jose gets hit by a car
posted Tuesday, December 09 2008
it's 12:40 am and i just got dropped of from a cab from the emergency animal hospital. a few hours earlier, me and jose went to a warehouse across the street from us to east 21st and superior. we went to drop of our recycling in a dumpster behind the daffy dan's building. on our way back across the street, an suv stone cold ran the light and drove right over jose. i freaked, looked at jose, he looked like he was dead, i then took off after the car. the suv did a u-turn and head for me so i pulled the chain out of my pocket and smashed out the side widow when it made it;s pass. i then ran back to jose in the middle of the street. his eyes where open, but he wasn't breathing. i closed his eyelids thinking he was dead. just then he started a gargling breathing. at that point a woman who works for the cleveland plain dealer (clevelands daily paper which is a block away) stop and said she saw it all, got the guys plates and would drive me to the animal hospital. i completely lost all her information, name etc, but i have to say, she's one of the greatest people in the world. had she not stopped to pick us up, we would have never made it all the way out to the brook park animal hospital.
i really thought jose was going to die because of the blood coming out of his nose and his gurgling breath. after his check up, it appears he got a concussion and a bloody nose. the suv clearance under the car was high enough to not kill a little dog...this time.
i pick him up in the morning
