    CBS, Apparently first responders left the dog behind which is terrible. People are trying to catch it to no avail. It’s too cold for it to be out overnight. Any way you can spread the word about this?

    The dog is fine and was not leaving her Papa. Locals who arrived on the scene could not catch the sweet little companion until family arrived, and instead of spending the night in the pound, she got to be by her dad’s side well taken care of…Fate of man’s best friend was to be there to the end.
    Love to this man and his sweet pup. He was amazing and caring and giving beyond this world.
