|Houses Overlooking the Promenade|
Well, it turns out, I was wrong. Yesterday morning on the front page of USA Today was an article entitled, “Kidnapping Dogs for Money Rises 49% this Year.” According to the article, the worsening economy has resulted in a sharp increase in dog theft. Dogs have been taken from homes, pet stores, shelters, cars, parks, and city streets. All types of dogs are stolen, but small breeds such as Yorkies and Pomeranians are abducted more often than others. Dog theft has become very lucrative. Thieves resell pets, return them to their owners for a reward or simply keep the dogs for themselves.
BTW: The Brooklyn Heights Promenade offers some great views of the Manhattan skyline. I guess Patty didn't have it so bad after all, especially for someone who could "only see the sights a girl can see from Brooklyn Heights."
