A woman in the Midwest named Dorothy watched her little dog get carried away by high winds. That would be Dorothy Utley, whose Chihuahua, Tinker Bell, took flight Saturday in a 70-mile-an-hour gust of wind.

The Detroit News reported witnesses last saw the dog airborne, heading south over Dixie Highway. Dorothy Utley says it was a pet psychic who led her to Tinker Bell nearly a mile away - dirty, hungry, and very happy to see her.
