Family distraught over theft of dog
'I just miss my dog so much,' daughter says
The break-in and theft of a family pet Monday morning has left a 15-year-old Pleasanton girl heartbroken.
"They stole my best friend and our loved pet Holly," said Cynthia Castronovo. "She is a 5-year-old Pug who is the sweetest and gentle pet anyone could ever know. I miss her so much and my family, including myself, is very distraught over our loss."
"It's very hard for me to grasp how such a despicable person could ever resort to stealing our family dog," she continued. "Holly is my very best friend, she sleeps with me every night, and to go about these days without her is very hard on me."
Entry was gained to the home, in the 400 block of San Gabriel Court, around 9-10 a.m. Monday morning by breaking a siding glass door. Also stolen were jewelry, all of the family's electronics and other valuable items.
But the worst part to Cynthia was that the thieves made away with Holly.
"I just miss my dog so much," she said.
