hello everyone,

i read a couple news stories i thought you might find interesting.

the first is about a new drug for motion sickness in dogs:

FDA approves drug for carsick dogs - Yahoo! News­

the second story is a very sad story about thieves!

The original article can be found on here:­

Gunmen dognap LA family's puppies, police say

(03-01) 18:24 PST Los Angeles (AP) --

Two men forced their way into a family's home at gunpoint and stole five
dogs, including four purebred Yorkshire terrier puppies advertised for
sale in a newspaper, police said Thursday.

A security camera caught the men, who posed as prospective buyers,
arriving at the home in the city's Koreatown section around 10 p.m.
Friday, police said. When a woman opened the door, one of the men pulled a
gun and the two entered the home.

The suspects ordered the family to lie on the floor and placed the puppies
and the family's grown Yorkshire terrier, Tan-ja, in a bag, police said.
The men then fled in a silver car.

No one was injured during the robbery.

"It appears the suspects answered the ad, knowing the value of the
puppies," police Lt. Paul Vernon said.

The puppies were valued at $2,500 each. Police said the victims were most
concerned about the loss of the grown terrier, the family's pet for more
than three years.

"This robbery is a good lesson to residents that soliciting buyers to
one's home can be a risky practice," Vernon said.

The family actually installed a video camera just a few days prior and the robbery was captured on video. Many local news stations are broadcasting it hoping the thieves will be found. The link below has the video as well as the story.­

I think this is so very very shocking and sad. My heart goes out to the family who lost both their adult yorkie in addition to the puppies. Sadly, given the popularity of the breed and the monetary value of our little ones (who are all worth more than money can ever buy in our hearts), it's important to remember to keep a watchful eye.
