Lost: Small White Fluffy Dog
Anyone who has walked down Manhattan Avenue today has probably noticed a large number of lost dog fliers have been posted. In fact, between Java Street and Greenpoint Avenue they can be found approximately every fifteen feet.
For those of you who have yet to see these missives they look like this…
Before I proceed, let it be known that being an animal person myself, I have nothing but the utmost sympathy for someone who has lost a pet. The previous having been said (or in this case, written), I do have to wonder what kind of person would honestly believe the above illustration and descriptive phrase “fluffy white” is going to be helpful in getting his (or her) dog back. In any case as luck would have it the above question was answered when I made a right turn onto Greenpoint Avenue.
In all seriousness folks, there are people in this borough whose livelihood is stealing dogs (small pure breds) and selling them. Please do not leave your dog unattended. What you might (not) find when you come out from the laundromat or grocery store will be no laughing matter. Just ask this guy*.
*If anyone has seen this small fluffy dog or know of its whereabouts (I am presuming he/she was taken Sunday, March 2), please contact his (or her) owner. He is clearly heartbroken. Thanks.
