I Found a dog lying in the middle of the road just been hit by a car.

I was on my way home tonight and came over the hill to find a dog lying in the middle of the road. It was still breathing, I pulled over to the side, the car behind me swerved quickly to miss the dog, the next car drove straight over the top of the dog. I ran out into the middle of the road and picked up the dog just before the next car came. I put the dog on the side of the road to have a look at him. He was still breathing and conscious, he had at least one fractured limb and I don't think he could feel his back legs. Two other people came running up to me. One guy had seen the dog being hit, it made the car swerve and he almost hit that car. The car that hit the dog did not stop. That guy knocked on the first door and people came out and they recognised the dog as belonging to a friend of theirs. They where not sure where the owner would be. They sent someone looking. Another person then said she probably would not have a car to take the dog to the emergency center or the money to fix it. So was there any point waiting for the owner, someone needed to take the dog to the emergency center. Their friends where just going off to work, I had to go and pick up my children from cubs. Someone rang RSPCA ambulance and they said they would come and pick up the dog. I asked one of the neighbours to get a blanket , I then wrapped the dog in the blanket and  left the dog with the neighbours. I went and picked up my children from cubs, on the way home we stopped by and the ambulance was just leaving with the dog. I was a bit frustrated with how little I could do for the dog, but really the best thing to do was have the RSPCA take the dog.First Aid for Dogs: What to do When Emergencies HappenFirst Aid for Dogs: What to do When Emergencies Happen

Scoff Stopper

We bought Rainbow, our Labrador a new dinner plate, the idea is to help our labrador eat slowly, and I think it is working very well. Normally she eats her food in about 10 seconds, now it takes her about 3 minutes. I think it only adds to her enjoyment of food. As a Labrador eating food is one of her greatest joys, and being able to extend it out makes a big difference. for more information
