This afternoon we took Bella to the vet to have her snout looked at. She got a rather deep scratch on it. They sent her home with antibiotics and a germ killing soap I have to use a few times a day on her.
Anyways while we were there, a lady came in and said her dog fell out of her car. They asked how fast she was going........
She said....50 mph!!! and he fell out of an open window.
Poor thing had little wobbly legs and was bleeding from the opposite end of its nose.
This is why our dogs are tethered in the bed of the truck and surrounded by toolboxes and a gate across the back of the truck. So they can't jump out.
They took him back into a treatment room so I don't know the outcome. Hopefully this story will make people think twice about letting their dogs ride unsecured in the bed of a truck or riding in the car with windows all the way down.
