Dear lovers of dogs and open cars
Almost immediately our fears were realized as she lost her balance. She had been tethered, however, with a somewhat long chain so she fell attached and was dragged along the shoulder of the highway.
We stopped to assist along with a couple of other motorists and got the pup wrapped and secured for transportation to a vet hospital. Despite a broken leg, grazing and a serious shaking, she will probably recover. But it could have been worse.
Let's encourage our friends with pets to be careful. Those harnasses are probably s little expensive but, given the alternative, a good investment.
