KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) — There was a dog in Kansas City who watched too many 90s movies.
With a blizzard foretold, he set out on a journey to recreate one of the classics.
Jeremy Henson’s forecast for the week is white conditions and more than a meter of snow. Henson went to Las Vegas to hike in Zion National Park.
His dog, Dexter, didn’t make the trip and stayed in Kansas City, instead living the sweet life at a doggie hotel.
“He would rather stay with us,” Henson said. “But he has had an incredible journey back to his own little hometown.”
Dexter traveled two miles to get home. But the Hensons didn’t even know he was gone until they received a warning on their Ring doorbell. It wasn’t a package, but their furry best friend just wanted to say hi.
“He didn’t look like he was nervous or anything,” Henson said, “He looked so excited. He was very happy. He was very happy to be home. He was like hi guys, I’m here, let me in. Everything is fine now. I know you’ve forgotten me.”
His father’s voice was softer than the snow falling ahead.
“We were sitting there watching the snowstorm that was rolling down the Kansas City area the whole time, and we thought we had a short clock,” Henson said.
And just like in the movie, after a couple of loud phone calls, someone came right in.
“We miss him, can’t wait to see him again.”
