There's a happy ending to a Florida dog's 2,000-mile, two-year journey. 

In May of 2011, Endo the Mastiff, escaped his fenced-in backyard of his Cape Coral, Florida home.  Endo traveled up the Florida panhandle where someone picked up him and took him to Tennessee and then on to Minnesota.  He lived with a different owner in Duluth for a bit.  Then he was passed onto another owner in Wisconsin.  That's when he got out again.  Endo was picked up and ended up back in Duluth in a shelter where his microchip traced him back to Florida. 

Now four years old, volunteers will drive Endo back home this week to be united with his original owner.

And a kitten in Missouri survived a 36-mile trip on a hot engine.  Johnathan Widdows says Nyan slipped under the hood and curled up on the engine for a nap.  Widdows made a 36-mile trip Sunday to pick up his son.  He didn't know the cat was in the car. 

When he got back home, his son heard a faint meowing coming from the engine.  They found the stowaway, trembling and a bit traumatized, but otherwise okay.
