DALLAS (AP) - The holidays were sad enough for a Dallas woman after her lovable pug "Scooter" dug its way out of the back yard and disappeared.

Now Kim Velevis has received a letter from an anonymous woman who found the friendly dog and gave it to her daughter as a Christmas present.

To compensate, a $20 bill was enclosed with the letter that arrived Wednesday.

The typewritten letter, with a Tulsa, Oklahoma, postmark, says the woman found the dog while visiting her daughter in Dallas. She wrote that her ex-husband has custody of the girl.

Velevis, 28, says she feels for the woman, who describes herself as a near penniless alcoholic, but Velevis says she wants her pet back.

Velevis, who is pregnant with her first child, says she and her husband brought the wrinkly faced pooch home in mid-2006 -- and the
dog is good with youngsters.
