Our dog dakota was hit by a car tuesday night After 3.5 hours of surgery and a night for observation she is finally home! Her upper left femur was broken in 3 places, so she is an additional plate, screws, pins and wires. It is good to see her, i know i will sleep much better tonight! I think the worst part of this is she wasnt even in the road! She was in the driveway and either the guy wasnt paying attention and drifted or he was trying to hit her (from the top of the hill she would have looked like a coyote) and when he got close realized it was a dog and hit the brakes. I guess i doesnt matter what the circumstance was, she is home, has her leg and no other serious injuries.
