Saving a Dog, Saving Ourselves

BlogHer Spotlight

A woman teams up with another roadside stranger, a young girl, to rescue an injured dog, and learns a crucial lesson in the process, namely, that you may not be able to save every being that needs help but you must be prepared to try:

"The young girl finally saw the poor dog. He was lying on his back in a muddy, wet, weed-filled ditch. I didn't know how to get to him. I had been in a few situations like this before with injured animals. That seems to happen when you're an animal lover. I was afraid the dog would bite or hurt us in the process of trying to help him. But, the young girl was adamant that we couldn't leave him. I told her that if I could get him in my car, we would take him to the Emergency Vets in a nearby town. But how in the world would we get him in the car?"
