our family dog,daisey rides on the back of the truck all the time. tonight she fell off of the flatbed and broke her leg in two places.
of course we made a flying trip to the vets!
the dog is part of the family.
the bone broke thru the skin.the vet said she could pin it at best, at worst amputate.
whatever happens we can deal with son was doing real well with the problem,better than me.
sorry to whine,it's just that i never had a dog i really cared for like this one.
old daisey is going to surgery tomorrow so i will be looking in on her in the morning.
thanks for listening........barry

It usually takes 2 mistakes to cause an accident.
I was building a house and decided to take the weekend off. Only problem - our dog Dolly had 3 nursing pups and i couldn't take them along. So i left a big pan of water, bunch of table scraps and bag of food in the carport shade for them, the house was open and they had free reign so how much trouble could they get into? Well when the pups bounced out to meet me when i got back, everything seemed okay but i didn't see Dolly. After awhile i went looking, and here she was scratching the door, stuck in a bedroom. I had gotten a door hung and something had slid across it and propped it shut. On top of that, she'd been chewing a bone and gotten it lodged between her jaws to prop them open. I mean, i had to get side-cutters to cut the bone out! She was okay but awful thirsty & her jaw healed alright. Luckily no varmints moved in, and the pups had sure got weaned in a hurry. So be careful with those critters. You don't know how much you like them til they get hurt.

It is very important to tie your dog into the back of a truck short enought so no part of the dog can get over the side. You never know when you may have to hit your brakes hard and cause the dog to go over the side. I hope all turns out for the dog at the Vets. Mark H.

Our family golden retreiver is pretty much one of us too, I can imagine how you would feel.
These days the vets can do wonders in surgery. I'd be willing to bet the leg gets mended and he's back his ole' self again, just hang is there and try to keep him off that leg.

Hey Pink Panther, know what ya mean about them being family. I growed up closer to the dogs than the other kids. My little rescue from the pound rides in the truck with me all the time, I have a sliding back window, she goes back and forth from the bed to the cab as she wishes. She's not jumped or fell out yet thou. Hope everthing turns out ok for you guys, and your dog.

What a terrible accident. One would not figure such damage by falling out of a truck. I will pray for your dog.
