Parker reunited with owner

Coloma native Jennifer Hysell and husband, Rob Redwood, are shown Tuesday in Sodus, reunited with Parker, who had been missing for months.

SOUTH HAVEN — Coloma native Jennifer Hysell experienced her own Christmas miracle this past weekend when she was reunited with her missing dog.

After suffering the death of her father earlier this year, and nearly giving up on finding her dog, Parker, who went missing in July, Hysell posted on her Facebook page: “It’s almost Christmas and I’ve never felt less Christmassy in my life ... After everything I have lost, what do I have to celebrate? There is only one thing that can prove me wrong. Bring my Parker Marker back home.”
