The news these days is often depressing at worst and frustrating at best. It’s easy to get caught up in the spin cycle and let it get us down. Never fear… The News Blender has you covered. Once a week we feature Something Good and, in return, all you have to do is tell us something good that has happened to you this week, something you are thankful for, a joke, a cute animal story, an inspiring tale of heroics, a Random Act of Kindness… SOMETHING good.
Today’s something good is being in the right spot at the right time.
Juliana Mazza, reporter for WHDH in Boston, was reporting on a dog that had been stolen from a vehicle the previous day. While setting up for her segment, Juliana noticed a man walking a dog.
The dog looked suspiciously like Titus, the 13 month-old German shorthaired pointer that had been stolen from the very parking lot Juliana was reporting from. Not only that, but the man walking him, Kyle Gariepy, looked suspiciously like the man who was seen on security footage leading Titus away the previous day. He was even wearing the same clothing.
The quick thinking reporter asked if she could pet the dog, and when Kyle said yes, she confirmed it was Titus by looking at the tag on his collar. With camera rolling she then began interrogating Kyle whose answers were insufficient – he said he was accidentally walking the wrong dog.
Juliana called 911 and police arrived moments later. They took Kyle into custody and called Titus’ owner, Greg Siesczkiewicz. Greg was thrilled to have Titus back and said he thought Titus was glad to have him back too. Judging by the tail wagging at their reunion, it would appear Greg is correct.
Gariepy was charged with larceny and breaking into a motor vehicle, according to Inside Edition. Juliana said, “Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that I would be the one to find the dog.”
Being able to help reunite pup and his human is definitely something good. Now it’s your turn… Tell me something good!
