My friend had a puppy... Her Mom hated the puppy... So there were a couple times when she brought the puppy to work with her and left her in the car...I would call my Mom to come get the puppy so she could play at our house with our dogs for the day. Her name was Nala. She was a black pitbull. Very cute. Today her Mom calls her at work and tells her that Nala had been hit by a car. Her Mom knew Nala couldn't be out without a leash. She let her out anyway. I think it was intentional. It's just terrible. I know she wasn't my dog, but I threw up because I couldn't understand how someone could be so cruel. She called my friend at work and told her she had to come clean up the mess. How terrible is that!?! Some people! Luckily her boyfriend came to get her and he hugged her in the parking lot for a good half hour before they left. There was nothing she could do...I understand feeling that powerless.
