It started by my leaving a little later than I would have liked. Maybe if I had been semi-on-time, my day would have been better?!
I left our driveway and started to drive down the road we live on. And then I had to stop and just stare. A posse of dogs was meandering around the side of the road.
There, lying on the side of the road was the little-shit-weasle-barky-dog who had obviously been hit by a car. It looked stiff. I felt so sad and it shook me to my core.
It was in front of our neighbor's house. Their truck was home so I pulled in. I rang the door bell and hoped they may have seen who did it. How could someone just kill a dog and drive off? Maybe my neighbor knows the asshats behind us who own the dog and could at least call and tell them. You know, presuming they would care. My neighbors weren't home. It broke my heart to see all the 'hood dogs staring in disbelief wondering what happened. I started crying watching Nyla sniff his body.
So I called my hubby who started calling neighbors we know. I went on to work. Fortunately, the wife of a guy we know waaaaaaay over yonder could get in touch with them. After an hour or so, I got a text that a car was up there and they were dealing with it.
It makes me So. Stinking. Mad. that those despicable and irresponsible people can own a dog. They got this little barky guy to keep their German Shepherd company. But he is so little, he just runs through the fence and they are so STUPID they just let it wander. Now that damn little dog paid the ultimate price. It's not fair. It deserved GOOD owners who gave a shit.
I've always disliked that dog because it barked, but I never wanted to see it harmed. They will probably get ANOTHER dog to be a "playmate" for their completely neglected, ignored, and lonely shepherd. Don't they know that you can't isolate a German Shepherd? It's probably slightly demented from having been chained up before they so "lovingly" put up a
I hope I never meet those horrible people in person, because I have a feeling my true opinion of what I think of them will come spewing forth.
Ice cream isn't even enough to save this day.
