Schneider's Christmas Wish Goes Unanswered

All John Schneider wanted for Christmas was his missing dogs back. Maybe next year.

A few weeks back, Schneider had his car stolen with two dogs -- intended as Christmas gifts for his kids -- still inside. The car was recovered, but the ten-week-old Yorkie named Paisley and the ten-week-old Yorkiepoo named Marley never were.

Schneider wrote in an e-card, "Sadly... No puppies came home. We all appreciate your letters of concern and good wishes."

Things might have gone awry with the new dogs anyway -- Schneider says, "Living in the woods with Coyotes makes it hard to keep up with little dogs anyway!"
