Puppies Returned Home

GRAVEL SWITCH, Ky. (AP) -- Jeanne Lane's nightmares of a real-life replay of the "101 Dalmatians" story has come to an end.

The passel of purloined puppies has been returned to her central Kentucky pet store.

Lane, who owns Penn's Store, says two Boyle County sheriff's deputies returned her yellow Labrador named Dixie and the dog's nine puppies on Tuesday, about a week after they disappeared.

Lane told the Danville Advocate-Messenger she's grateful for the happy ending.

Lane pleaded for the return of the litter, saying she feared someone was up to something sinister akin to "Cruella DeVille" the villain in the Disney movie.

She said she wouldn't prosecute anyone if the puppies were safely returned.

Lane says she will be giving some of the nine puppies away when they are ready. You can contact her at Penn's Store at (859)332-7715 or (859)332-7706.
