Two dogs taken from South Side yard

NEW CASTLE — Two miniature Schnauzers were taken from a South Jefferson Street backyard.

The dogs’ owner called New Castle police Monday to report the theft. She said she has been searching for the dogs since they went missing Thursday but called officers after learning that another person’s dogs had been stolen about the same time.

The owner said the dogs are a 10-year-old male named Shilo. He is light gray, weighs about 18 pounds and when last seen was wearing a green collar with an expired Lawrence County dog license. He is valued at $440.

The second dog is Harley, a 9-year-old female with a salt-and-pepper coat, weighting 13 pounds and valued at $550.

The owner said a neighbor told her someone driving an unfamiliar vehicle had taken the dogs from the yard, but no description was provided.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
