David Charvet may not triumph on ABC’s sports competition “The Superstars,” but he and fiancée Brooke Burke must already feel like winners after the couple was reunited with their lost chocolate Labrador Retriever after a nine-month absence.

“To our amazement, we spoke to the man who had taken him in nine long months ago,” Burke wrote in her blog on “Someone found Jake in our town, had no idea who his owner was (Jake had no collar) and gave him to a neighbor who took him in and cared for him.” 

“Today, the man took Jake to a vet for a random check-up and for blood work. After telling the vet the story of how Jake came into his life, the vet decided to scan Jake. David had an identity chip put in Jake as a puppy. Immediately David’s info and phone number showed up and the vet was obligated to contact us,” Burke wrote.

Burke and Charvet hurried to the vet’s office and reunited with their dog. “We rushed to pick up Jake. The man who took him in was kind, thoughtful and apologetic for not thinking to have a scan done,” Burke wrote.

But as thrilled as they were to have Jake back, they felt “equally sad for the gentleman who was losing his friend of nine months. It was bittersweet,” Burke wrote. “Thank God for honest people who are selfless enough to do the right thing. I hope something wonderful happens to [Jake’s rescuer] Audy in the Valley, for caring for Jake and letting him go.”
