I am writing to say a huge thank you to all the people who gave me moral support and help when three of my whippets were stolen from my house a couple of weeks ago. To the local vets and dog clubs who gave it publicity and posted photos of the dogs on their websites, to the local police who were wonderful in spreading the word locally, and to Dog Lost, Dorset who posted it on Facebook and people as far away as Cornwall who were looking out for my dogs as a result.
It was a terrible two days till I got them back, when they were dumped nearby, soaking wet and without their collars. It was a miracle to get them back and I was so relieved - I realise how very lucky I was.
The Police thought they had been taken by travellers and as a result of all the publicity, they had simply become too hot to handle.
Thanks also to my wonderful friend, Christine, who drove around the area on Friday evening in search of the dogs.
I can attest that this has been one of the worst experiences of my life.
I would also like to add my thanks to the wonderful peopleof the breed who spread the word on Facebook - I got my dogs back and I shall be forever grateful to everyone involved.
