Mom was hanging out the laundry yesterday and she heard a commotion on the street right across from our yard. She ignored it at first but after 15 mins, the little crowd was still there, so out of curosity, she popped her head out further and saw that there was a Husky lying by the side of the road. The poor doggie was lying there under the scorching midday sun, and mom was pissed that no one had enough sense to give the poor dog some reprieve from the heat, considering the fact that he's got a full coat. Some of the humans gathered there had enough sense to seek shelter under an umbrella or in the shade of a tree but no one thought of the dog!!! It must've been a good 32 ºC (90 ºF) on that day.

Mom grabbed some cold water from the fridge and the biggest umbrella she could find and went across to the 'crime scene'. The owner of the doggie was there and mom passed her the umbrella after telling her that it was meant for her dog.
The poor doggie was involved in a hit and run and was bleeding from his hind legs. The sh*thead driver who knocked him down did not even stop to help and a passing motorist took gave chase. Unfortunately the culprit refused to stop and the kind motorist who gave chase came all the way back to the scene and gave the license plate number to the Husky's owner.

The doggie's condition didn't look good and mom thinks he suffered a bad hit to his hind quarters. He was conscious throughout and mom said he even gave her a few feeble licks when she stroked his head.
Mom stayed with the distraught owner until the pet taxi arrived to take him to the Animal Hospital...

We hope that his injuries are not serious and he'd be back on his paws soon...

Hey there, Hershey
You have a very compassionate mother! It's always distressing seeing uncompassionate people. Hope that poor doggie survived...Oh dear, such a sad story!
Anyway, we love your new bed - it really suits you.
Sending lots of love and licks to you all!

Dexter said...

Good for mom! I think the humans panic and think if they drive away then it didn't happen or it wasn't so bad. I hope that he got to the vet in time.

We say thank you to your mommy for her kindness. We are so very sorry for the poor puppy. We'd like to get our hands on that driver....
We hope you two pups are well and that you are giving Mom and Dad lots of love,

I anger me that such people could do such thing. Don't even deserve to be on wheels on the road. I hope the dog is ok. Your mom have a very good heart.

Oh my goodness, that poor dog. How very upsetting for your mom too. She was very kind trying to help but we felt very sad reading that story.
In the UK this summer two police dogs died who had been left in a parked police car by their handler.
We were shocked that the handler did not know better. We dogs are not good in the heat and need humans, just like your mom, to look out for us.
We really hope the dog is OK.
love and kisses

Good thing your Mom was vigilant! Sometimes owners just lose their heads in moments of crisis. Other people should have helped sooner. I hope the dog is OK!

A big thanks to your mom for helping that poor husky. I hope he gets the care he needs from his owner. Hopefully someday, the nice people will outnumber the bad ones. We'll have to keep working on that!

Hurray for your Mom! It's amazing how stupid some people can be. We hope that the owner was able to get the dog the medical attention he needed.
