New Puppy for Quincy Family

Here’s a story that will tug at your heart. We received an email from a listener whose family recently lost their dog. The dog was hit by a car, but the actions of the car’s driver speak volumes to his character.

Letter from Beverly in Quincy:

I wanted to drop a line, because I need to recognize someone in my community and I don’t even know their name. My husband and I with my children adopted a pug by the name of Dougan from the animal shelter here in Quincy about a year ago or so. He slept at the foot of my bed under my covers, and had become a part of my household. A few days ago, he slipped out the door and was running across the street. He was hit by an SUV traveling down the road who didn’t see him.

The SUV stopped, and asked my daughter (who was playing outside) if she knew who the dog belonged to. When she told them it was ours, they asked her to go get me. They used their own jacket to cover the dog so she didn’t see, and waited for me. When I got there, they apologized, and were visibly distraught.

About 6:30 this evening there was a knock on my door. I answered to find a gentleman I didn’t recognize but he introduced himself as “who had hit the dog”, and asked if he could give my children a puppy. A bit stunned, I asked him if he was sure, and agreed. He came back up with the lady from before, and they were holding a blonde puppy that they said was part lab. My six year old son has Asperger’s, but he gave him a hug he was so excited. So did my three year old.

I don’t know how to thank these people who went way above and beyond to help when it wasn’t even their fault to begin with.
