They share affection with no strings attached, entertain us mightily, and provide us with daily opportunities to show love and care. And when they disappear, they can break our hearts.

The veteran blindsided by far more grief than he ever expected after Lola went missing, admitting that the dog was on his mind all the time, and he worries about her safety because of her small size.
“For the last week and a half, day and night, I go to bed thinking about her, I wake up a time or two at night thinking about her. I guess you call it grieving,” he said.

Luckily, there is someone who spotted her. LeClair and Lola were reunited on Saturday, after a hero named Cynthia Godfrey found the dog in a nearby park.she took the dog home and took care of her until she saw Lola’s picture on the news she immediately gave LeClair the call that Lola was safe and sound, and the two planned a meeting to get Lola back home.
