Kicker – The miracle at register 6

NICK EICHER, HOST: A newspaper headline called it the “Miracle on Register 6.” 

No one can quite explain how it happened. How June Rountree of Dothan, Alabama, was reunited with her best friend at the Walmart where she works.

Three weeks ago, her four year old lab-pitbull mix named Abby disappeared. She and her husband searched all over but found no trace.

That is, until one day she was working at the checkout line when she heard a commotion. 

She turned around and saw other employees trying to usher an animal out of the store. But it wasn’t just any animal. You’re getting this, right?  

REICHARD: It’s Abby!

She darted right up to Rountree’s register. 

The Walmart is about a mile away from her home, and amazingly, June never brought her dog inside the store. But somehow, Abby managed to find her way. 

An early Christmas miracle.
