Retriever rescues his own brother (Photo; CBS News)

Two weeks ago, Penny Blackwell's golden retrievers, Baxter and Bailey, got loose while tied up on a double leash in front of her Cape Cod, Mass., home.

Blackwell had nearly given up hope of finding her dogs when a friend found Baxter wandering near her home. Baxter then led his owner right to Bailey, whose leash was tangled up in some bushes in the woods.

"Baxter kind of led me off the side through the woods. I had twigs in my eyes and leaves in my hair," Blackwell said.

"I could hardly get him untied because he was jumping on me and jumping on Baxter because he was so happy to see us," said Blackwell.

The dogs each lost 8 to 10 pounds during their misadventure, but they're otherwise healthy -- and happy to be home.
