I came home from work yesterday to find out my house has been broken into! Took my laptop, camera and jewelry. Poor Chance was is in his crate the whole time and is now a neurotic mess. All our training to reinforce his confidence is shot. He is glued to me. I am devastated. I have lived in my house for 24 years and nothing like this has ever happened before. Have to get my whole back door replaced. They ripped out the whole handle/lock mechanism and broke the glass. My yard is enclosed so they also had to get over a six foot privacy fence! Just can't believe this. Happened between 12:30 pm and 5pm. thinking someone saw me leave after lunch. Even the police can't believe someone broke in since I have a warning sign on the door about the dog. Everyone in the neighborhood knows I always have a large German Shepherd living here! They must have looked through the slider and seen him in his crate. My poor baby! At least they did not hurt him physically. They did not come into my upstairs office or I probably would not have this computer. Thank goodness I had nothing personal on my laptop, just pictures, but now I have lost all the pictures from my camera and my laptop. What can I do to help Chance get over this? He is only 16 months old. He was not ready to be left out of the crate during the day and I feel awful for him. He is so stressed out and so am I!
