Not only was a car stolen in Richfield, Minnesota on Friday the 24th of September, so was a dog! The lab mix was in the car, and both disappeared. But don't worry, there's a happy ending here.

According to WCCO TV -

"Vic, a very friendly 50-pound black lab mix, was inside Lucas Albers’ car when it was stolen in Richfield on Friday. The car was found abandoned in St. Paul the next day, but Vic was nowhere to be found."

"He’s home. Safe and sound. A gentleman in Saint Paul was approached by Vic as he was walking home tonight around 10 pm through a park...

...Thank you to everyone as well as the Retrievers organization so very much for all your efforts in helping me get my buddy home to me. You really helped ease my mind with all the supportive messages and sharing of information to help aid in his recovery. This mission has been a success.

How was Vic doing? Good health, good spirits, and thirsty as heck. Oh, and stinky! So he got a bath and then curled up in bed to sleep.

I call that a super happy ending.
