The Kriers have a family dog named Bo. They have learned to accept their pet's adventurous nature, but after all these years, he still knows how to surprise his family and make new friends.
Two weeks ago, Bo ran away from home. Laura Krier had let the animal outside to use the restroom, and he never came back. While out there, another dog was in the yard, and the two took off into the night.
Laura's husband, Kyle, explained:
"We looked all over the place for him and could not find him. We decided to go home and wait for him to come back but he never did. I went out in the morning to look for him and found no sign of him anywhere."
The family was unsure of where their four-legged friend could be, and despite all their searching, couldn't find their black labrador. Then they received a call from someone six miles away who nearly hit a black lab crossing the street with some friends in tow.
Kyle knew it was his Bo, and drove off to retrieve him.

When the dog came back, however, his friends followed. In the video, you see Bo, the black lab, get closer to the car as two specks bring up the rear. The white dog is revealed to be a light colored labrador and the third animal is a goat.
It's Homeward Bound for real, everyone!
The other dog and goat are named Libby and Ozzy and belong to the Krier's neighbors, Chris and Shawna Huggans. After all the animals happily piled into Kyle's car, he was able to get the pair returned to their owners.
"It was one of those stories that you tell your family and friends and they don't believe you, but then you watch the video and it totally happened,"
We absolutely believe it happened, and it's adorable.
Honest question: How does a dog get a goat to engage in shenanigans?
The animals are all home safe and sound, and the Krier's are surprised their adventurous Bo has brought so much attention.

"Just like that a story is published about our black lab the white lab and the goat! ❤️ This! My husband didn't expect this to be such a funny or big deal but I guess it is😂😍...and it is with a happy ending!!"
I'm not saying this is a movie happening in real life, I'm just saying if you listen to "Send Me On My Way" by Rusted Root while watching the video of the animals coming home, it would fit perfectly.
