A DOG owner is appealing for help to trace her missing pooches today after thieves got into her garden and stole her two black Labradors.

Anna Phillips, 55, arrived home in Dallinghoo on Wednesday to discover six-year-old Blossom and one-year-old Penelope were missing.

She is now desperate to be reunited with her beloved dogs and is appealing for anyone with information to contact her or Suffolk police.

Mrs Phillips, who lives at Merton Farm Cottage in the village, said: “They are close companions.

“I got Blossom when I separated from my ex and she has been a really huge help as I really had a huge gap in my life.

“I just can't imagine my life without the two of them.

“I live in the middle of the country and I spend so much time walking them.”

Mrs Phillips left the dogs at home on Wednesday morning with Blossom shut in the large garden and Penelope in the outhouse where the dogs sleep.

When she got back, the dogs were gone and Mrs Phillips said it would have been impossible for Penelope to get out of the outhouse and shut the door behind her.

Mrs Phillips said: “Sometimes people think they can take them for breeding but my two have been spayed.”

The dogs were taken between 8am and 5.45pm on Wednesday.

Blossom is described as chunkier than Penelope and has a very fine, white line down the middle of her chest.

Penelope is athletic and her fur turns a brown colour in warmer weather.

Both dogs have been microchipped and described as friendly.

Police are investigating the theft of the dogs and are asking anyone with information to call them at Woodbridge police station on 01473 613500.

Alternatively anyone with information about the dogs can call Mrs Phillips on 01473 277051 or report it at www.doglost.co.uk
