...and little Lola finds her family again
A LABRADOODLE puppy that was feared stolen has turned up a week later – three miles from home and still wearing its lead.
Nine-month-old Lola – a Labrador poodle cross – was one of two pups that vanished within a short distance of each other in South Gloucestershire.
After a report in Wednesday's Post saying there were fears they had been stolen, the other puppy – terrier cross Floss – was handed back to its owner Lauren Pinkett, from Kingswood.
And two days later Emma Leworthy, owner of Lola, received a phone call from a woman to say her puppy had been discovered too.

It was a relief for Emma and partner Bill who had bought Lola to cheer up her two children Olivia, nine, and Billy, seven, whose previous dog had died in April.
Lola had bolted from Emma's arms last Saturday when a brass band started playing during the Procession of Light and Colour in Staple Hill.
"She must have been just roaming the streets as she still had her lead on and needed a very good bath," Emma, of Staple Hill said. "We could not be more happy. Olivia and I both cried. Now she will be spoilt and get sausages for tea. The lady who found her will be getting a bunch of flowers."
