Have you ever known someone whose life revolves around their pet? This was the case for the Walker family and their two poodles, Sasha and Bazi. A few days before Christmas in 2017, they took the dogs on their family ski trip.

But when the dogs spotted a few deer and took off into the snowy woods, the holiday vacation turned into a frantic search. As the days passed, and temperatures dropped, hope faded that they would find the dogs alive. All they could do was hope for a sighting--or a phone call.

In this story, hear how the Walker family did not give up and how community support helped the family get through.
