    Clemmy (dog) was buried at the Red Mile. Her owner loved her dearly and she is devastated. Ricky is still touch and go but we pray for the best.

    I hope the man recovers from his injury. and my sympathy goes to him if it was his dog/ Dogs are to some of us/ a best friend/ I am sorry the dog died -?? some drivers well go to fast but it was accident and hopefully it died quickly not left by road like many to suffer a long time.

    awwww.... this is sad. I'm sad for the man, but he made the choice of not using the cross I'm even more sad for the dog who had no choice.
