Didn’t sleep last night…have some tough choices to make…things on my mind. Feel pretty crappy this morning. Take my dogs for their morning walk…as I’m walking out of my gated in community, I see the sun trying to peak out from behind a cloud and I think to myself “Maybe today will be a good day”.
I open the gate to exit my community and the first thing I see is a dog hobbling past with two broken legs…the rear right has been completely pulled from the socket and the front right has a clean break a bit above the wrist.
I know the dog. It lives outside some very poor peoples houses. They feed it. But looking at their homes I’m sure they couldn’t afford to do much more for it.
I took my dogs for their walk first (they have to go 1 and 2) then took them back inside and went out to catch the dog. I spent about 15 minutes looking and couldn’t find it. Gave up started to go home…then decided to give it one more shot (all the while secretly hoping not to find it…the right choice and the easy choice are rarely the same)…and found him. But he won’t let me get near him…he’s not afraid of people…just me.
We have a few scooter chasing dogs in my area…which is dangerous for the dog as well as the scooter rider. So to discourage them from chasing me…and hopefully others as well… I turn the tables on them. And while some of you might think it’s cruel…it works and they don’t chase me.
Anyway…back on topic…the dog won’t let me get near it…and I don’t feel like running at the poor thing and tackling it.
I’m up for suggestions…but I’m not Stray Dog nor bobepine…wish I had their strength…but I don’t.
Here is a video I shot of the dog in question an hour ago: yourfilelink.com/get.php?fid=35162 it’s 4 megs.
