Danny Thomason, the dog’s owner, said: ‘It was painful. “It’s like one of my kids just got kidnapped.”
Thomason is refueling his car at 535 FM 1960 in the spring. Thomason said he left his dog in the car when he went inside the store to pay.
“I looked at him while I was waiting at the check-in counter,” Thomason said. “I glanced and didn’t see him. Sometimes he went into the floorboards when he was alone. I hadn’t gone more than a minute or two, and I turned around and he was gone.”
Thomason said he reviewed surveillance footage from the gas station, which confirmed his 5-year-old dog, Yogi, was stolen.
“I saw a dark Chevrolet truck driving next to me, and the guy got out and put Yogi in his car and drove off,” Thomason said.
Thomason went to his daughter and ex-wife’s home to celebrate the holiday. He said the Harris County Sheriff’s Office took several hours to respond, so Thomason never finished his dinner.
“It certainly wasn’t the Christmas I imagined,” Thomason said. “He is my friend.”
Thomason said he and Yogi are inseparable and drive everywhere together. When he left Yogi in the car, Thomason left the window cracked to prevent him from getting heatstroke. This time, he left the door unlocked during checkout, so Thompson said he feels part of the blame.
Thomason is offering a substantial reward for any information leading to Yogi’s return. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
Thomason is still hoping and praying for a Christmas miracle.
“We want him back. We are very close,” he said.
