As an owner of two dogs, two dogs that just happen to be the bestest of friends, I couldn't imagine if something happened to either of them.  Geez, I don't think they would know what to do if they lost each other.

It's an awful thought; but one Ogle county family is experiencing that kind of loss after their two black labs ran away a few days after Christmas; but only one returned home.

According to WIFR , Casey was able to make it home but Jackson was found dead on West Otter Road on January 10th; he was shot twice. (are you crying, cause I'm crying)

Investigators say anyone with information should call Ogle-Lee County Crime Stoppers at 815-228-4488. Information leading to an arrest could be worth up to $1,000.
