My best buddy got hit by a car, my Lab Bennie. We live way back on the hillside far from the road but Friday night the daughter and her friends decided to go for a walk just after dark to grandma's (across the road)... and Bennie followed. I always keep an eye out so I watched the flashlights as they made it to grandma's not knowing he had followed but then heard a horrific crash as a car sped by, hearing the girls screaming I knew it was Bennie. I grabbed a gun and got there asap to put him down knowing it was really bad. When I showed up he was sitting up covered in blood and oil, instead of being a puss he hobbled to the Can Am and crawled into the seat with a little help.... he wasn't calling it quits! I honestly didn't think he'd make it, he had an inch of his front leg peeled back exposing muscle and veins, a hole in his back leg, a cut over his eye, multiple abrasions to his head, bleeding from the nose and mouth and worst a 3" hole through his chest that you could see inside of.. I don't know how he even moved. I did what I could to patch him up and stop the bleeding until the morning. Fortunately my vet made an emergency trip to fix him up, talk about an amazing women.. she went above and beyond. After the vet the pain meds made him comfortable enough to sleep most of the day. Day 3 he's up and about, this dog is one tough dude! Looks like he's going to make a full recovery and hopefully the kids learned a lesson. I know he likes to chase cars, I've tried to break him of it but resorted to just keeping him away from the road, being so far from the road it's not hard. He goes where we go so if I go across the road he rides in the Can Am and goes inside with me.
