    Couple Gets Letter, $20 From Woman That Took Dog

    I guess dognapping is a crime, but I thought this was bizarre as well.
    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,320105,00.html

    The holidays were sad enough for Kim Velevis and her husband after their lovable pug "Scooter" dug its way out of the backyard and disappeared on Christmas Eve.

    But the real blow came with the new year: A letter from an anonymous woman who had found the friendly dog and gave it to her daughter as a Christmas present. To compensate for Velevis' loss, a $20 bill was enclosed.
    "The puppy has a different name now, but he has plenty of food and toys. My daughter adores him. He sleeps with her every night," said the letter, which arrived Wednesday. (MORE at link)

    So she took the dog, knowing who the real owners were. That is stealing the dog. Does she really think $20 will compensate for the loss of a beloved pet. I hope the police will find her and the dog will be returned. I hope the people in that area make sure their children do not get near her with her Finders Keepers attitude. She might send $25 for a child.

    OMG , what a nutjob.
    Hope they looked at the postmark.
    Maybe putting fliers up in that area will bring info about who this person is and where the dog is.

    This little dog is all over our news

    It seemed to me that on tonight's local news, the official owners of the dog know who the dognapper is.

    What this woman has done is beyond mean. She stole a beloved pet from the family's fenced yard.
    I hope they get her for trespassing, theft, abuse of an animal, some sort of federal mail charges too.

    There are so many homeless dogs and cats, and groups out there for them, that they are easy to find if wanted, i don't understand people who have to go and steal others'.

    If I ran over someone's dog, and killed it, I'd be tempted to write a heartwrenching letter telling the owners the dog was loved by a little girl rather than just saying I ran over their dog.

    Then again, I always look for other explanations when things aren't right, and that was what I came up with.

    I wondered about this as well, glitch. I can honestly say i wouldn't be surprised by either scenario.

    I hope they get their dog back. It's horrible to do that to someone.
