to Vegas tonight to be with her and the kids. My sister's husband left her over a year ago...so they are alone. My hubby and I are driving out there with Rocky tonight and won't be there till around midnight. Her house was destroyed and things were taken. She said every drawer, closet, file, pictures, paper are all over the house. Mattresses were turned, jewelry taken, new Xbox, electronic stuff gone. Cops were there and dusted for finger prints, got them and DNA. They think it was kids, not professionals because they left the brand new TV.

Please say a prayer that we get there safely...it is about a five hour drive.
Also please pray our dogs like each other. She has a lab mix that is 10 years old. They put the dog in the closet and had things piled up on him...so upsetting for them to find him like that..poor baby.:angry:

Dianne - how horrible. You feel so terribly violated when something like that happens. Sending prayers to your sister and to you for safe travels. How scary they would do that to the dog but thankfully they didn't release him from the house or hurt him physically, tho what they did is harmful enough. ugh - what's with people or kids. I'm not sure if it's kids -- they're more likely to take something like tv's, stereos, quick stuff to sell rather than ransack.

OMG, Dianne -- this is terrible. How very sad for your sister and her family and how scary for them. It's so kind of you and George to drive up there to help her. I know that it will give her a lot of comfort and strength. I'm sure that she's terrified to be alone.

I know that Rocky will do OK with her dog. He'll just hang out with Mom and Dad. :)

How upsetting to find her dog in the closet -- but at least he wasn't hurt by the burglers.

Hugs to you and prayers for your sister and her family.

How very awful...that happened to us several years ago here in Hawaii..While at work we were stupid enough to leave are back windows open so the trade winds would cool the house. The day before I said to my DH we need to stop, kids are out of school right now they get bored. Sure enough the next day they came in went through everything. We were very fortunate they only took change and some gift cards. All my jewelry was right there in sight, a camera, pictures etc..The police said most likely kids or someone else that would come back. Needless to say I felt violated!! Had alarm systems installed in both homes within a week.

It's so very kind of you to go and make sure she is fine. Atleast the dog was not hurt. Give your sister a hug for me.

I'm glad they're safe and their dog wasn't hurt..
People do such terrible things. I hope they have insurance and can get an alarm too.
I'm so sorry this happened to them.

Thank God they didn't poison the dog---that often happens!
What a frustration w/all things strewn, etc. And the personal feeling of violation!
So many here in Greece get robbed like this.
Sending up prayers for wisdom, and that you can create calm in a difficult situation.
hugs
