A dog that survived a car crash in South Dakota that killed its owner has been united with the late master's three sons from North Carolina.
Lester, Bobby Jr. and Troy Allgood traveled to Kadoka to pick up their father's belongings and Ladybug, who survived the Feb. 6 Interstate 90 crash that killed 74-year-old Bobby Allgood Sr. of Reed Point, Mont. The Australian shepherd ran away after the crash and spent nine days revisiting the site while eluding capture.
A Rapid City mother and son eventually coaxed the dog into their car. Kadoka Police Chief Forrest Davis boarded Ladybug at his home until the brothers arrived to pick her up. The Rapid City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/ykrw8O) the Allgood brothers on Monday gave Davis a gold cross engraved with their thanks.
