A doggone happy ending for Lab siblings

Dog's mother and a pup were killed by car; another sibling died after drinking poison.

This dog tale started on an ominous and tragic note.

A Huron County Humane Society (HCHS) investigator left a warning to the owner of a mother dog and her pups at the sight of a report of neglect: The location was a dangerous one for the dogs; it was near a major road, and the investigator offered to take the dogs to the society's shelter.

The owner refused, but tragically realized the mistake the next day: The mother dog and one of her pups wandered onto the road, were struck and killed by a vehicle. Another pup apparently drank some poison while trying to quench its thirst. It suffered a seizure and died.

That left two remaining pups. And for them, it was a warm and fuzzy ending often seen in movies during this most wonderful time of the year.

It's a doggone good ending for them two pup's ..... good story, the ending anyway


Is there charges against the owner for neglect or dog at large? anything? or are they just going to get another animal to abuse and then let get killed or die or just plain suffer?

maybe if they would post the name and address of the offending and cruel dog owner, people could be on the look out and as soon as they see a dog in traffic, instead of thinking that "I bet they don't know the dog is in the street" they will immediately call the dog warden and take the dogs to a safe place where they will be well cared for instead of neglected to the point that they are hit by cars and killed
