Dear Editor: To the person who took my puppy from our farm near Giltner, I know you will probably never read this but I need to “vent.”
Wednesday, you didn’t just take a puppy from someone’s yard, you took a member of my family. Bit is one of my children and always will be. I don’t understand how someone can actually pull off an act like you did and sleep at night, but I guess you do.
You see, I’m not just someone who has “pets.” I have four-legged adopted “children” and each and every one of them mean the world to me. I have spent the last two days and nights crying because of your actions. I have looked everywhere, called everyone I could think of. I have friends who are unselfishly spending hours looking for her as well. I know that you will probably never get caught for what you did, but you will have to look at her every day and know that you kidnapped someone’s child.
I’m not going to curse at you or call you ugly names. Just the opposite. As I sit here with tears running down my face, I am asking God to bless you mightily. My God can use any situation for His glory and maybe you have a child who really wanted a puppy and you couldn’t afford one, so this is your way to make your child happy. I just want you to know that I forgive you. Please be good to her and love her. She loves to sleep in the bed with you and she loves to give kisses. Watch your socks though, they are her favorite.
To Bit: “I love you Bit and I will miss you every day. Be a good dog for your new family.”
