I started my internship at Lane County Animal Services yesterday. They are over flowing by the way. Several things I noted that I never knew before. Maybe my eyes were just closed for a while. Not anymore.
At the end of my shift, on my very first day, I held a beautiful black lab that had apparently been hit by a car, while she was humanely euthanized. She was a very sweet, gentle girl. I think she was very well taken care of at one time, but she looked like she had been suffering in the field where she was found, for about a week. She was severely dehydrated and obviously had not eaten for days. Her back was broken. I hope that the person who hit her didn't know they had. And if they did, and left her to die . . .well, I wish the same on you.
