    The dog who disappeared after a horrible car crash on the the President George Bush Turnpike was honored by Plano city officials Monday.

    Daisy Mae ran off after she and her family were rear-ended by an 18-wheeler back in July.

    Five days after the crash, volunteers from Mutts and Mayhem Animal Rescue found the injured lab/retriever mix on a wooded embankment not far from where the accident occurred. Daisy was injured and underwent surgery.
