Dog Back To Life Before Buried

Dog Back To Life Before Buried, A Washington family received an early Christmas surprise, that some are calling a miracle, when their dog, who was hit by a car and thought to be dead, made a remarkable recovery after being placed under a wheelbarrow to await a morning burial.
When Paul McKinlay saw their family pet, an 8-month-old Yorkshire Terrier-Shih Tzu mix, he was sure it had not survived its injuries. Its eyes were fixed, it was bleeding and was not breathing or showing any signs of life. They weren’t sure how to break the bad news to their grandchildren that the much-loved dog Scamp had gone to heaven.
McKinlay wrapped Scamp in a blanket and placed the puppy under a wheelbarrow to keep other animals away from the dog’s battered body overnight. He planned to bury him in the morning, reports The Olympian.
Reta McKinlay told news media the grandchildren cried when they were told Scamp was gone. “It was real sad to watch them crying over their dog. They drew pictures of him and talked about how much they would miss him. We were trying not to cry.”
But the next day when Paul went to retrieve the dog for the morning burial he was met with a surprise. Scamp was sitting upright under the wheelbarrow, and was very much alive.
They rushed the pup to the Olympia Pet Emergency hospital where veterinarians say the cold temperature probably kept him alive.
He had head trauma to the left side of his face, broken teeth and severe bruising. He was stabilized, given fluids by IV, and oxygen. He was then transferred to another veterinary hospital. Overnight the dog’s prognosis was upgraded and he was able to eat.
When he was ready to be discharged the McKinlay’s called the kids to let them know the dog had lived. The family said the dog’s ears perked up when he heard the excited children on the cellphone, that’s when they knew he would be okay. “We just told them miracles happen, and maybe we were wrong and maybe because everyone was sad and praying, maybe God decided to let him live,” Reta McKinlay said.
