Dogs can be sly......
« on: October 15, 2012, 08:43:47 AM »
As a dog owner, I naturally have a very soft spot in my heart for animals especially dogs that are injured or abandoned. Around where I live, we typically have plenty of both.
Yesterday while leaving the semi-rural local store I frequent, I noticed a dog laying on the shoulder of the road, on the grass between the ditch and highway, 4-5 feet from the blacktop. Her head was up and looking tentatively towards the store parking lot, with people moving about to and from their vehicles. Each time a person passed in the parking lot, sheíd raise her head as if waiting for someone to see her and help.

Enough I thought,,,. I backed my truck between her and the road, blocking a bit of traffic lane, got out to see what I could do for her. With my truck blocking part of the road, I started to gather peoplesí attention. As I approached the dog, she laid her head down in a submissive gesture, whimpering. I knelt down beside her, petted her a bit, and started to feel for broken bones or swelling. No collar, no tags of course. I couldnít find any tender spots that she was favoring. Iím thinking, thatís a good sign.

A couple women came over asking what happened, poor doggie, seeing what I was going to do, anything they could do, etc., etc.,,, Iím thinking today is Sunday, I may have to take her home with me till Monday when my Vet opened. The poor dog slowly raised up when the women came over and started to smile and pant a bit but still whimpering as I felt all over her body for injury.
About that time, a man comes out of the store to his car at the gas pumps, opens the car door as he notices us, he gets a concerned look on his face, quickly comes over asks whatís going on. I told him I thought the dog may have been hit but she doesnít seem hurt. He saysí Hell, that dog ainít hurt,,, Angie !!!,,, git yore azz back in that car !!!ĒÖ. The dog jumps the ditch runs 20-30 feet and jumps in the open car door then into the backseat, sticks her head out of the open back window looking at all of us at the roadside, all the time, her tongue hanging out.

Well, Iíll be dangedÖ. After much laughter and explaining to the man, He said he had commanded the dog to lay in the grass as she always does when he stops there for gas. As the women wiped their tears of once sadness to laughter, the guy thanked me for my concern, me standing there blocking traffic, the car w/ dog leaves and the dogís head out the window looking at me, tongue flapping in the wind,,, or at me, I donít know.

I've seen people do this in our neighborhood. A car will pull in on our street, let a guy out, and he will sit in the grass with his head down.
Then one of our neighbors will stop by to ask if he needs help. Then the guy tells a story of his son having cancer and he needs money for health care. People give him money. A little later, the car shows back up, the guy gets off the shoulder of the road, jumps in the seat and down the road they go to the next neighborhood.

I'm like you Cypress, I have a soft spot in my heart for side ditch animals.....but a lots less for side ditch people.

welp, I guess operator error could have caused the double posting,the ol' fat finger issue. At the time of the posting I did change the title, after that is anybodys guess..

Good story, Stump!  I picked up one like that a couple of years ago, but it wasn't near anything like a store.  This one turned out to be very sick and didn't make it through the night.  I have no use for anyone who would toss the dog before it is even dead! >:(
