A couple of days ago, one of our dogs Choco escaped from our house and later that night my dad found him lying on the side of a busy street next to where we live. He got hit by a car. Luckily he was still breathing and we were all hoping that it would just be broken bones or even something where he would be able function with one of those doggy wheelchairs.
Unfortunately that wasn't the case. As my dad and brother went to take Choco to the vet, my mom and I went to do some last minute Christmas errands. When we go home, we got the bad news. The vet said his injuries were so severe that he need to be put to sleep. The bottom part of him was paralyzed and something he would probably never recover from.
