Last night, The Romanian and I were on our way to Mischief and saw a dog in the median of the street. It looked confused and was just standing there. We circled around and stopped with our flashers on next to the dog. He was injured - bleeding leg that looked like it could have been broken. We couldn't get him - he was about to run into traffic, so we tried to get traffic to slow down so that he could cross the busy road.
A police cruiser passed us, then put his flashers on and came back around us. We explained that the dog was injured and if he gets into traffic, he might cause an accident.
Okay, now the officers were really really nice guys. But what he asked me kinda floored me, "Did you hit him? Did he hurt your car?" What? I can't imagine hearing that somewhere else. Did the dog hurt my car???
So they stopped traffic and the dog got across the road. It was more to help US than the dog, however.
If you live in the area, it was Salmiya at the corner of Harun Al-Rashid and Baghdad Street in front of Shaab Park. He wandered off into the big dirt lot. We tried to catch him, but we couldn't. He looks like an adolescent Shepherd mix ; maybe 8 months old.
I sent a message to K'sPATH and I hope they were able to send someone to catch him/help him. You try to help save them all, but sometimes you just can't. We both felt like crap driving away. He looked so scared and hurt and I just wanted to throw a blanket on him and hug him and tell him it was going to be okay.
