Stupid Pet News - A New Feature

Hi. Mom and I had a chat and we have decided to add a new feature to our blog - however between you and me I think it should actually be called stupid human news involving innocent furry friends. Anyhow, Fridays Mom and I spend extra time together and in todya's Boston globe was the following story from California.

I gotta tell you this human mom sounds a little nutty to me!!

Mom allegedly tells girls to steal dog

March 29, 2007
ANTIOCH, Calif. --A woman who allegedly instructed her two young daughters to steal a neighbor's dog was arrested on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and grand theft.
Nora Vasquez' arrest Wednesday came a week after her daughters, ages 7 and 9, told their elementary school principal they snatched the missing mutt on their mother's orders.

A witness to the daylight dog-napping earlier this month told investigators that he saw two girls jump out of an SUV and grab the pooch from a neighbor's porch while a woman shouted at them to hurry.
"We wonder why our children wind up the way they do," said Antioch Police Lt. Pat Welch. "It's unbelievable someone would take a 7- and 9-year-old and encourage them to do that and think it's appropriate behavior."

Vasquez, 35, acknowledged she told the girls to get the dog, a 1-year-old Chihuahua-Pekinese mix named Guppi, but told investigators she thought the pet was in danger from another dog nearby, according to Welch.

Vazquez was released on $20,000 bail, Welch said. The Associated Press could not find a listed telephone number for her.

The sisters first came under suspicion in Guppi's disappearance when a school librarian noticed one of them reacting strangely to a sign the dog's owners posted offering a reward for its return. The pair was summoned into the principal's office, where they confessed, according to Welch.

Man, those poor girls. What a terrible way to start a childhood. If the woman thought the dog was in danger, why didn't she contact the appropriate authorities?? What a dummy.
