Breast cancer survivor reunited with stolen dog

Rev. Josephina Chavez had breast cancer, but didn't know it. Her beloved Maltese, Contessa, helped her discover the cancer by pawing at the area. The little dog may have been instrumental in saving Chavez' life.

Two days ago someone stole Contessa. Chavez, understandably, was utterly devastated. She went public yesterday, on a Seattle TV station, begging for Contessa's return. If you like happy endings, the video below is for you.
