I was just watching 9news... A handicapped man in a wheelchair had a golden retriever service dog. The man was getting into an elevator at an RTD station and the doors close on the dogs leash! The man couldn't get the door open and the dog was "injured badly".
No one from RTD knew if the were "allowed" to take the dog to the vet. The man waited several hours for RTD Accesoride to show up, they didn't. The man took the dog home on his lap. Accessoride FINALLY showed up and took the dog to the vet. The dog was so hurt, he had to be put down!!
How sad, no one could help this poor dog and he had to suffer for so many hours. His poor owner is very upset, too. What a sad, sad story :cry:

Oh, man, that's just horrible! Breaks my heart and makes me very angry at the same time. This needs to be fixed so it never happens again, to the dog OR the owner! :rant:

No, no, NO! This man needs to talk to legal aid, and some animal groups need to make a big public deal out of this.

I imagine there are several animal rights groups on this, and maybe some disabilities groups on behalf of the owner.

Unthinkable accidents happen, we just need to be sure they don't happen again. :)

We used to see the guy and his dog all the time down in Denver. When it happened, he came into the restaurant where we always go, and told the story. He had everyone crying at the bar. We bought his dinner that night, but still felt so helpless!
