I went out to take little doggie for a walk this morning and halfway through our regular route, I noticed a dog at the other side of the street. The brown dog approached us and started sniffing little doggie (which was normal) but since little doggie is not used to being around other dogs, she snarled. I shooed the brown dog away and crossed the street to keep little doggie away from brown dog.
Brown dog left us alone, he went about sniffing some plants and other things. Little doggie and I continued to walk and while we were going our own merry way, brown dog decided to cross the street again – just at the same time a car came driving past. The car wasn’t speeding or anything – but unfortunately – the car hit the brown dog head on. I heard a loud thud, a screech and the painful yowls of the injured animal. I was so shocked I couldn’t move I just stared. The driver made a 3-point turn and rushed towards the brown dog. He couldn’t move the dog for fear that his injuries would be aggravated and since it was Sunday, vet clinics were closed. We wanted to call a vet or the SPCA but we didn’t know their numbers. The driver, and another passerby tried to make the dog comfortable while myself and another passerby tried to find the owner. When we (myself and the other passerby) came back, the dog had breathed his last.
It just happened so fast and now, about 10 hours after it has happened, I am still disturbed by everything. I feel so sorry for the brown dog – he didn’t know what hit him. I can’t say he didn’t feel any pain because I’m sure he did. His painful yowls was proof that he was hurt. I just hope he didn’t suffer too long. I also feel for the owners of the brown dog. He had a doggie tag so he was someone’s pet – not a stray. OMG, I’m sure his owners will be heart-broken when they find out that brown dog had an accident.
No, I have no photos of the accident. That’s something I really do not want to have any reminders of. I will just share a photo of my little doggies. I hope nothing untoward happens to them.
