DICKINSON, Texas -- When Sweetie, a Pomeranian owned by Alan Jones and his wife, Debra Burris, went missing in 2007, they figured they’d never see the fuzzy pup again. Then — a month ago — came the call.
Jennifer Phipps left a short voice mail on Jones’ mobile phone.
“This is Jennifer with the Harlingen Humane Society in Harlingen and this call is in reference to a little dog named Sweetie,” she said. “Please return my call.”
Could it be? Six years after she disappeared, could Sweetie still be alive?
