Santa's pets are missing.
Betty Lou, the 9-year-old dwarf pygmy goat featured in a photo in Monday's Herald sneaking a candy cane, has gone missing, along with a canine companion.
And their owner, "Santa" David Eek, hopes someone can help him find them.
Eek, of Chattanooga, Tenn., was sleeping in his truck at the King City Truck Stop early Thursday when Betty Lou and his black Lab-mix King needed to go outside.
Betty Lou disappeared and was spotted by some truck stop employees later in the day, but no one's quite sure where King, wearing an orange collar, ended up.
Eek is asking anyone who finds the little brown goat or King to call him at 423-693-3883.
