Peyton Myrick, 2 years old, was in the care of his grandfather at his home in South Carolina when he got an idea. As his grandfather was putting air in his tractor’s tires — in preparation to go looking for a Christmas tree no less — Peyton wandered away with the family dog, an Australian Shepherd named Ashepoo.
It wasn’t the best idea. His grandfather lives on the edge of the woods, and Peyton went into those woods. He was gone four hours. Ashepoo, however, stayed right by his side.
