An Alaska woman suspected her family's dog snatched her wedding ring, but she couldn't find proof — until the platinum band turned up months later at a ball field.

The Daily Sitka Sentinel newspaper reports (http://is.gd/EJjr1y) Nikki Balovich lost her ring in January, when she was pregnant and often took it off her swollen finger.

The Sitka woman suspected Halli was the culprit because the puppy often carries household items in its mouth.

But Balovich had no evidence until last week, when she saw a post on a Facebook sales site about a ring being found in an "unusual place."

Balovich had a gut feeling and contacted the poster, Bob Potrzuski.

Turns out, his wife found the ring while picking up dog poop at a local ball field. Balovich also recently volunteered at the field, and brought along Halli.

She has since been reunited with her ring.
