Just been at the vets when an emergency was bought in, heart sinks when you recognise the dog being carried in, even if you don't personally know the owners as I didn't. Dog had been on a flexi lead and just ran into road and was hit by a van. The kind driver of the car behind stopped to take the dog and owners to the vets. Lady owner was severely traumatised, just stood there not knowing what to do or where to go as they whisked her little dog away. Couldn't leave her so had to go and hold her and she burst into tears, poor thing, naturally I started crying too. I only know her from sight up the park, never really stopped to chat, but always had her dog on a flexi lead and sort of used to follow it around the park - weird sight, owner trotting behind her little dog going wherever he went or lead her. As I paid for my dogs treatment, I asked the receptionist if it was [sad face or happy face] and she shook her head. Really upset at that one ... poor owners. The kind lady who bought them to the vets in her car was also in shock too, traumatic for all.
