People online are widely sharing a letter stuck to a lamppost in Toronto, Ontario, that has a heartbreaking request for a burglar.
The unknown writer says a man got in their house robbed them, taking their cash and their DSLR camera, but they don’t care about that. They only want the precious memories of their dog which they had stored in a memory card in the camera.
The sign reads, “To the man who was in my house and robbed me. Keep the cash, and my DSLR, and whatever else you took.
But if you have the memory card from the camera, please, it has photos of my dog’s last day alive on it. I cannot replace those photos.
Please throw it on to the porch or put it in the mail slot. Or mail it. Please. She died a few days ago. I cannot lose those photos as well.”
Being robbed is totally sickening, and the victim shouldn’t have to put up with any of their belongings being taken, but it shows just how much they love and care about their dog that the only thing they want back is those photos.
The internet was just as touched by the writer’s plea and people have been spreading the letter like wildfire on social media with hope that it might reach the thief.
A Facebook user, Saoirse Morgan, is one of the people who have shared the letter. On a post, Saoirse wrote, “Photo taken at Bloor and Lansdowne. This is simply heartbreaking. I hope this person does the right thing.”
The post was shared more than 27,000 times and has received lots of comments from people hoping the robber will be kind and return the memory card.
They say dogs are man’s best friend, and we could agree more. Once you have a dog in your life, they are not just your pet, they become family.
So you can imagine the pain and heartbreak this Ontario man must be feeling when the last memories of his furry best-friend were stolen from. We hope the thief gets to see this and does the right thing. Please share widely.
