Many dog owners cannot bear to think about what would happen if their pet was stolen. One World War II veteran had to face that nightmare scenario -- but thankfully, all is resolved now.

Los Angeles news station KTLA reported that last week, Roger LeClair's dog, Lola, was stolen from his home. A child reported that he saw a woman drive up to LeClair's house and take Lola; she told the child that she was taking the 1 1/2 pound dog to the veterinarian.

LeClair described Lola as "the love of his life" and was devastated that she was missing. He told KTLA, "For the last week and a half, day and night, I go to bed thinking about her," he said. "I wake up a time or two at night thinking about her. I guess you call it grieving."

Thankfully, however, LeClair does not have to grieve anymore. Cynthia Godfrey found Lola at a dog park near her home in Chino. She cared for the 12-year-old dog until she found LeClair from previous news coverage.

Godfrey returned Lola to LeClair, and now the best friends are together again.
