For most animal lovers, seeing a deceased animal lying on the side of the road is heartbreaking. Do they have a family out there that is missing them? Are they a stray that never knew love? Did they suffer during their last moments?
Just yesterday, as one of Alaqua Animal Refuge's employees was traveling down a rural road, these thoughts entered her head as she passed the body of a dog wedged between the road and a ditch. She glanced at it as she passed, yet as she continued down the road she felt that she needed to go back. As she turned around and got out of her car, the site brought her to tears. This creature was on it's side and was truly a bag of bones. As she approached, the unbelievable happened - the dog opened its eyes and looked up at her. As she got closer, the head slowly lifted and the tail began to thump. The frail little dog struggled to stand and began to move towards the car. He knew that despite all odds, someone had come for him.
