Tonight my 2 dogs escaped after my German Shepherd, Jack figured out how to open my gate. My Lab, Macy followed after him as she would not normally leave on her own. I was in my car looking for them when I see Jack running down the road. Just as I turn the car around to go get him I hear a loud screetch. Jack comes tearing up the middle of the street and runs back home, but no Macy. I soon get a call from the cops that she had been hit. By the time I got to the location she had already been taken by the SPCA to the animal hospital. (They were very quick!)
She is in stable condition and does not appear to have internal bleeding or fractures. However, she was hit on her front left leg and could not step down on it. No fracture means that it could be severe nerve damage which could lead to it being amputated. As long as she lives, I guess I'm ok with this.
I feel sick to my stomach! I'm going out tomorrow to buy pad locks for my fence.
Thank God for the wonderful people at the SPCA and at the Animal Hospital! They were wonderful!
Please send positive thoughts, energy, prayers.. whatever! They are keeping her overnight to make sure nothing goes wrong!
