Honestly, this is one of those things I always think about when the kids travel with us. They have their own comfortable back seat, restraints, and we’re always ensuring they’re OK. When we’re moving at any real speed, windows are up and i will NEVER allow Magnus or Bailey to hang their head out of an open window. The horror stories of digs being injured by flying debris are just too frightening. Hey, it’s one less thing to worry about and it keeps them safe.
I read this story and had to wonder how often it happens to people. Just a casual drive, an accident you could not prevent, and your precious pup is seriously injured or even wanders away. In this case, their pet Roo was actually ejected from the vehicle! A francit post-crash search no he was nowhere to be found. Add emergency room visits, the clamor of paramedics trying to save human life, and all of a sudden, you find yourself wondering where that boy went, was he injured, how do we find him, so many things get to work.
What started as a terrible tale turned into a positive. but not without a lot of concern and I’ll wager panicked moments. Hell, when Magnus wandered away from the house we were living in when he was only a couple of years old because I left THREE doors open for him to walk out, I was a madman scouring the neighborhood. Luckily, he was about 4 houses down just at the lakeside watching ducks. You better believe there hasn’t been an open door at ANY time since then! But I will admit, he’s a perfect gentleman now who just sits and waits for Daddy.
Now, the story of Roo, and a reason to smile. Oh, and what he was doing hen they found hm?
