I would be so heartbroken if someone took my dogs, so I feel so awful for Cynthia. I hope and pray that someone finds Holly and brings her back home where she belongs. I'm going to post this on my Facebook page to help get the word out.

This is very disturbing that someone would do such a thing.
I pray these no-good thieves cannot sleep at night and are
physically sick until they return this dog to the rightful family.
The Veterinarians all over should have a flyer with a picture
of Holly and her story. Some day she will have to go to a Vet
and she will be identified. Hopefully. Such horrible people.

Might the dog have run off through the broken door, to get away from the perps? Lets hope she turns up ... But you should start looking.

I will pray for this pet's return. I cried when I read this story. I would feel the same way if my dog were missing. Please Please come home Holly!!!!!!!!!!

Keep this incident in mind when deciding how to vote on prop 36. Do we really want more of these people on the streets?

This sounds a lot like a copycat dognap of the little girl's puppy in San Jose. Raise a big reward and someone with your dog will miraculously appear.

Please call KTVU Channel 2, KGO Radio, etc. to get a news conference for them to attend. Stand in front of your home with a poster of the dog and a reward offered if it is returned at a shelter or other safe place. Best of luck.

I live near a park and have noticed a few new "runners" in exercise outfits sort of walking/jogging and looking at the houses as they pass them. Two of them just this week around 8:30am got my attention because they didn't look like they were exercising but just really looking at the neighborhood. FYI in case same thing may be happening in your neighborhood/block and people are casing the area.

I urge EVERYONE (if they haven't already) to start up a Neighborhood Watch Program - Call the PPD - they can get you started. It has worked WONDERS for our beautiful neighborhood! Well worth the time and effort!

EVERYONE STAY HOME WITH YOUR ALREADY LOADED FIREARM, DO NOT ANSWER YOUR DOOR, DO NOT INDICATE THAT SOMEONE IS HOME, DO NOT CALL THE POLICE. NOW WAIT, WHEN YOU HAVE THAT PERSON AT THE FRONT DOOR, JUST HOLD TIGHT. WHEN THEY ARE IN YOUR HOME AND YOU ARE FEARING FOR YOUR SAFTY AND THE SAFTY OF YOUR LOVED ONES, TAKE CAREFUL AIM AND RELEASE YOUR PROBLEM SOLVER, BE QUICK BECAUSE YOU WIL HAVE TO SOLVE ATLEAST TWO PROBLEMS SO DONT MISS. WHEN THE PROBLEMS ARE ALL SOLVED NOW ITS TIME TO CALL THE PLEASANTON POLICE AND HAVE THEM CLEAN UP THE GARBAGE LAYING ON YOUR FLOOR.
