What would you have done?

Ok - here's the scenario:

We are driving home from walmart this evening and as we are going up the hill past Hollywood video we are all chit-chatting about the movies we'd like to rent next. When all of the sudden ---- This car in front of us runs over a little dog's leg!

The poor little dog, he was screaming, I tell you.

I saw the WHOLE thing, and it was terrible :(

It was a total accident. The little doggie ran right in front of them, and there was no way they could have stopped.

But anyhow, Kevin wouldn't stop, so I called 911.

And he didn't want me to call 911 for a dog, but the 911 lady was very nice and said I called the right place :)

I told her where it was approximately and what I had seen and she asked me my name and phone number, and asked what color the car was and the dog was.

I told her it was a red car, and explained to her that it was a total accident, and that they had pulled over, but I am sure they could use some help. She reassured me that they would send someone over right away and that I had done right :)

But Kevin was still shaking his head at me, I could tell! haha

And my brother thought I was silly for calling 911 about a dog.

But hey, at might have caused a traffic problem, and besides a police officer could knock on people's doors more easily to find out who the dog's owners were.


Would you have called 911?

Would you have stopped?

I am interested to know.


  1. I totally would have called. You have great instincts!

    Did you ever find out if the dog was okay?

  2. Yes absolutely would of called. If that had been my dog, I would want someone to do the same.

  3. I would have stopped and taken the dog to the vet. I try not to call 911 as much as I possibly can.

  4. But my husband "probably would have", he says. And he's the most logical, even keel person I know. So there.

  5. I think you did the right thing. I wouldn't have thought to call 911, but I probably would have stopped and picked up the little dog to take it to get some help.

  6. No I have no idea how to find out about it. :(

  7. I would have called and stopped to see what I could do, I hate seeing an animal hurt.......ya did good!
