Well guys and gals, for those if you that have asked or wondered what you do with a dog if they get sick or hurt out on the dog was hit by a car tonight. I'm at an after hours vet (24 hour emergency vet) as I write this. They are doing x-rays of head, chest and pelvis. I've dropped $2000 so far and thats as long as nothing major shows on the x-rays. I was in my companies yard, we had just got groceries. I put her and them in the truck then called her out to ride back to park the car. I guess she was freaked out by the groceries ordeal and took off. She was gone maybe 2 minutes as I searched for her then I saw her walking toward the building. She was on the steps at the front door. Bleeding from all legs and nails shredded on 1 or 2 of her feet from bracing for the impact I'm told. She couldn't get back up the stairs and her back end collapsed a few times. Anyways she should be alright. Hopefully nothing comes up on the pelvic xray. Stupid dog. She never runs off. I should have leashed her like i normally do but hell it was 2200, in a dark yard in the country with only one road anywhere near us on the other side of a berm. She'll have a cone of shame on for a couple weeks to keep from ripping stitches and licking wounds (apparently dogs don't have the cleanest so if you see us walking don't laugh too hard at her cone, she's sensitive 😂.

I'm glad that she wasn't killed. It's enough grief just seeing a beloved K9 companion hurt and in pain, losing one can be like losing a child.

Here's hoping for a full recovery.

Here's the sad girl whining in pain. Her hip was out of the socket so they popped it back in. No breaks or tears noticed. Just settled into the truck, its 0220 and we have to leave by 0600 to make delivery. Cost just over 3k total so far but the money is irrelevant, I can make more but she can't be replaced. Thank God for doggie pain killers and muscle relaxers.

Ouch! Glad to see she is okay.

I always enjoyed having my little terrier with me. She loves to run free with no leash, and sometimes I would let her if the conditions would allow it. Most of the time they need to be on a leash though. Thanks for letting us know Mikey. It's a great reminder of the responsibilities we have when we carry a pet with us.

Your girl looks quite content to be back in the confines of the truck. I hope she recovers well.
