November 19, 2008: Lucky Dog

Quote:
The motorist, Marco Menozzi, didn't even stop when he mowed down the one-year-old pooch while doing 70mph on a side road in Cozze, southern Italy.

But he hit the dog so hard he was embedded in the grill under the bonnet of the Peugeot 207 and managed to cling on until the car eventually stopped.

Vets have treated the stray for a broken leg and bruising and he's now in a police pound looking for new owner.

"He's a very lucky boy. He was saved because he was hit so hard. Any softer and he would have bounced off the car and been crushed under the wheels," said a police spokesman.


A very lucky dog, I hope he finds a good home... close enough to Marco Menozzi that he can go over and bite the bastard.

Ok, but how did they get him OUT?

And yeah, I'd go and bite the sod who failed to stop after hitting an animal. Chomp chomp.

I'm surprised the Peugeot didn't die, or at least get a broken leg.

What an arsehole. I just can't believe people don't stop when they hit animals, especially domestic ones.

I heard about this on the radio yesterday morning. I had a completely different picture in my head when they said the dog was "embedded in the grill".

1) Resume the 70 mph speed;
2) Stomp on the brake pedal.

Oh blimey yes - very popular car in this country. I don't think they make them big enough for Americans is all. I've owned 2 Peugeot 205s myself.

I had the same reaction when my ex husband stayed up to watch the infamous Tyson/ Holyfield fight with a group of friends. When he came to bed and responded to my sleepy question with the answer, "Tyson bit Holyfield's ear off" I lay awake for ages, with visions of a baying crowd approving, while Tyson ran around the ring, shaking the large piece of grisly tissue in his teeth like a dog. It was such a relief to see what really happened.

Words + imagination = powerful images.

PS - welcome Badcat. Hang on, you're not Diz are you? I left my laptop in London unattended...

I don't know what a "Diz" is, so I would presume I'm not one then...

But seriously, folks... let's give the l'il darlings some credit here. Before you get the chance to cue the laser display and the soundtrack music (Alan Parsons Project is good for this, though Wagner is also suitable) and actually, as in the words of the late great Frank Zappa, whip it out, they've already pretty much made the decision vis a vis alpha to omega, ipso facto corpus delectible. Unless you dared the tatoo artist to put it there anyway (seems to be impossible), they probably aren't going to jump up and scream, "Wooga! Uncircumsied Penis! Leper Outcast Unclean!" Mind you, if they do, I want their phone number; if nothing else, it would make for a hell of a stage show.
