A man and woman have been accused of stealing a $3,000 English bulldog from a pet store, and if their perp walks are any indication, they have no regrets.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office won't release their names or mugs until they are formally charged, but their performance in front of media cameras was good enough on its own.

The guy walked by reporters making a sort of hybrid bark/whining sound which we guess is made by $3,000 English bulldogs who have been dognapped.

The woman laughs and giggles and generally looks like she can't wait to get back to another dognapping.

The two walked into a Pet City pet store and, while the woman distracted store staff, the man hustled the dog out.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
