Twitter user Matt Frost recently found out about a secret involving the family dog, Murdoch, that rock his world.

And yes, he thankfully shared it with the rest of the world.

Get ready for a rollercoaster of emotions, because you’re about to go on a wild ride 34 years in the making!

It starts simply enough…

Oh, a puppy! I’m intrigued. Tell me more…

And of course Murdoch was the best doggo ever!

And then, Murdoch got taken. In broad daylight!

It seemed like there was nothing that could be done…

But Murdoch did something about it…

Yay! Happy ending!

Or is it…?

Nicole was on the case!

And it wasn’t easy at first…

But she never gave up.

What were they doing to poor Murdoch?!

And then… the big escape!

And that’s why their beloved puppy came back. Because Nicole wouldn’t have it any other way!

What a happy ending!

Would you have stolen the dog back?

My answer: YES!

PS – Nicole is a bad ass. That is all.
