CLEAR LAKE, Texas -- Friends and roommates have been posting flyers around Clear Lake of a stolen dog named Calypso.

The Blackmouth Cur was swiped along with a guitar and amplifier during a burglary at the University Trace Condominiums in the 1900 block of Bay Area Boulevard.

"You can replace a guitar and you can replace an amplifier," Drew Richardson added, "but you can't replace a dog."

Richardson's roommate Unity Minshew owns the 4-month-old puppy.

"I was just really angry, a whole bunch of emotions going through my head you know," Minshew said. "This was very personal. Who comes into a house and takes a puppy."

The burglary happened on Tuesday and the roommates are sure that the crooks burst through the French doors.

Minshew said she's had a tough couple of days.

"I definitely shed a couple of tears for her," Minshew said.

The roommates have filed a police report with HPD and hope the flyers will bring Calypso home.
