KERNERSVILLE, N.C. — Still grieving over his mother’s death in a house fire, Steve Morris spent much of Wednesday and Thursday dealing with another heartbreak — the disappearance of his beloved dog, Scout.

The story ended on a happy note Thursday evening when Scout, a Shetland sheepdog, and Morris were reunited.

Scout had provided Morris some comfort during what had been a painful week. Morris’ mother, Sue Morris, and her dog, Sarge, were killed in an apartment fire in Kernersville last week.

On Saturday, Morris and other family members scattered his mother’s ashes from an overlook at Pilot Mountain.

“She was never specific about where she wanted her ashes scattered. She just told us, ‘Take them somewhere pretty.’ She liked Pilot Mountain. We used to take her there,” Morris said.
