“Dear PoPville,

After our walk this morning [Sunday], my dog, Dax, and I stopped by Compass Coffee on 8th Street. I tied her up to one of the steel beams attached to the building to the left of the door. I had finished ordering coffee when one of the staff members pointed and asked if that was my dog. A man had untied her and was walking away with her towards T St. I ran out of the door and caught up with them. We struggled for the leash for a second and I pushed him to the ground. He got up and ran off. Dax is a bit of a nervous dog so I stopped to check her out and try to calm her down. He had removed her gentle leader and had wrapped it around her neck. Other than that and being scared, she was fine. I walked back into Compass and grabbed my coffee, talked with a few people about what happened, and then went home. It was a bit of a crazy morning, but, luckily, it all ended okay.”
