Today as I was driving home from work I saw a dog sticking it’s head out of the window just enjoying the heck out of its life. I was smiling to myself as it reminded me to be like that dog and enjoy the little things.
I noticed the bumper sticker on the vehicle and it was said TRUMP. Now I’m a democrat, I don’t generally talk about politics much because to each their own, but I feel that as an animal lover it doesn’t matter who you’re going to vote for, or who you worship (or don’t), if you’re straight, gay, bi, transgender or whatever.
It’s our love for animals that unites us.
It’s our desire to help those that are in need that can’t help themselves.
And it’s incidents like the one that happened just recently that sickens me.. a woman threw a dog from a moving van, the dog named Joe unfortunately passed away.
How can someone throw a living sentient being out a moving van like it’s nothing but trash??
I hope they find her. I hope they give her a big huge penalty but as an animal lover I’m more upset that Joe didn’t make it, I’m somewhat comforted by the fact that he knew love in his last few days and hours.
He knew what it was like to be loved, have kind words, food, water and kind people who wanted him to pull through.
So I want you all to hug and kiss your pet, give them an extra treat, blanket or take them out for a stroll.
Be glad that you have them in your life and they are getting the love that poor Joe the dog did not.
Dog Thrown from minivan Dies
NEW PORT RICHEY, FL (WFLA) — Joe, the dog thrown from a moving minivan in New Port Richey, died during surgery on Monday.
The team at San Francis Veterinary Hospital in Spring Hill said “Joe” did not survive a surgery to fix his diaphragm.
“We would like to thank the community for the outpouring of support we have seen over this past weekend. Heaven has gained another angel,” the hospital said in a statement.
When Joe was thrown from the minivan, his organs were pushed into his abdominal cavity, and his diaphragm and pelvis broke.
Deputies are still searching for the suspect who allegedly threw Joe from the moving van.
The incident happened at the intersection of Orchid Lake Road and Floral View Way early Friday morning. The woman driving a white or grey minivan tossed the mixed-breed dog out of the vehicle.
The suspect is described as a large, heavy set female. She is approximately 45 years old, with blonde hair pulled back into a ponytail. She was wearing glasses.
