Dog theft at the beach
Last week as I walked down to the beach, two men and a pack of lurchers were heading back to the car park. Two of the dogs chased Bridie, and she disappeared. I shouted, staying where i was, as she has once before been chased, and returned straight to be after diving into the dunes to escape the pursuing lurcher (again). This time she didn't come back, and after a moment of indecision, I decided to walk back to the car park, and saw the blokes leap into their van and shoot off. I wanted to be able to ask them whe my dog had headed to, to tried to ge the numberplate. No sign on my dog at my car, so I headed back to the beach to search for her. However, the van stopped a few hundred yards up the lane, and they tipped all the dogs out, a puzzle. Then, my dog came racing up to me, from behind, ie where the van was. Did they really put her in? Feels like that's what happened. Then why release her...because she is spayed? Whatever, a scary distressing experience.
