When a thief unhooked her dog’s leash from outside a Manhattan shop and took off with him on the day before Christmas, little Mia Bendray was devastated. But on Christmas Day, her wish came true, and she was reunited with her beloved cavalier King Charles spaniel, Marley — thanks to a Good Samaritan.

Tina Cohen, a high school teacher, saw a man in a park trying to sell a dog on Christmas Day.

"I said that's not right,” she said.

I don't live in a big city, but it seems kind of dumb to tie your dog up outside a shop and leave him unattended.

Far worse things than being stolen could have happened to him.

I agree with you. I can’t stand when I go into a store and somebody has tied their dog outside while they go shopping. The dog never seems happy. I think I worry more about it than they do. You ever know how an animal is going to act around strangers or if it’s nervous.

I have two dogs and I would never leave them alone outside a store or even in the car.

Hopefully, the little girl has learned a lesson.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppies are sold by breeders starting around $1500. They are expensive dogs.

People should stop treating their pets and their children like extraneous luggage to haul around.

Cavaliers are really nice, but very small dogs. At less than 20 pounds, anyone could have just walked by, picked him up, and carried him off. This little girl (and her dog!) are beyond lucky to be reunited by a good samaritan.

Bless the good samaritan. She paid $200 out of her own pocket because she suspected that the dog was stolen. She made this little girl’s Christmas so wonderful. Acts like this... make me less jaded and keep hope that there are good people in the world. Thanks, Altariel... for making me smile by posting this!

Thank you for the ping. Good ending, and here’s hoping that her parents will make sure that her very expensive puppy is not left unattended again.
