    Default more dogs stolen from truck/be on the alert

    Six dogs were stolen from a dog walker's truck on Tuesday afternoon when a dog walker briefly left the dogs alone to use the washroom at a popular dog park in Langley, British Columbia, Canada.

    "The dog walker/sitter had taken the dogs to an off-leash park in Brookswood and put them in the back of her pickup truck with a canopy so she could use the washroom," said Cpl. Holly Marks of the RCMP.

    "When she returned ten minutes later, the canopy had been unlatched and all six dogs were gone."

    This sucks, however I would certainly invite anyone that would care to let my dogs loose to give it a try. Two things would most assuredly happen, the racket set up by my chessie would alert most folks in a 3 county radius, the perpetrator would more than likely need to be rescued.
    I think more dog folks are going to have to invest in higher tech equipment to lessen the chances of this kind of thing happening.

    Mary Lynn .... The dog walker had put the dogs up in the back of her pickup (pickup had a fibreglass top), closed the glass and turned the t-handles, but did not lock the handles as she was only going to take a quick bathroom break.

    Update on the news this morning ..... These dogs were not stolen. Dog walker left the dogs in the back of her pickup in warm weather and the dogs died while she ran an errand. She disposed of the dogs and said they were stolen. Charges are now pending.

    How horrible!

    Instead of focusing on what’s missing, learn to appreciate what’s already there.

    Dirt bag. On another note with the reports of a dog truck being broken into and dog turned loose only to get hit on the interstate I have invested in keyed alike padlocks for those times when 1) I can't bring the girls into the hotel 2) I can't see the truck at all times at a restaurant and 3) if I have to run into a store and no one is available to stay with the truck and dogs.

    I may even looking to security cameras for the truck. I am sick of this sort of thing happening to the dogs, they don't have a say in any of it.

    Makes me sick to my stomach! To bad she will get nothing more than a slap on the wrist. I would not trust my dog with anyone.

    Omg. I was eating breakfast when I read this and felt like I was going to upchuck my oatmeal. I sincerely hope part of her sentencing involves never owning a pet of any kind ever again and never working at any job that involves animals.

    Idiot! In my opinion the law cannot hand down a sentence that fits this crime.
