Really Bad Day

Mom got a call from her neighbor at lunch today, asking if mom was expecting anyone at the house. Mom wasn't. The neighbor's husband came and checked and the screen door was locked. Mom raced home to find that the house had been broken into. They did not hurt Lucky or I, even though I barked and barked and barked.

They took mom's engagement ring, a mom's ring that the boy and dad had made with the boy's birthstone, several sterling silver bracelets, some peridot earrings, some DVD's and the boy's cello. They ripped open the Christmas gifts and stole one of the DVD's mom bought for the boy for Christmas.

The good news is that the neighbor scared them away. So they didn't have time to grab all the DVD's. They also missed mom's diamond earrings. They were in the back of the drawer covered by underwear. Mom is not sure how they missed them, but mom is glad they did.

They also went to another house to steal and someone got their license plate number. They know where the car belongs and hopefully they will arrest them and everything back.

Mom is bummed so mom is going to clean up. I will keep you posted.

WOW! What a terrible thing. I am happy that Roxy and Lucky were not hurt, but some stupid beans were definitely acting like a bad Grinch! They stole your camera too! How terrible. I hope the police beans get those bad beans and that you get your things back, and that the Boy's cello isn't damaged!

I'm glad that you are OK. Please let us know what we can do to help.

Tell the police to have McGruff the crime dog put a big bitey on those lousy crooks.

That is horrible. I am glad that someone got the license number of the car. That was more than they did when my human got robbed. It was a while ago and again a neighbor scared them off, we think. Still we lost the computer and a piggy bank. They were just grabbing. Thankfully they were kids and didn't know to take some really valuable stuff that was out.

It's a horrible feeling to be robbed and if there is any way we can make you feel better, please let us know-

Tara said...

I am so glad you are all alright! That must have been very scary. Mom and Dad got broken into years ago before we came along, and still remember what it felt like. Their neighbors also saw them, some punk kids on bicycles!

I would really give them the bitey and scratch their eyes!

Punchbugpug said...

How horrible!!!! We are glad that they didn't steal the furry ones, that happened to someone we knew and they found the Puggy sitting on the side of the road later that afternoon!!! Idiots probably thought they could get money for her! Good thing your neighbors checked things out! Please post if there is anything we can do for you guys!

Karen Jo said...

This is just horrible news. I am glad that someone got their license number and that there is a good chance that you will get all your stuff back. I am so thankful that you and Lucky weren't hurt and I am sure you barked and barked and alerted the neighbor. These bad people need to spend a lot of time in jail. Please let me know if there is anything at all that I can do for you.

Dragonheart said...

Oh no Roxy! :( I'm so sorry to hear this. :( How can people be so horrible? I hope they catch the thieves and all your stuff is returned. *hugs* I am very glad that you and Lucky weren't hurt. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

We are so happy that no one was hurt and that you both are OK! How horrible that this had to happen.
we don't understand why beans do this type of thing. We hopes that they find these bad beans and that your Momma gets all her things back. You both did a great job of barking and barking and barking.

That is AWFUL! What kind of lowdown person would do such a thing? I am completely disgusted. I am so happy they had sense enough not to hurt you or Lucky. Then I would have been really TICKED OFF!! I hope your Mom gets all her things back. Please give her some kisses from me.

Oh how horrible. What is wrong with people?? So great that your neighbor was so vigilant AND that you and your sister are okay!! So so sorry that happened and I hope they catch the people and are able to return your belongings.

Cat Naps in Italy said...

We heard about what happened to you at the Cat Blogosphere and HAD to stop by. First we want to say how thankful we are that you guys are all okay and second we want to tell you how sorry we are. We know how upseting this is as the same thing happened to us during out last summer in America. They also got our human's engagement ring and, to this day, she is still very sad about it.

The good news is that they did not hurt us. We hid under the bed till the human got home. Though it is very upseting, the most important thing is that you guys are okay.

We hope that these bad guys are caught and that you get everything back. Keeping you all in our thoughts....

We read on Millie's blog about your break in. What a terrible thing to happen! It is good that nobody was hurt. I am keeping my paws crossed that they catch these bad people and lock them up for a squillion years!

Poppy Q said...

I am glad they did not steal all your presents, what naughty beans. Sounds like you have very good neighbours, especially being clever enought to get their license plate number.

I am sure you will still have a fantastic christmas, and I hope 2008 is a better year for you.

Melissa & Emmitt said...

Oh No! That is terrible! Thank goodness they did not take or hurt the pugs! I am also so glad that you and your family were not home and are safe. What a great neighbor to be so observant and to scare them away. A license plate number is a great lead! Hopefully all of your things will come home soon.

Fat Eric said...

Something is terribly wrong with those people. Such a terrible thing to do to walk into someone else's house and steal their belongings and also try to steal their Christmas! We're so sorry at the Sumo household and after all you've been through lately! Argh!
