New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 28, 2000, New Braunfels, Texas Friday January 28 2000 HKRALDZBITUNG Page 7A AROUND TOWN Leash isnt enough to keep dogs safe in back of trucks DEAR ABBY DEAR ABBY I just finished reading the letter about the husky dog who jumped from the back of a pickup truck into traffic Here is our story We were camping Memorial Day weekend three years ago Our dogs were tied up on short leashes in the back of our pickup truck One of them climbed onto our cooler next to the side of the truck and fell out The collar slipped over her head and she went under the wheel of the truck When we got to her she was still alive but barely We drove 20 miles to the police station in Payson Ariz They called a vet at his home and gave us directions to his office That wonderful man tried valiantly to save her but couldnt Her death still haunts us Needless to say none of our dogs ride in the back of our truck anymore I am now a volunteer for the Arizona Humane Society Please Abby tell your readers to treat their pets as they would want to be treated Pets are our friends KAREN IN TEMPE ARIZ DEAR KAREN Im printing your letter in the hope that the tragedy which befell your dog will discourage other dog own ers from transporting their pets in the back of pickup trucks Read on DEAR ABBY Im responding to theietterfegardihg people who allow their dogs to ride unprotect ed in the back of their pickups I believe in divine justice When these people go before their maker on Judgment Day they will be sentenced to ride aimless ly in the back of a flatbed truck over bumpy back roads wonder ing when the devil at the wheel will make his next sharp turn Remember each of us will be judged by how we treated the least of Gods creatures ALLEN IN EMORY TEXAS DEAR ALLEN If common sense doesnt rule then perhaps your letter will scare careless or thoughtless pet owners into doing the right thing keeping their dogs safely inside the cab of their trucks and out of harms way Read on DEAR ABBY I have another story to add to the one about the dog that nearly didnt survive a ride in the back of a pickup We have two sons one of whom owns a pickup truck One Saturday night a few months ago they were headed downtown Our oldest son jumped in the back of the truck while his brother and their buddy sat in the cab His brother had to swerve to avoid an accident and our son in the back flew out of the pickup at 65 mph on the highway Every time I think of that night and what could have happened I am grateful to God My son sur vived with only minor fractures and lots of road burn He is now back to work and is one lucky young man Our sons learned a hard lesson but animals do not have a choice whether or not to ride in the back of the truck Abby please stress to your readers to THINK before they allow riders human or animals in the back of their trucks They may not be as fortunate as we were GRATEFUL MOM IN TEXAS To order What Every Teen Should Know

made to reach all Doing away with but a few of the Texas Rangers was indeed a wise move and a big saving to the already overburdened taxpayers of the state It may be all right to keep a few stationed along the border but what good did it do to send a bunch of them to San Antonio a few months since It was little more than an outrage and an insult to the lawabiding people of the town The judge dismissing these rangers declared that the officers of the different counties could protect the people without interference on the part of men shipped in from other counties Our sheriff and his deputies are not asking outside help to enforce the laws and sher iffs of other counties are able to do just what our sheriff and his deputies are doing Save this ranger expense to the people who pay
