She sure is one lucky dog!!! I guess animals have guardian angels too!
I was backing our van out of our gravel driveway one afternoon,
& one of the rear tires went up over a pretty big stone.
So big that the tire 'plunked' back down as it went over it.
I stopped & thought, 'We don't have any big stones in the driveway???!!!
As I put the car in park & went to get out & look,
I saw one of our cats run across the yard & go under the lilac bush!
Oooh, no!!! But wait a minute, she was running really well & fast!!!
I ran over & looked. She was panting, but not crying.
Checked her over for broken bones, cuts, bleeding....nothing!
I had to leave to get one of the kids from school.
Was afraid what I might find when I got back!
But she was fine....lived a few more years!
Apparently she hadn't used up all her lives yet!!!
My aunt took her St Bernard, (still a pup), to get fixed.
Brought her home, took her into the house.
Had to go somewhere else, came out of the house,
got back in the car, backed up & ran over something!
She didn't know the kids had let the dog out & she was under the car in the shade!
My poor Aunt just about lost it! Especially when she saw the dog's stitches were ripped out!!!
She quick took her back to the vet. Other than needing her stitches replaced, she was fine.
The vet said maybe she just ran over the edge of her stomach.
If that's the case, how did she miss her legs???!!!
But for all the close call stories, I'm sure there are a lot with sad endings too!
So glad yours had a happy ending!!!
