One afternoon in October 1990, Mugsy, the 4-year-old Jack Russell terrier, was hit by a car outside his owner’s house in Severna Park, Maryland.
Mugsy’s mom, Viola, was at work. And her boyfriend, Glenn, was taking care of their two young children.
Glenn realized what had happened and ran outside to find Mugsy bleeding on the concrete. He picked up the poor pup and watched him pass away in his arms.
Glenn described the situation, saying Mugsy was “really dead.” Meaning, he wasn’t breathing and had no heartbeat.
Glenn told the kids to stay inside before he carried Mugsy’s lifeless body to a wooded yard, dug a three-foot hole and buried him.
That night, Viola got home from work and the whole family went to see the makeshift grave. One of the kids said a tearful prayer. The next morning, they planned to put a wooden cross on the grave to honor their beloved Mugsy.
But then, the craziest thing happened. At 5:30 in the morning — 14 hours after the horrible accident — Glenn and Viola heard the sound of scratching at the door.
They could not believe their eyes.
