OMD Mondays!

Hi everybody! And welcome to another Monday of weird/wacky/beautiful/sad stories!

Today I am writing a story I found and wanted to share with you, and get some of your views on how it ended...

The headline of this story is called "bonehead of the week" 
"Dog napper gloats online about stealing dog, then returns her"

OK, here goes...

A couple from Texas, decided to go out to dinner. The temperature was cold and their family dog named Heidi ( a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog)
was left in her run in the backyard for a couple hours while they had dinner.

Upon their return they realized their beloved Heidi was not only gone, but the lock to her run had been cut, therefor instantly knowing Heidi had been stolen.

The couple were offering a reward for her return, and had a friend of theirs post Heidi's disappearance on a site called "Reddit" , and that's when things took an even stranger turn!

They received a response to their missing dog ad, which turned out to be a neighbor of theirs.....this is how the response read:

Quote-->  Hi there A**hole,
You don't really know me and I don't really know you but I have seen you a few times over the last few years. Mostly when you'd let your old dog sh*t in my lawn and also when your new one would do the same. Thanks for leaving it all for me to pick up too. I really appreciated it.
But even though I don't really know you, I do know of you and watching you put on such a show to find your dog absolutely disgusts me. Pretending that she was stolen only because she was outside for three hours. For starters, why the f*ck did you leave your dog outside in 16 degree weather for three hours!
End quote

And the response even went further then that, as well as posting a picture of the couples dog with a note saying "thanks for rescuing me"
(Actual Picture of Heidi)

Reddit of course blew up from there, with violent threats among other things.

The couple eventually got their dog back, arranged a meeting with the dog napper, and thankfully Heidi came home safe and sound.

We are glad Heidi is home with her family, but now i'd like to ask my readers, were both parties "boneheads" in this particular situations?
Heidi is a Swissy, and they can withstand very cold temperatures, but was it still wrong of them to leave their dog out for 2/3 hours while they had dinner?

Please leave your thoughts in  the comments at the bottom and let me know what you think. Thanks!

PS: I told you all we had a  bunch of snow come our way, so here are some more pics of what I mean! As promised!

 Have a great Monday guys!

  1. My mom would never leave me outsite in the garden, when she is gone, because there is no couch in the garden for me to lay on ;-)

    1. Yea, my girls are both indoor dogs as well.....they would be lost without the couch! LOL

  2. My Dad wouldn't dream of leaving me in the garden there's to many nutters around.


  3. Mummy once went to work not realising she'd left the back door open - I had a great day running in and out BOL. But our garden is enclosed with no rear access so I was safe luckily. However, it's not something that she would do on purpose.
    It's likely we don't know the full story but Heidi, but it does sound a bit off to me.

    1. I completely agree! And the note from that person was very nasty!

  4. During normal weather we our outside all day, They Work, and we enjoy being out there, always four or five large bowls of water, and during summer our wading pool is always fresh and clean. During cool blast, we have very warm and enclosed enter dog houses, but Dad come home at least twice a day to check on us. During temps like 0 to 20 degrees he has even taken us to work.

    The Mad Scots
    Pees; if they are turly cold weather type pups and have a place to get into 2 to 3 hours isn't to bad, and they were very concerned. Now that clown that took her and send a nasty note about it, would have gotten a near death beating from our Dad!

    1. Yes, and I would also say it depends on where your living and how you yard is set up.....where I live it seems I always hear about dogs being stolen out of peoples yards, so I wouldn't leave mine out. Plus even tho my girls are huskies and love playing in the snow, they only like being out when I'm with them lol so I think they would be quite upset with me lol

  5. I don't think I know enough to judge the people in this story. I wouldn't leave my dogs out for a couple hours (ever). Even when I had a fenced yard, they were never out more than a few minutes without me checking on them. I don't know if the people who took the dog really believed she was mistreated. I don't think stealing the dog was the correct response. It is a complex story for sure. Enjoy the snow. Lee and Phod

    1. Yep, it is a complex story.....lol I agree. And none of know either side to a full extent, so it is very hard to judge, but fun to hear everybodys thoughts on the subject :)
      Thanks so much for coming by!

  6. Well yes and no, because it depends, how thick is her fur? Maybe she likes to be out? Yes because..Well obviously someone one see her and think "Wow, what a beautiful dog.....I want her!" So they took her. I think maybe they didn't really think the dog was mistreated, they just wanted her, also as Lee and Phod said.
    Enjoy your snow!
