I live in a small town of about 2000 people, the population swells a bit because we’re on the shores of Lake Winnipeg, which is big enough that you can’t see the opposite shores, so its like a faux ocean. So it can be a hot tourist spot.
This january my dog broke her collar and wandered around town. Within 45 minutes of her escaping, the dog catcher is called and she is caught.
Shes a small bull mastiff, so she does look a bit intimidating, and being such a small town, she was easily found.
Fast forward to this Sunday night. I’m at home, reading T-Nation articles, the dog has just been let out, shes in her kennel. I hear her start to bark, I get up, but before I reach the door, she stops so I go back to my laptop.
My wife gets home 20 minutes later, and asks where the dog is, since she didn’t greet her at the door.
I look outside and go to her kennel, there are foot prints leading from our lane to her pen, and her gate is unlocked and open.
Some asshole actually came into my yard and let my dog out.
I’m now leaning towards the belief she has actually been taken because the dog catcher has not had anyone call in about her, he has looked around town all day for two days (not alot for him to do anyway, so hes spent alot of time driving) and I’ve searched all over town as well.
So my dog was actually stolen. Who steals a dog and why?
Fucked up world.
