#WATWB Stray Dog Steals Stuffed Unicorn from a Store

It’s that time of the month again, the last Friday of the month where a group of writers share an article about something good going on around the world to deflect from negativity for the We are the World Blogfest, #WATWB.


Well, it seems this little stray dog had an attraction to a stuffed unicorn that he was determined not to leave behind – no matter if legal or not!


Stray dog kept stealing a stuffed unicorn from a store, so animal control bought it for him


Thieves are usually apprehended by the police. But for this four-legged shoplifter, the authorities had to make an exception.

A big stray dog couldn’t keep his mouth and paws away from a stuffed purple unicorn at the Dollar General store in Kenansville, North Carolina. And since he had no owner to buy it for him, the pup had to resort to “illegal” methods.

Every time a customer exited, the dog would dart into the store and go straight into the toy aisle to grab it. The Lab mix kept going back inside to steal the same stuffed purple unicorn, doing it on five different occasions!

It was evident that he really wanted that unicorn. But business is business, so a Dollar General store employee was forced to lock their door and ask help from the Duplin County Animal Control to take the thieving dog away.

But the pup ended up getting what he wanted after all. Samantha Lane—the officer who responded to the store’s call—purchased the $10 stuffed toy for him!

A simple thing to make someone happy. I’m glad that officer had the compassion to give the stray, lonely dog something to be happy about!

  1. Oh my goodness, Debby. This is such a gorgeous story.
    I’m so pleased the rescue people thought he must have lived in a home with a toy like that as that was exactly what I was thinking as I read your post. Such a heartwarming story. Thank you for sharing.


  2. What a fabulous share Debby and thank you for finding the time to post in the middle of your move…heartwarming and such a lovely story.. will share in the blogger daily tomorrow…♥♥


    1. Thanks so much Sally. As you know, I’ve been offline since Friday. First time I turned on computer with my coffee. Surrounded by boxes, the move from hell. I will catch up on your blog asap, thank you for sharing Sally. ❤ xxxxx


  3. Love this! Also love the fact that due to the publicity this act of kindness generated, this sweetheart found a fur-ever home. Thank you for sharing this and for being a part of #WATWB! Hope you have a wonderful week.


  4. Dog and unicorn look like soulmates to me. What a sweet story. You and Susan Scott always fill my heart with gless, publishing the kind and good on your blogs.

    Sending hugs and good wishes to you as you make the move, Debby . . . moving forward even as you grieve. Holding you in love and prayers now and in the days to come.


  5. This is the sweetest story Debby and a wonderful outcome of being adopted. No doubt the purple unicorn he was so desperate to have, reminded him of the days when he was happy in his former home. A big lesson. Thanks for this lovely post. Big smile on my side 🙂


  6. I can always count on you and Susan Scott to brighten my end-of-month with cheery news. Of course, the dog deserved the unicorn, apparently a soul-mate.

    Huge hugs as you continue the daunt task of moving, which you will get through in time. I can’t say that for your journey through grief. I recall the relentless ache losing 3 relatives from 2014-2018. You are not alone in this “long haul.” My prayers and loving thoughts are with you!


  7. What an uplifting, beautiful story, Debby. Funny as well, in a way. It would have been even better if someone adopted the dog. He looks cute enough. Thanks for sharing.

  9. So funny that the dog had to have that purple unicorn. I hope he also found a home. A sweet story, Debby. I hope you’re doing well. I read above that the move was awful, but I’m glad it’s done. Take your time settling in. Hugs.


  10. Thanks for sharing this inspiring story, Debby. Poor dog deserves all the happiness he can get, and the story got a happy ending! Perhaps we all need a purple unicorn in our lives… Stay safe and good luck with the move and everything.


  11. That is a GREAT story. I think during these challenging times, we all could use a stuffed purple unicorn to soothe our souls and minds. xo
