You’ve seen them before. Those cute, furry little faces that practically beg you to steal them away from their negligent, drunk owner. Because of its primo backyard space and canine-friendly policy, Three Diamond Door has become a hotbed of dog thievery in the past month.
With temperatures up and people’s freak flags out, there’s no stopping Bushwickians from taking what they want from others. While there is no one specific person responsible for the rash of thefts, an anonymous Bushwickian who may or may not have stolen a cocker spaniel named Rojo stated, “Why wouldn’t I steal someone else’s dog? You think I got money to buy my own? Plus, people who take their dogs to bars are assholes, pure and simple. They do not deserve a dog.”
Amanda Innocente, a 27-year-old who suffered the trauma of having her pet dachshund taken right from underneath her nose, whined, “I was a little tipsy so I didn’t notice. I feel terrible. Pablo was my best friend. I know I didn’t always treat him like one, but he really was. And now I’ll never see him again.” Take a lesson from Innocente and maintain vigilant guard over your dog this summer, no matter what bar you’re at or how drunk you get.
