I had a very sad afternoon today. While heading past the park to fill my car with gas, I was flagged down by some folks who found a dog on the side of the road who had been hit by a car. It took us awhile to locate the owner, and when we did he did not seam concerned about his dog. We had to basically tell him he had to do something that he could not just leave his dog that had been hit by a car lying in pain in the grass along side of the road.
I really donÃ¢â€žÂ¢t ever want to have to deal with this kind of horrible situation again. It is not a pleasant experience trying to hold a dog with a broken back while it is in pain knowing the whole time that the dog will probably have to be put down. I urge everyone to head warning from this incident and be sure to leash their dogs when going from their vehicle into the off leash area. Not only is it the rules, it is also a good safety practice.
