A man who thought his dog was lost forever almost ended up with three times as many pets after his black lab returned home accompanied by another pooch and a goat.
Kyle Krier’s wife, Laura, from Concordia, Kansas had let the family dog out of the house to go to the bathroom the night before – but he never came back.
‘My wife told me there was another white dog in our yard and Bo took off and would not come back,’ Kyle wrote in a posting online.
‘We looked all over the place for him and could not find him. We decided to go home and wait for him to come back but he never did. I went out in the morning to look for him and found no sign of him anywhere.’
Having given up almost all hope of his furry friend returning, imagine his surprise upon hearing that his dog had been seen out and about – but with company, some six miles away from the family home.
‘My wife got a call that someone had just about seen a black lab, a white lab and a goat on the road. My wife called me and told me the news and I knew right away that was our dog. I left work right away. I saw the crew out in a cut bean field on the east side of the highway.’
Video captures the heartwarming moment as Bo comes running through the Kansas cornfield back to his master.
Not far behind are his new found friends – another golden Labrador and a goat who seems eager to join in the fun.
Bo climbed up into his pickup trunk with the other dog following closely behind.
Not wanting to be left out, the goat gamely clambered up into the cabin of the vehicle.
‘Hey goat you wanna get in my truck too?’ the man asked the goat. ‘Hop in! Get in the back. Just make yourself at home,’ he said as if speaking to a group of kids.
All three of the new best friends seemed very happy to be around one another as they climbed inside.
A few days later, it was discovered that the goat belonged to Kyle’s next door neighbors, Chris and Shawna Huggans, while the other Labrador also lived close by, meaning there are plenty more adventures in store for this trio!
