and my laptop with ALL the wedding stuff was taken 🙁
(i was backing it up on Mozy online, so hopefully everything is there, i haven’t checked yet).
it SUCKS! i wasn’t having the best day to begin with, and then came home to broken glass and mess all over. but i am so glad they did not hurt the dogs (looks like they tried to distract them with their treats that are on a table by the door — knowing my friendly dogs, they were probably like, oh thank you, never mind you broke the window to get in…). UGH. i am so creeped out. fortunately for us we just don’t really have anything valuable besides the computer — so this wasn’t the best house to break into….

Oh no! I would be so scared. I’m just glad everything is ok, no one being harmed. What wedding stuff was taken- stuff on the computer? Or physical stuff? ((HUGS))

The same thing happend to me in Sept. Although they got my laptop, camera, and ipod. It’s creepy knowing a stranger was in your house. I never knew how much stuff I had saved wedding wise on my computer until it was gone 🙁

i feel you it happen to me once when we used to live in an apartment and felt so horrible… i advice to you is the same one my best friend gave me… put an alarm system… when i bought my house i put an alarm system the second day with SAFEHOME company… the system was free and i only pay $30 monthly…
1 month living the house we had somebody trying to break in while we were sleeping, the alarm went off, and the police was in out house in less than 3 minutes… it was scary but i dont want to imagine what will it happen if we didnt had the alarm

How scary! The important thing though, is that your dogs are there and safe… You can always replace the computer.
So sorry this happened to you!

excatly – the computer is totally replaceable of course, and THANK GOD they didn’t do anything to “neutralize” the dogs – i’ve heard of thieves just giving them poison. i am also glad they didn’t mess around with the broken glass on the ground and hurt their paws! eek.
i do feel really creeped out and would love to get an alarm – but we’re renting and i don’t think the owner would go for it. but we’re moving this summer and that will be a big criterion for me now!!!! i also would love not to live on the first floor, but with dogs it is so much more convenient. but boy, it was SO easy for them to just break a window, and since we have a fenced in backyard, no one could see them. i’m afraid they may have been casing out the place, which is even more creepy — i am usually home all day and was only out for a couple hours.

Make sure all of your credit cards are accounted for and any credit card bills. If you notice anything suspicious make sure to report that to the police. I know it sounds silly, but also check your credit history report if something comes up because you never know about ID Theft if someone stole mail possibly laying around.
I’m so glad you are okay and your dogs are fine. I would feel the same way about my little pup!
Do you possibly have the serial number for your computer? If so, make sure you get that to the police as soon as possible. Depending on who stole it, they may or may not try to pawn it. If your police department has access to pawn record databases then they might be able to locate the laptop if it’s ever pawned.
Hope this helps and I’m really sorry this happened to you. Very crummy and I hope your sense of security in your home comes back ASAP!

So scary, I’m so sorry this happened!
You could always talk to your landlord, it doesn’t hurt to let them know what happened and see what their thoughts are on getting an alarm.

I’m sorry to hear that goodheart! We were broken into a few weeks ago as well. They took DH’s laptop plus another old one we had and a few other bits and pieces. Worst thing was the video camera WITH OUR WEDDING VIDEO STILL ON IT. Our dogs were also unharmed, thank goodness. I really feel your pain, it’s such a horrible feeling!!!
