Bernie Orchestrates A Sweet Reunion

by Ryan Boulding @rboulding /

It was a nightmare come to life.

Picture this: You go camping. You have a great time. You pack up, get in the car, leave. Then you realize that your best friend is missing.

That's what happened to Laney, a young Colorado Avalanche fan that went camping at Lake Pueblo with her parents. Once home, they searched the car, frantically looking for Laney's best friend, a mini Bernie plush doll that she took with her everywhere she went.

No sign of it.

They contacted the campground.


They looked to buy a new one.

It wasn't the same Bernie. A new version had replaced the treasured companion that Laney had spent countless hours cherishing.

Laney's parents didn't know what else to do to comfort their deeply saddened daughter, so they reached out to the dog himself for help.

The clever pup hatched a plan to brighten the day of a fan of his, and an adventure ensued.
