Dog-Eat-Dog: Westie Mugged in New York City

The snow, it seems, has turned New York into a dog-eat-dog struggle. Donna McPherson says that someone mugged her 10-year-old Westie outside of a supermarket — stealing Lexie’s green wool coat, with leather trim and belt.

McPherson, 42, is shocked, asking “how could anyone steal a coat off someone’s back in the freezing cold?”

She seems to assume it was a person rather than another dog. Of the various breeds, I would look for a well-heeled American Rat Pinscher, Black Mouth Cur, Cretan Hound, Pariah Dog, Plott Hound, Shocker or Shockerd, and any retriever in the area.

  1. Since you brought up Toyota, eniobob, isn’t it weird that their slogan is “moving forward”?

  2. This is off topic,but all this snow has me longing for the spring time,and the yard work that comes with it.

  3. I have a bottle of Vitamin D on my desk and forget to take it. Thank you for the information.

  4. I know this is off topic but I have been inspired today, and would like to be of service.

    There has been a lot of coverage recently about the need to increase our Vitamin D intake, in order to prevent (in addition to the obvious Rickets) many diseases that have been linked to Vitamin D deficiency. (IMHO) this very informative and entertaining seminar by Dr. Michael Holick, PhD, MD, and the Director Vitamin D, Skin and Bone Research Lab, at Boston University School of Medicine may be helpful to some who wish to know more about this vital substance.

  5. Whole Foods is more glamorous now. Sprouts is the poor man’s Whole Foods. There is a Sprouts by house. I think I am going to Southlake this afternoon. Went to ENT this morning. He thinks that the dentist may have screwed up.

  6. Yes, I do. I was there, they also have a Sprouts something like wholefoods used to be but certainly a lot more glamorous.

    I remember being at a pay phone in the early 80’s late 70’s in Austin on a Sunday morning hung over pretty bad. A person came across the street from wholefoods and started yelling at me for polluting her space.

  7. Of course always Ribs and Brisket at my house.

    Still experimenting with the proper propellant. Some may call it bar-b-que sauce. I call it dipping sauce. Others still claim that it is a secret ingredient that NASA uses a a base for it rockets. It taste good to me.

    But what would you expect from someone that pickles there own Jalapenos?

  8. Well if you walk the dog it is generally not a problem. If you have Tommy Smothers walk the dog, you still have no problem. The problem starts when someone else wok your dog. Whats for dinner?

  9. It was probably a cat from the lower east side. She’s lucky they didn’t steal the dog.

    When I was a kid one of my older brother’sfriend used to drive around with his Doberman in the car and would leave the windows down, of course, when he went into stores, freinds houses, etc. Always boasting he had a fool proof theft deterrent with his dog, surely no one would dare take anything from his car with a Doberman inside. Then one day he cameback to his car and found someone had stolen his dog. Dogs are the valuables you need to protect why would you leave them outside unattended. Especially in New York!

  10. I can see the headline now.

  11. And after years of counseling the dog decided that NY was not the proper place to be tied up outside of a store while the master went inside where it was warm, tore though the city terrorizing other dogs regardless of size and was finally taken to the farm that the master had bought.

    Ok, now, she bought 2 coats to make up for the one that was stolen. Did she like ask the dog if it minded being dressed up in these silly things?
