Silverton Bobbie, famous farm collie, walked 2551 miles home, alone, after getting lost on a cross-country, family vacation. In 1923 he accompanied his family on a vacation. Bobbie made his way East - from Oregon to Indiana - on a box mounted on the back of the family car. He got lost in Indiana as the family was leaving to return home. Bobbie managed to get back to his home in Silverton, Oregon in six months. He was emaciated and his paws were badly worn out. His family was ecstatic to have him home.
