It's a race against time, and injury for the dog, only a year old.
On Tuesday, Hope was thrown from a moving vehicle and then immediately hit by an on-coming car.
But the trauma team at the Louisville Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Services is making efforts to keep her alive.
Hope is suffering from fractures in her pelvis, femur, and one in her spine, but doctors are still hoping for the best.
"It's an emotional case for everybody. It's difficult to believe that someone would do that. Ah, we don't work any harder on this case than we do on any others, but it's difficult not to get emotional about these cases," says Dr. Scott Rizzo.
$12,000 is needed to help cover Hope's medical bills. Courtesy of WKBO news online.

Surfing Dogs

Surfin Dogs Catch a Wave in Huntington Beach, CA

Two words: Surf dogs. Two additional words: Huntington Beach.
Yup, it was that time again this weekend -- time for athletic dogs with a charitable bent to hop on their surfboards to raise money for animal-related organizations.
The second annual Surf City Surf Dog competition was held Sunday at the Huntington Dog Beach in Orange County, and charities including Chase Away K9 Cancer, Coastal German Shepherd Rescue and the Orange County Humane Society received a portion of entry fees.
Participating dogs were divided into groups according to their weight and experience level, and humans were on hand to help them along and ensure their safety. The event also featured a costume contest and a fundraising walk, and it raised about $5,000 for its charity partners, organizers told ESPN2. About 1,000 spectators turned out to see the surf dogs in action.
Surf City Surf Dog caught the attention of media outlets from all over the world, but our favorite headline so far has to be's "Surfing Dog Competition Ruins Non-Surfing Dogs Forever." See more photos and video from the event after the jump!--Courtesy of L.A. Times

Coconut Oil for dogs and cats

The health and nutritional benefits that can be derived from consuming coconut oil have been recognized in many parts of the world for centuries. Virgin Coconut Oil is the richest natural source of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs).

Nationally known holistic vet, Dr. Becker discusses the aging brain and mental decline in dogs. She gives top tips for keeping dogs sharp and nourishing the brain. One of her top tips: "Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) have been shown to improve brain energy metabolism and decrease the amyloid protein buildup that results in brain lesions in older dogs. COCONUT OIL is a rich source of MCTs. I recommend 1/4 teaspoon for every 10 pounds of body weight twice daily for basic MCT support."

CocoTherapy Virgin Organic Coconut Oil can be found at

Dog saves boy from bee attack

KENT, Ohio -- A hero dog is getting some well-deserved credit for saving her best friend after a swarm of bees attacked on Sunday."I had an allergic reaction, because I didn't know I was allergic to bees," said Richie Bragg, 9.Richie was in his yard when he spotted the bees and couldn't escape. He was stung four times on his foot. It could have worse, but his 18-week-old dog "Pinky" managed to distract the bees, who diverted their attention to the Boxer. "They just got onto Pinky and a whole bunch of bees followed her," said Richie.

Richie made it inside and Pinky also ran for the house, but the bees stayed with the dog. "She was yelping when she got to the door," said Richie. He has a blood condition that affects how his blood clots and his parents say he faced a possible medical emergency if the bees weren't distracted by the family pet.Richie's mom rushed Pinky to the Stow Kent Animal Hospital, where Dr. Jaime Marietti treated the pup who was stung more than 40 times. "You couldn't either of her eyes, she was swollen completely," said Dr. Marietti. "Her ears were actually swollen and sticking straight out because they were so swollen."Dr. Marietti said they see an increase in bee sting cases during the summer, but Pinky's case was potentially serious. "Boxers, especially, tend to be a little bit more allergic to bees, however she had an anaphylactic reaction," said Dr. Marietti. "We were trying to get her through this, she never even looked at us, she never lifted her head up, she didn't pay attention to anything."Pinky is doing better and so is Richie, who credits the dog with coming to his rescue. "Pinky, you really saved my life!"
