A couple in the Cold Lake, Alta. area is hoping that someone will spot their three stolen Great Danes.
Cold Lake RCMP say the three dogs – Honey Bee, Sherlock and Sheldon – were stolen from their home near the northern Alberta community on Sept. 19.
Janet Edmunds bred the dogs herself and has raised them since they were puppies. She says she has no idea what happened to her pets and says they were quite friendly.
“They wouldn’t go kicking and screaming and howling,” she said on Monday. “They are show dogs so they’re used to people touching them, walking them, moving them. It’s really quite normal for them.”

At around 6 p.m., he came home to feed the dogs and wasn’t greeted by the normal bounding toward the sound of their food.
