BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A dog that was feared dead after a weekend avalanche killed its owner showed up exhausted and hungry four days later at the Montana motel where its owners had stayed before going skiing.

 

The Billings Gazette reports the owner of the Alpine Motel spotted the Welsh corgi at around noon Wednesday, sitting outside the room where Dave and Kerry Gaillard had stayed before going skiing southeast of Cooke City on Saturday.

 

The hotel was about four miles from where Dave Gaillard was buried in the snow slide.

 

Cooke City businessman Bill Whittle, a member of the search and rescue crew that helped retrieve Gaillard’s body, says the dog appeared to be in good condition, despite traveling four miles on short legs.
