ORMOND BEACH, Fla. -- Parker, the little dogie from Ormond Beach, who got lost Wednesday trying to conquer a fire station, is back home after a one-day jaunt, with her relieved owner proclaiming: "We missed you Sweetheart!"

Indeed.

In big letters, owner Heather Dougherty-Harris posted the following on her Facebook page: "FOUND DOG!!! PARKER IS HOME!!"

"Thank you everyone!!! She was picked up and brought to Ormond Veterinary Clinic," Dougherty-Harris explained. "Dr. (Michael) Burke, his staff and a super nice lady (who had just lost her dog) took great care of her. I can't say Thank you enough for everyone's all help spreading the word, all of the prayers and the very helpful advise!! Oh Happy Day!!!"

Parker was described to Headline Surfer by Dougherty-Harris as a "shorkie" -- half Shitzu and half Yorkie. She Is about 7 years old, but looks like 2 to 3 years old, her proud owner said.

Parker was not wearing her trademark red bandana when she went missing near the Granada Street Fire Station. So the distraught owner called the Ormond Beach Police, several animal shelters and then took to Facebook. A friend of her's contacted Headline Surfer, which then wrote an initial story.
