Coming home from church today I saw a dog running down the middle of the road. Medium sized, yellow, old, no collar. I pulled over and called to him. He came up to me but just wouldn't get into the car. My house was about a mile away, so I figured I would go home, grab a leash and some treats, and hopefully walk him there. Then I could figure out what to do with him. When I got back to the dog he had been hit by a car. He was dead in the middle of the road. So I buried him. This just makes me sick. This wasn't a dog who lived around here, someone dumped him thinking a nice farmer would take him in. Except that old dog wasn't going to trust anybody but his person. If he had gotten into someone's chickens or gone after someone's sheep he would have been shot. If he hadn't been run over or shot, he likely would have starved to death. PLEASE! If you can't take care of your dog anymore, or don't want to, take him to the shelter or put him down yourself. Don't just set him loose in a completely strange place hoping for the best. Doing that just means your dog will die lonely, confused, and scared while he's looking for you! Sorry to go on, but he was probably a really nice dog. I wish I could have helped him out.
