I know you don’t normally do this…. but my bike was stolen from my secure balcony 3 floors up (yes three floors!!) over the weekend in Dublin. Apartment below us had the same thing happen to them too…Not sure what day as I was away for the weekend but if anyone spots someone selling a red FUJI bike (above) around town or saw somebody suspicious with a ladder on the North Circular Road during the weekend  it would be a great help.

My cat Puddy (above) is missing since May 30, from Grove Park Road,Glasnevin Dublin 11. She’s a very pretty tabby, 3 years old? We searched the area for hours calling her name, put up posters and put 100 flyers through neighbours’ letterboxes. She went out last Monday night and just never came home, which is very unlike her. Can you help?





The ‘smartbike’ by Amsterdam-based bike maker Vanmoof comes with unique features, lets owners never have to worry about theft again.

Eequipped with GSM and bluetooth tracking, the ‘smartbike’ will always stay connected throughout a city.

but even if a thief gets past those features, vanmoof is introducing a ‘peace of mind’ guarantee: if the bike is stolen, a recovery team will use the bike’s anti-theft tracking technology to locate and return it its rightful owner.

if they can’t recover it within two weeks, vanmoof will replace it….

Georgie our one eyed cat went missing over FOUR years ago having climbed under a neighbour’s car bonnet to avoid a heavy rain shower.

The neighbour got into the car and travelled from East Wall [Dublin 3] to a garage in Sallynoggin [Co Dublin]. A car mechanic got a shock when he opened the bonnet and the cat fled.

We drove out to the area to search for him and put up posters. We gave him little chance as only having one eye was such a disadvantage.

Yesterday we received a call from the DSPCA Rathfarnham to say he was handed in. Shook, starving and quite unwell but still with the same old attitude.

What’s the lesson? Always chip your pets…

Yesterday at 1pm my elderly aunt’s two dogs were stolen by two males, one with a bike from outside Lidl and the Taphouse, Ranelagh [Dublin 6].  It seems like dog theft is on the rise.

Thankfully one of the dogs was found late last night in Kilmhanham but the older one Mosey (top) who is an 11-year-old, microchipped female Irish Wheaten Terrier, is still missing.

My Aunt would be eternally grateful if your followers could help and highlight the dangers of leaving pets unattended.

Mosey was found safe and well, she was taken in by a staff member from Focus Ireland [homeless agency] last night near Thomas Street [Dublin 8 and they found one of my posts online. Thanks for all your help!

Max is missing since 10am this morning. He got out of his house on the Clonkeen Road [Co Dublin] near Cornelscourt [Foxrock, Dublin 18]. Please if you live in the surrounding areas of Blackrock and Cabinteely keep an eye out for him. Owners sick with worry. If you see him take him to your nearest vet to be scanned as his chip is registered to owners.
