Different kind of outing for these dogs

It wasn't the kind of outing that some Chicago dog-owners had in mind for their pets. But it had a tail-wagger of an ending, with everyone back home safely.

Five dogs were in a van owned by a Chicago pet-sitting service, when the van was stolen.

The doggie day-care service picks up the pooches from their homes in the morning and delivers them back at the end of the day. An employee left the van unlocked while he went to deliver one of them Monday afternoon, and that's when the van was stolen.

Tuesday morning, the van was found, with the five dogs still inside.

Police say no arrests have been made.
