good on the para`s

 

It didnt sound urgent for them to have to walk for so far and so long not to bothered about the dog, it could of be left on its own for a long time..

 

I would of asked to take care or watch over it or something.

 

I would of been as concerned for the dog in that situation.

As indeed would the patient.  Looking after his/her dog was probably more important to them than their own welfare, so it is important for the well being of the patient that this is attended to.

So, is there a dog alone on a boat near Bridge 133 and Tring railway station? If so, would someone go and have a look and rescue it... I’m in Spain, so not in a position to do anything.

 

Take it to a vets, or a rescue centre, (Dogs Trust), or just take care of it until the owner is sorted?

Really?  I suppose it's a typical British attitude, but I still find it weird.

Especially as there seems to be more criticism of the rescuer for leaving the dog behind (which we don't even know that they did) that pleasure that someone actually could be arsed to help someone ill enough to warrant an ambulance.

I find it incomprehensible that some of my friends have nearly bankrupted themselves paying thousands of pounds for an operation on a dog's leg, and the same again for rehab, when the animal appeared to be suffering no discomfort and was old enough to only have a year or two to live anyway.

The excellent BBC documentary 'Ambulance' featured a segment where a narrowboat ferried paramedics and a patient along a stretch of the canal which looked to be near Shirley lift bridge on the north Stratford! There must be a lot of places where a boat is the only option for access!

Not only access  must be considered  but being able to work within the cabin space of a NB is very challenging, I know first hand because I nearly lost Chris about 3 months back and am still in awe of the paras who worked tirelessly to stabilise Chris and then manage to get her off the boat and into the ambulance and off to A&E

You have obviously never had a dog, and have no idea whatsoever how much people care for them.

 

You are quite right when you say the we don’t know that there is a dog left alone on the boat... and we don’t know that there isn’t. It would be no big deal for someone nearby to go and check.

 

You, it seems, have no problem whatsoever, if it has been left on the boat, to die of starvation, having no idea where it’s best friend has gone, and why. It is almost certainly the case that, if this were to happen, the boatowner would be devastated.

 

As I say - no big deal for someone to go and check. It doesn’t have to be you.

To some people a dog is disposable to others indespensible.

 

It's the way of things, but it's why so many end up in rescue centres. I doubt the guy being whisked off for treatment had much time to think about his dogs welfare but it's also possible the paramedics will have been in contact with a rescue centre.

 

I seriously doubt it will be the first time they will have encountered that scenario, all be it perhaps not on a boat. I bet they will be 're united when the guy recovers.

Thank you for the feedback and your very helpful actions.  Try not to visit a pub with 24 hr opening just in case you are needed again. Lol.

Glad to hear that the dog is being looked after, and that Dave’s situation, whilst obviously serious, does not sound life threatening. I hope he is reunited with his dog soon :)
