This is the kind of shit that makes me seriously murder-y.
Pikachu, an adorable 12-15 pound, gray black terrier, who is 15-years-old and deaf, was STOLEN from in front of Mr. Lime fruit shop on 7th Avenue between 8th and 9th streets at aproximately 4:30pm yesterday. How do we know that she was stolen? BECAUSE WE HAVE THE VIDEO OF THE MAN WHO SWIPED HER.
Pikachu's mom and dad called the police and reported that they were very responsive and helpful, watching the video and spending about an hour looking around the neighborhood for the asshole who did this. Unfortunately, they came up empty handed.
However, we just got some amazing news: a good samaritan found her wandering on 8th Ave last night and brought her to a vet. They saw a post on Pikachu on FIDO this morn, called Pikachu's parents and the happy family was reunited. PHEW!
Poor Pikachu's adventure brings up a valuable lesson for the rest of us dog owners: don't ever leave your dog tied up alone...anywhere. Even in Park Slope.
Now go back to eating your Thanksgiving leftovers and getting fat.
