Yesterday my husband was taking my son to the bus stop and on the way he saw a little puppy that got hit by a car. He saw it as he was turning and he saw that it lifted his head. My husband saw a semi coming and pulled over and stop traffic and pulled the puppy out of the road. the truck stop and someone from the wildlife had stop too.
My husband had to get my son to the bus stop so they sat there and husband took took our son and dropped him off with the guy whose house is at the bus stop. ( my husband has talked to this guy a lot and our boys play together). he went back and they called animal control, hoping they would get there before it died. They didn't make it. my husband sat there with the little puppy until it died.
He didn't want to lie to our son so when our son got off the bus he asked about the puppy and i told him that it didn't make it but daddy tired to save it. It broke our son heart and he cried. I felt bad because my son loves animals, he is 10 and has as long as i can remember says he want to be a vet or a marine biologist when he grows up.
I really don't understand how people can hit a dog and just keep going. I have stop for turtles. the day before this i was coming home after picking our son up and a squirrel ran out in front of me and my son said mommy don't hit the squirrel, i swerved and missed it and my son looked at the window and said "good mommy you didn't hit it."
If whoever had hit that little puppy would have stop that puppy may not have died. I just don't understand. My son told me after I told him that the puppy didn't make it that some people are just mean and cruel people and they should have stopped.
