    Hi - I have received an email from a friend letting me know that dogs are being stolen in my area. This is what the email said.

    I have just received this from Hazel Lindsey who would like the information publicised as much as possible for obvious reasons.
    Three dogs, an elderly Yorkshire Terrier, a puppy Labradoodle and a Labrador have been snatched on or around Ash Vale ranges in the last 10 days or so.
    Two men, driving a red van, are targeting lone women walkers with pedigree dogs.
    Sadly the Yorkie is 12 years old and on constant medication. His elderly owner is quite distraught,as you would imagine.
    The police have been involved and are asking that walkers do not go out alone.

    Please cross post to any one you know who lives either near there,or surrounding areas,as the police think that the gang will now move on to another popular walking area.

    For anyone in the Surrey/London area please take care.

    Thats awful! I always worry about walking on my own, just because you just don't know what idiots are out there!! Look after yourself and your dog! :)

    Thanks. It is worrying. I do most my walking at 6 am in the morning and Sid weighs 8.5 stone so I don't think anyone will be able to take him and hopefully he would scare anyone away from touching my terriers. The worrying thing is my 12 year old son likes to take out his border terrier by himself for little walks, so I will have to stop him from doing this.
