An Arizona dog owner cannot explain how Nicholas, her peppy Yorkshire terrier, ended up 2,896 km away in Wisconsin, but she is sure that if he could talk, he would have one heck of a tale to tell.

亞利桑那州一位狗狗飼主無法解釋她活潑的約克夏㹴犬「尼可拉斯」,如何出現在2896公里之外的威斯康辛,但她確定若牠可以說話,牠會有一段很長的故事要說。

Linda Baldazo said her 1-year-old dog who went missing from her Tucson home in October and was located in Howard, Wisconsin, just north of Green Bay on Feb. 6. "I have no idea how he got there ... but it’s a great story," Baldazo said on Friday.

琳達.巴達索說,她1歲大的狗狗去年10月從她土桑市的住家走失,2月6日在威斯康辛州綠灣市北部的霍華德鎮被找到。「我不知道他如何到達那裡…不過,這是一個很棒的故事,」巴達索週五表示。

Baldazo, 42, said her best guess is that Nicholas hopped a ride with a motorist traveling from Arizona to Wisconsin.

42歲的巴達索說,她最合理的猜測是尼可拉斯跳上一部車,和從亞利桑那州開車來到威斯康辛的駕駛人一起兜風。

The dog was found running down the street and an animal control worker telephoned Baldazo after identifying Nicholas through an implanted microchip, according to Lori Nachtwey, spokeswoman for the Bay Area Humane Society.

這隻狗被發現在街上一路跑著,在透過植入的晶片確認尼可拉斯的身分後,一名動物保護人員致電巴達索,「灣區動物保護協會」女發言人洛莉.納赫特威說。

"When they called me last week ... it was awesome, because it’s like your kid," Baldazo said. The playful brown terrier is in good spirits and will remain at the humane society until Baldazo can get enough money together to fly to Wisconsin to retrieve him, Nachtwey said. "We are more than excited about reuniting them," she said. (Reuters)

「他們上週打電話給我…真是太棒了,因為牠就像是你的孩子,」巴達索說。這隻愛玩的棕色㹴犬情緒穩定,將一直待在動保協會,直到巴達索有足夠經費飛來威斯康辛接回牠,納赫特威說。「我們熱烈期待讓他們重逢,」她說。(路透)
