Before we get into the bizarre tale of Dallas Cowboys WR Lucky Whitehead’s beloved dog being kidnapped, we have to warn you some of the language you will read in this article is pretty strong and can be considered offensive.
Unless you are a diehard Cowboys or Florida Atlantic University fan, the name “Lucky Whitehead” was probably not significant to you before July 16th.
Now, everyone with a social media account knows who he is.
The wide receiver caught just nine passes for 65 yards in his two NFL seasons. Last year, one of his three grabs was for 35 yards.
Whitehead’s specialty is returning kicks; there, he’s had more success: 33 kickoff returns for 846 yards.
But it was having something returned to him that made people take notice of who Lucky Whitehead really is.
Steve Jobs once said “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do." Grateful to be spending my birthday doing what I love! Cheers to 2️⃣5️⃣ ?: @42ndwitness #X #Luck2Fast
The tale is something out of a middle school mystery book.
It’s so unbelievable on the surface and an investigation is still underway, so it could take a while before anyone really finds out the truth behind it.
I've taken some time to collect my thoughts on this subject matter, and it's very heartbreaking to say that Blitz has been stolen from my home last Sunday. While out of town, Blitz was being taken care of by a close friend at my house and someone broke in and took him. Whomever stole Blitz has contacted my phone numerous times, demanding ransom money. I strongly advise you to stop and return my boy safely before it gets any worse! If you know of any details regarding Blitz's whereabouts or who may be involved in this, please contact me immediately. ? #repost
For now, all we can do is go by what is being reported and a handful of social media posts.
The story begins with the post above, which Whitehead put on his Instagram account on July 16th.
