But who knows?
Stranger things have happened and Ms. Riley sure seems to be very persistent.
For Peggy Riley, the theft of her two 9-year-old Yorkshire Terriers, Baxter and Cooper, is still painful to talk about. She tears up quickly at the mention of their names.
“You would think after 71/2 months I could pull myself together,” Riley says. “It's just hard not knowing where they are and if they're OK.”
Riley's dogs were stolen from inside her home during a robbery on April 22. The dogs had just returned from the groomers, so perhaps they looked like puppies to the thieves.
