That Time More Bizarre Crap Happened To Me...

skirt: in the shop       blouse: Asos       tights: Target

Me and the Indie, everyday for lunch we go on a walk. You see, I read whatever book has me consumed that week and she wanders around sniffing other dogs rears and trying to catch the feisty ducks in the pond. This lunch deal we have, it works quite well you see. So there I was walking and reading, walking and reading when all of the sudden I notice the Indie wasn't by my side anymore. I kept looking around and all I could see was this lady walking her dog. So I kept calling my little scruff's name"....Indie....Indieeeeeeeee....IIIIIIINDIEEEEEE!" Guys, she was nowhere to be found.

Now just so you know Indie is the most loyal little lady around. If she wanders at all she's always in sight, she's attached to her mama you see. So I knew something strange was going on. So I started to walk faster, searching the park, when all of the sudden I noticed that the dog that the lady across the park was walking looked a lot like my fluffy little Indian. But I thought to myself, "No it couldn't be. That would be cuhhhrazy."

So I kept looking, and slowly got closer to this lady and her dog. And you know what?! The closer I got I realized that this nutzo lady had taken Indie, put her on a leash, and was hightailing it out of the park with my fluffy ball of scruff. I had no clue what to do. Guys this junk doesn't happen to people! It just doesn't!! So with no clue how to act I started to yell, "EXCUSE ME!!! EXCUSE ME!!" and the lady wouldn't turn around and acknowledge me. So I started running at this lady at full speed, in my dangerously high work heels, and began flailing my arms while screaming, "HEY LADY!!! THAT'S MY DOG!!! HEY YOU!!! THAT'S MY DOG!!!! HEYYYY I'M TALKING TO YOU!!" She finally stopped and with the sly embarrassed look of a thief muttered, "Oh this dog?", completely flabbergasted I said, "YES. That dog. It's not yours." to which she sheepishly took Indie off of the leash and booked it out of the park. Guys. What the what??? Did what I think happened really happen! Did some cray cray lady try to swipe my dog? Please give a woman some sanity and tell me what the crap just happened?! I feel like I'm on crazy pills here!

  5. That is horrible and insane! I didn't realize there were dog-nappers prowling the parks, searching for innocent little pups to snatch! That is just atrocious! Had that been a child instead of a dog, people would have been up in arms. I think you reacted very sanely compared to what I think I would have done... :)

  12. This outfit is too cute! That's absolutely crazy! I would have jumped on her like a spider monkey for my pups that's for sure. I heard while working at the Humane Society that lately a lot of dogs have been getting kidnapped, how ridiculous is that!

  13. People are crazy. And mean. I'm glad you got your puppy back from her in a sane manner. I think I would have punched her in the face.

  18. Sarah, this is my advice to you:

    Put your dog on a leash!

    Love,

  19. WHAT? Oh my gosh, what a psycho. If that were me, I would have let the words start flying,(and probably even some work high heels to) because no one, NO ONE, messes with my pup. So, I completely understand how you feel.

  20. That is really weird. You know that lady had to have been watching you guys take your walks at lunchtime if she came prepared with a leash. Who does that? Beware of Crazy Dog Snatching Lady posters should be made and hung in the park.
    And I agree, maybe putting Indie on a leash is a good idea.

  21. umm yep...sounds like she was straight up trying to Cruella DeVille your poor little pooch :( well, actually, I hope she wasn't stealing her to make into coats....forget I said that.

    maybe she was lonely and thought it was her lucky day because she found a stray? or she works for an animal rescue program?

    at least she didn't lie and was nice about giving her back! still, super scary!

  22. This seriously sounds like a scene from a movie. I can see it playing out in my head with the fancy spinning camera angles and everything.

    Seriously though, you let that lady off easy. I probably would have ended up physically assaulting her. No one steals a member of my family and gets away with it!

  23. Oh my gosh. Seriously????!!?!! What a crazy person. WHO DOES THAT??!?!

  24. I can't believe things like this happen. How can someone do such thing?

    ReplyDelete
  25. What the eck??!! That's insane!! What a weirdo!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Whew, I'd LOSE IT if someone tried to take either one of my dogs. Unfortunately, there are plenty of people out there who steal dogs.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yup that story is something I'd say doesn't actually happen to people.

  28. Oh my goodness! I was just screaming out loud "WHAT THE?!?!!?" repeatedly when I read this. I want to say I can't believe it, but I can. There's been a lot of dog thefts in my neck of the woods recently. I'm so thankful that I have a big great dane in a fairly unique... hopefully no one would try to steal her? Now I'm paranoid >.<

    So happy you ran after that lady and got your pooch back. Give her some extra squeezes from us all!

  29. WHAT?!?! This lady is like, totally Cruella Deville minus the dalmation coat! I'm so glad you were able to sort everything out. Madness!!

  33. Whoaaa that is so FREAKY!!! Wow. I'm glad you managed to run after that woman and you got your dog back. Did she actually have her OWN leash? That's SO WRONG! Gah I would have been tempted to call the police on her - next time (hopefully there isn't one) something weird like that happens, take a photo of the person so you can report them.

    BTW. Is Indie microchipped? At least that way you always have a sure way of proving she is yours.
