When the car she was riding in was hit by an 18-wheeler on the freeway, the dog fled the wreckage — and no one knew where she was.

Five days later, volunteers from Mutts and Mayhem Animal Rescue found the injured lab/retriever mix not too far away from where the accident occurred. She had to have surgery, but she got back on her feet.

But now, the dog — and her owner, Erica Cruz, who was also injured in the wreck — have been honored by the city of Plano. Cruz and the volunteers who rescued Daisy were lauded recently at the Plano Municipal Center.
