Letter: Be aware of your pet ‘as you would a child’

Dear Editor,

To the owner of the little beige-taupe pit bull that flew out of your black pickup truck on Sunday, May 29, in front of the Home Depot (66th Avenue and 200th Street, I am the person who honked, stopped, and told you where the 24-hour emergency vet was).

I am not the person who swore and yelled at you for not having your dog secured (yet, you fired back at me, yelling and swearing).

Just so you know.

It was obvious your poor dog had a broken leg and who knows what other injuries, and I sure hope it’s going to be alright.

I will never forget this, from witnessing your dog flying out of your truck, landing hard on the pavement, hobbling to the grass, to the hurt scared look on its face, with all the commotion going on.

Thank goodness there was a police officer right behind you to stop traffic.

Let this be a reminder to anyone reading this, who owns a pet: Yes… they need to be secured in your vehicle while driving, watch your speed (especially going around corners), and always be aware of them – as you would a child.

Hope all ends well for your dog.

L.S. Tailleur, Langley
