Half Mag / Half Zine

A man in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was watching television last week when the WITI news team showed a photo of a dog that was available for adoption.

“Meet Mason,” the news segment began…

Dwight Gary took one look at the dog and said out loud, “No that’s not Mason, that’s most definitely Payday!”

He recognized the distinctive underbite of his little black pup who had gone missing from their yard more than two years ago after being frightened by fireworks.

He contacted the news desk of channel 6, which regularly features pet adoptions for the Wisconsin Humane Society.

The coincidence led to “a fairytale ending” when Payday was reunited with his family and immediately recognized them upon their arrival.
