    Brooklyn Terrier Mugged; Doggie Coat Missing

    Updated 10:15 AM EST, Wed, Feb 10, 2010



    Now that's just cold.

    A Brooklyn woman says a mugger stole a doggie coat right off the back of her mild-mannered terrier.

    Donna McPherson says she tied up Lexie, her 10-year-old Westie, outside a Park Slope supermarket "for two minutes'' while she bought milk.

    She heard a "funny bark.'' When McPherson went outside, she found the little white dog shivering. His green wool coat, with leather trim and belt, were nowhere in sight.


    "How could anyone steal a coat off someone's back in the freezing cold?" the 42-year-old investment banker complained to The New York Post. "I was so angry, but in the end I was grateful that it was just the coat and not him."

    McPherson said the dog coat was worth $25. She looked all over the neighborhood, hoping to spot the burglar who stole the coat off her pup's back, but couldn't find him.

    McPherson said that, fortunately, Lexie wasn't wearing his pricier Burberry, but she bought two new coats anyway to make it up to him.

    Dog coat stealing is apparently a very lucrative business.

    Really, if it ain't nailed down in NYC it's walking. A dog coat off it's back?! Retarded. I left a golf umbrella in the vestibule of my UES apt building for thirty seconds bringing stuff up one flight to my apt. Came back for it right away, gone.

    NYC is a dog-eat-dog place, man.

    Larceny from a dog/cat/pet is not a UCR crime. Not sure if larceny of a dog/cat/pet is UCR. Have to check.

    ahh but you forget, that an item taken off of a "victim" changes it to a grand larceny.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    Maybe it's a robbery? How do we know the dog wasn't mugged at gunpoint?
