well i alerted mom to an emergency today and she took action!!
nixon and i were looking out the open window today (its so pretty and sunny here today!) and we saw two dogs running through our yard. nixon can sit in the window while i have to sit on the back of the sofa, sometimes i wish i could jump like nixon! well anyways nixon started meowing and meowing and i started barking and barking! mom thought maybe it was the ups man bringing her a package she is expecting but no it was two dogs! well she looked out the window and saw one skinny black lab and one shaggy golden retriever. the golden was not putting pressure on one of his back legs and was hopping around. it didn't look normal. so she ran to get a treat...from MY treat jar no less! and then grabbed her cellphone and MY leash! she ran outside and whistled for the dogs and they came running to her. they were all wet and dirty and the golden still wasn't putting weight its back leg. just then mom saw a lady walking down the street and mom asked her to help her hold the dog while she looked at its collar. so mom called the number on the collar and gave them MY treat and put MY leash on the golden. a lady answered the phone and said she had been driving around looking for her dogs for about 30 minutes. she said another lady had corralled them in her backyard but they escaped. so its a good thing my mom used a leash. well the walking lady went into her house to get another leash for the black dog and mom and the walking lady walked the dogs to the corner of the street to meet the dog's mom. when the dog's mom showed up she didn't seem really worried about her dog's leg. but she was happy to see them, she said they get out all the time and they have both been hit by cars before! it broke mom's heart. the dog's had walked about a mile and were very dirty and wet. mom wanted to ask if she was going to take the dog to the vet, cause she got the impression she might not, but she didn't ask. pray that this dog is ok and gets to see a vet. it wasn't bleeding, but it was definately hurt. i know that if my mom had found me like that she would have immediately taken me to the vet! she also would have made sure i had a secure yard. some people don't love us dogs like they should. sad.
