snow in Bryant Pond on Thursday, January 4th. Then, she disappeared. They called animal control and neighbors, but no one had seen poor Sophie.

They thought as day five approached that they had lost Sophie for good. Then, they saw her head poking through the snow, in an area they had already searched. It took some plowing to get her out, but she is fine.

The vet said she lost about five pounds, but had no frostbite or injuries! Sophie was able to go home to a great party.


The whole family was so grateful to the friends and even strangers who looked for Sophie. She is warm and she loved her cake.
