Earlier today I was planning on posting these shots of Lady Gaga in Rome wearing a really great dress (yesterday before the news), in town to work on her next film, but then decided I would save them for tomorrow’s Outfit of the Week. But then… I heard about her dog walker getting shot and her dogs getting abducted.


Last night in LA, her dog walker was out with her three French bulldogs when they encountered an assailant who shot the dog walker, and took two out of the three dogs, Gustave and Koji. The dog walker is now in hospital and Gaga is offering a $500,000 reward for information that will lead, hopefully, to the return of her dogs, “no questions asked”. Here’s a photo of Gaga with Koji:


And this is Gustave:

And here’s Asia, who is safe, but we shouldn’t leave her out:

Asia looks like she could f-ck you up – and that she wants to f-ck up the person who took her siblings. 


We have two dogs, Barney and Elvis, so just reading about this is traumatising, can’t imagine how it would be for the dog walker and for Gaga, who is so far away, and now not knowing if they’re OK, and whether or not they will be able to come home…

To be honest, if it were me, it would be “no questions asked” too. I know, I know, the criminal should be taken care of but first, I’d just want my babies back.

I have a good friend who has a Frenchie. He says that where he lives, Frenchie kidnappings are common and he’s heard of someone being attacked for theirs. According to TMZ Frenchies are commonly targeted and highly prized so it may very well be that the criminal didn’t know that they were taking Gaga’s dogs – not that it matters, this would be horrible for anyone, famous or not. And especially horrible for Gustave and Koji who aren’t home right now and must be wondering where they are, why they’re not among Asia and their people. Dogs are proper family members. When they are taken away from a family, the family is broken. May Gustave and Koji be reunited with their family soon.
