This Belfast bar's stolen porcelain dog was returned with an apology and a Creme Egg

The only way to apologise, isn’t it.

IF YOU’VE NEVER considered nabbing a piece of pub property after a night on the beer, you’re lying.

One customer in Belfast pub, Sweet Afton, took a liking to their porcelain pet and decided to take it home with them. The customer apparently immediately regretted it, taking the dog back with a note of apology and a Creme Egg for the trouble.

Cederick was taken from his place in the pub, leaving owners to replace him with Frederick.

But it seems the owner was premature, as he found a letter typed:

I was in your establishment over the weekend having a fabulous time, soaking up the atmosphere, admiring the decor and enjoying the gratuitous amount of shots I clearly shouldn’t have been drinking when my eyes were instantly attracted to your lovely white porcelain dogs on the shelving at the back of the bar.
In fact, I was so taken with said dogs and concerned for their welfare with being in a drinking establishment where they maybe weren’t getting the attention they required, when I convinced myself it would be a good idea to adopt one of the them.

The mystery dog thief continued…

You must believe that as an animal lover my intentions were always pure.
However, having reflected on my actions over the weekend I wondered if you might be missing him or her so I have decided to return it to its rightful owners.
Please accept my sincere apology for any upset or offence caused by my drunken antics and I promise next time I’ll behave and not drink copious amounts of alcohol.
I have also provided the other dog with a Creme Egg in case it has been pining for its friend over the weekend.

Well, who could say no to that apology?
