Weekend Worries

Saturday evening I received a phone call from my husband telling me that our black lab, Pete had just been run into by our neighbor who lives up the hill. I left work early and met them at the Kansas State Veterinary hospital. When I saw my beautiful dog walk through that door with blood pooring from his mouth I almost screamed.
Our neighbor had hit him with his truck and just drove off and left my dog there...luckily our neighbor across the road saw it happen. How can someone, especially a neighbor, run over a dog and just drive away without an "I'm sorry?"

Pete, ended up having a complete fracture to the jaw and two more small fractures toward the back of his mouth. He has to have approx. 4 teeth removed. I am thankful that it was not worse and I am hopeful that the healing process will go smoothly...

But am I wrong to be very VERY upset with the inconsiderate neighbor who is supposedly a retired Veterinarian?! 


  1. Yikes!! Sending healing wishes to your sweet dog. What a crazy neighbor.

  2. Oh, poor baby! Hoping that your little guy heals soon. I can't believe that story- a retired veterinarian? No, you are not wrong to be upset!
