Cool dog story
    #1816288 - 08/15/03 09:44 AM (14 years, 9 days ago)

CORBIN, KY -- A clever canine in Kentucky sought out his own medical
care by limping to a local veterinarian's office after getting hit by a car, according to a Local 6 News report.
Video http://www.local6.com/news/2391476/detail.html#
> >
The 6-year-old dog, Scooby, ran away from his owners when his collar
ring snapped during a recent thunderstorm. As he was running across a road a vehicle hit him, injuring his leg and tail.
> >
Scooby then somehow walked miles to a local animal clinic and was
waiting on the doorstep when employees arrived for work.
> >
"He obviously knew this was the place to get help," Scooby's owner
Shirley Farris said. "There are subdivisions with hundreds and hundreds of houses between me and the vets office, there are three lanes and there is amini mall. How he knew to take himself to the vet, I don't know."
> >
Workers said Scooby followed them inside and walked straight into the
operating room.
> >
His owner called the vet to tell him she'd lost her dog and was amazed
to learn he had taken himself to the right place.
> >
> > Everyone involved is amazed at Scooby's ability not only to find his way through yards and across roads, but with an injury.
> >
"Scientists will like to say it was the barking and the smell," Corbin
Animal Clinic Dr. Gerald Majors said. "But we'd like to think he was
smart enough to be here. He's been here a few times, he is smart, he knew us."
> >
Scooby is expected to recover from his injuries.

"Early man walked away
As modernman took control
There mind's weren't all the same
And to conquer was their goal
So he built his great empire
And he slaughtered his own kind
He died a confused man
And killed himself in his own mind"

maybe i missed it, but how do they know the dog wasn't brought there by the person who hit it or someone who saw it hobbling around?

I guess they just saw it walking up the the place or something, or are maybe assuming that if someone brought him there they'd have brought him inside themself. Hey, you and fungushungry are almost tied for posts.

from the article, it says that he was waiting in the morning.  someone coulda dropped him off, but then this story isn't very inspiring and no one would read it :smile:

Aaagggghhh, true, gottcha, I guess they are assuming that, maybe for some reson best known to themselves that wasn't made clear in the article. One of my guys was waiting for the staff at the Humane Society one morning, as someone tied him to the railing and left him there.

dogs are smart as shit though. if i act like i'm dead when swimming, my dog jumps in, gently grabs my hand, and pulls me to the steps. he did this without being taught!
