I'd say anybody that would steal a gun dog should be taken out and shot. A Yorkie theft should merit only a severe beating.

Wait a minute! A Yorkie valued at $2500?! Ha. That would get you two started lab pups or one great finished dog. Must be the total theft value. I wouldn't give more than $75 for a potlickin' yorkie.

No, the report lists the dog at $2,500. It's not an official, value - just what the owner reported. The other items were listed separately.

Anybody that paid $2,500 for a dog has been robbed once already.

My cat was free but to me she is more valuable than any of the possessions in my home.
