Something that scares all pet owners is waking up one day and realizing your little furry friend is missing. It's a truly terrifying thought and reality that doesn't always end well. Pets are part of the family. It's often been said that a death or loss of a pet is ranked in the top 5 most devastating moments for a person. Suddenly one of the constants in your life is gone and it can have huge impacts on psyche. Especially for younger children who perhaps can't understand it quite as well. Many of us who grew up with pets know this well if we ever lost them at a young age. It weighs heavily on us going through life.
Recently a family in Melbourne, Australia went through this after someone reportedly stole their eight-week-old pup named Sasha during a burglary. It's an awful thing to do. It's one thing to rob a house of valuables, but to take someone's pet is a true new level of evil. Especially something so young and likely belonging to the daughter in the family. Luckily, this story does have a happy ending though. Sasha was returned to her owner after a few days!
In the interview, her owner explained that his wife woke up one morning and saw Sasha in their backyard. His daughter, who was particularly devastated over the whole thing, was the most excited to see Sasha return. It's definitely a nice end to the story but we'd love to see whoever was responsible for the initial strife be punished by the law.
The four-year-old daughter isn't the only one who was excited to see Sasha's safe return.
So let this be a lesson to all would-be thieves out there. Don't steal dogs. It will just eat you up inside.
