Dog with Arrow

We have an update on the dog mentioned in today's earlier post. We are all relieved to learn that in the confusion of the moment Jan misunderstood. All day we have had horrible visions of an arrow sticking out of this poor dog's eye. How she got eye out of shoulder is beyond us -- and her.

After several hours and a number of phone calls, Jan went to the vet's office to take photographs of the dog for -- and hopefully for the local newspapers. What she found is a sweet, scared, bony, Yellow Labrador Retriever mix with ice blue eyes.

To save time on updating you, this is what she'll post on UpsonPets:

The Upson Humane Society received a call from Animal Control Officer Smart Web Wednesday morning regarding a yellow Labrador Retriever mix with an arrow in its shoulder. "Despite the arrow sticking out, the dog is friendly, " Web stated. Then he asked if the Humane Society would be willing to help. The dog was taken to the Thomaston Animal Hospital for evaluation and will undergo surgery Thursday morning to remove the arrow. Anyone who recognizes this dog or knows who shot it, please contact the animal shelter at 706-647-5586. He will be available for adoption at the shelter after he recovers from surgery. Any donations toward veterinary expenses should be sent to .........

You can click on the photos to enlarge a little, but not much. Jan says we have to be tactful.

We don't have any other details at the moment. As AC said, it could be someone decided to use the dog for target practice or someone took the dog out there to kill it or ..... We hope someone saw something and reports it.

We received the Proximidade award again, this time from Sunny's Mommy. Thank you so much!

To lighten the moment, a friend sent this---

If you're like us, you're wondering what planet the writer is from.

Scroll down for the earlier post and the bird dancing video.

    Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

  3. I about laughed up a lung reading that thing about hunters... we're doomed as a society.

    Hey, if you want me to post the poor arrow pup and try to get the shelter some donations, email me at:

  4. We're sending Sibe Vibes to that poor pup. He's gorgeous....Mom likes his bewootiful eyes. As for that clipping - ummmm - alrighty then!

  5. We have a lot of ducks at one of the lakes in the city and one year this duck walked around with an arrow through its neck for several days before AC could find it.

    It made a full recovery and lived to quack about it.

  6. Yet another sign the end is near....

    Tank woo fur the pupdate!

    What beaWOOtiful eyes!

    Paws khrossed fur all of us!


  7. It's so hard to believe someone could be so heartless. We are praying for that beautiful dog to recover soon and the person who was so cruel, get what's coming to them.

    Loads of HUGS& prayers

  8. Congratulations on your awards.

    We laughed at your highlighted newspaper letter... Now that's just sad or funny or both...

  9. That is SO terrible about the poor woofie bein shot! We hope the Bein who done it is found an punished.

    But we also hafta add that the noospaper thing about meat bein made in stores is funny. Beins are SO strange sometimes.

  10. We hope that poor dog makes a full recovery and that the person who did it is found and punished.
    We laughed at the newspaper article. What a dimwit!

  11. Apparently the writer doesn't have a clue where the meat at the store comes from. We don't have a problem with hunting as long as you actually eat what you killed. We thinks it is disgraceful when they takes the head for a trophey and leave the meat to rot.

    We are glad the doggie is doing OK. We hopes it finds a wonderful forever home. ~S,S,C & F

  12. grrrrrrr

    i'm glad the dog has been rescued and will have a chance at a good life with humans who are not evil...

  13. It is so sad that someone would use a dog for a target. Hopefully, your article will help them find the culprit and help the dog find a new home. He deserves better.

  14. Eye... shoulder... either way this dog has been seriously hurt. I sincerely hope the person who did this is found and prosecuted. There is no excuse for animal cruelty.

  15. OMG...that is shocking... that dog is so lucky to have been rescued by good people. Hope that it finds a new home and whomever is responsible is apprehended!

  16. Hope the woofie finds a new home.

    Our humans laughed and laughed over the news paper clipping.

  17. We hope the dog will come through surgery ok. What a terrible thing!
    Loved the bird dancing video. I was bopping right along with the bird!

  18. Hope the dog will recover completely.
    Idiot people need to be caught and put away.
