Desperate search for widow's missing dog

A desperate search is underway for a missing golden retriever in The Woodlands -- desperate because the dog is the only link between a young widow and her late husband.Nikki is a small female golden, just under two years old. She was being boarded at a kennel off Woodlands Parkway when she went missing this past weekend. Just 11 months ago, Christina Keeton's husband was murdered while working in Mexico. Her family says the couple's dog was all that kept her hanging on.

Christina was too distraught to be interviewed. The family, along with the kennel owner, is blanketing the area with signs pleading for Nikki's return and offering the person who finds her a $2,000 reward. Anyone with information is asked to call 281-252-4907.
