My Neighbor, A Nice Elderly Lady, Had Her Little Dog Stolen on Sunday [View all]
We live in the West Village in NYC. She lives on the top floor. We have stairs, no elevator in the bldg. After the Pride parade on Sunday, groups of people stroll through the neighborhood. Many of them ring all the buzzers the apartment buildings in order to urinate in the lobby. When they rung the elderly lady's buzzer, she thought that the kids in the bldg were buzzing her. Her little dog ran out and down the stairs. The people that rang the bell saw the dog and stole her. At first, the lady was confused and didn't catch on about what happened. Then, she rushed down the stairs, but her dog was long gone. The police could not help her as they were managing the crowds.
The elderly lady is absolutely devastated. I know her and her dog, Trixie, a Yorkie, very well. Trixie would race me up each flight of stairs. She'd give me a lead and then rush past me to the top of the stairs. I use to call her the mayor of the building because she was so friendly to everyone. I'm very sad about this as well.
