OMAHA (KPTM)- It's the kind of reunion that can melt any heart.
"He's my best friend, I don't want to cry," said Yolanda Kynard.
On Wednesday, Kynard was anxiously waiting at the Nebraska Humane Society.
She has a couple of things to be nervous about; her daughter, Paula Hunt, is a contestant on American Idol and she lost her 2-year-old therapy dog Tuesday.
"It was just like he disappeared," said Kynard.
Kynard has multiple sclerosis, or MS. She said her Chihuahua Cleveland has been her constant companion.
"We're thick as thieves-we're inseparable. And I think after this, we're going to be a lot more inseparable," said Kynard.
She said she was coming home from Lincoln Tuesday when Cleveland may have gotten out of her car. She said she had stopped to pick someone up, and he may have left to go to the bathroom.
"We were hysterical," said Kynard.
She said they found him after her family member checked the lost-and-found section under the Nebraska Humane Society.
"I can't wait to see those little teeny little paws," said Kynard.
When Cleveland made his appearance, Kynard couldn't stop from smiling and crying.
"You're so beautiful, I missed you!" said Kynard.
Officials at the humane society said when you lose a pet make sure to first file a report online or in person.
Also, make sure to check the lost-and-found web site because every stray that is found is photographed.
