On Friday evening, several concerned readers sent along photos of flyers spotted all over the neighborhood for a missing miniature dachshund named Vivian.
Vivian is not really lost.
Turns out this is some kind of social experiment about kindness.
An EVG reader explains.
"I saw the dog tied up ... then I walked a block and saw the poster. I was like holy cow! So I called the number on the flyer and sent them photos of the dog and then went and waited with the dog. I was waiting a while and then a guy came over and said he was doing a social experiment with his friend on how people behave."
And how did the reader behave?
"I was totally stressed out and missed an appointment, waiting with the dog who was not really lost!"
