George Brett enlists Twitter to help find his dog

Here's a happy story -- which, well, is right in my wheelhouse.

There's nothing that gets to me quite like the search for a lost dog -- and when it's the lost dog of my childhood hero? Well, you've got me hooked.

Here's the good news first:

The Hall of Famer lost his black labradoodle named Charlie on Tuesday night and put out an APB on Twitter to find him.
Brett joined Twitter earlier this month and quickly found a good way to utilize it. Of his 54 tweets to his more than 10,000 followers, 40 were about Charlie, including an attempt to get the hashtag #FindCharlie trending. Luckily the Charlie returned to the Brett family's Mission Hills, Kansas home on Wednesday and we can all breathe easier.

Here's a photo of the happy couple:
