Glenshee ski patrol dog, Bode, has been found alive and well after going missing for nearly two days.
The collie-cross disappeared while checking for hazards on the ski runs with head of ski patrol, Kate Hunter, at the Glenshee centre.
After police appeals, rescuers scoured the mountain and eventually followed Bode's howls. The collie-cross was found at the bottom of a five-foot hole which was buried under heath and snow. The dog was said to be cold and wet but otherwise okay.
After a good night's sleep on the sofa, as a special treat, Bode was back on the mountain working on Monday morning. Bode is begin trained to help find skiers in the event of an avalanche.
