Saturday, April 10, 2010


As many of you know, we are/were heading North to our home in N.Idaho yesterday. Well,
about 630pm a deer ran out into the highway and hit our car. Did considerable damage, but only some nicks and cuts on Daddy and Mommy and we were okay. Glass, glass everywhere and our car was loaded to the hilt so it was a major mess...Anywhoooo, please send out some prayers for us. Besides frame damage to the car the 3 windows were broken out: windshield, drivers side
window and our back window drivers side. This all happened 20 miles south of Kanab, Utah. So we limped into Kanab and spent the night there. We need to get home to farrr North Idaho and Dad has reservations to fly out of Kalispell, Montana next Sunday (4/18)because of his job. Dad says because the windshield frame is bent it might not be so easy to just get a new one put in. Ugh!! Please, please, please put forth the power of the paw and pray for us to get this mess fixed.

We appreciate you guys and thanks in advance.
Smooches, BabyRocketDog and Hootie

PS- (230pm update)We are now in St. George, Utah because it's a larger city and they have more auto glass places than Kanab. Only problem is they are all closed now so can't even get an estimate. We have to stay at a hotel here for 2 days so someone can look at our car on Monday. Bummer. Sure hope Mommy can find a dog park. Last night after we checked int0 the hotel Hootie did his great escape and made Mommy cry 'cuz she thought he was a goner. Daddy found him so all's well that ends well.

The power of the paw is on it's way! We're sure glad you are all okay, but what a mess it made of your car! Our mom swerved to miss a deer, once, and hit a telephone pole instead. Cut that pole right in half! The insurance company told her she should have hit the deer...then her insurance rates wouldn't have gone up. Stoopid insurance company! We hope everything turns out okay for you!

Mango said...

That is super scary! My goodness. Good thing you were in your crate and your mom and dad are OK. Sending mastiff vibes right away.


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Hootie...if you even think of doin' that again...sheesch...scarin' your family half to death right after by being attacked by a the looks of things you are so very lucky...

All that glass...

You're gonna be findin' glass for months...

Stoopid deer anyway...

Thank dog you're all alright...

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Oh no, y'all could visit Best Friends in Kanab, Ut. Mommy says it is the best place ever for doggies, but doggies can't visit. They don't really have doggie parks there, but you could adopt a new brother or sister. We will say our doggie prayers for you. Oh Hootie, if you want to stay with me for a bit, you can. I think that BRD could stay with the two P's.

Lorenza said...

That sure was scary!
Glad you all are ok!
Hootie! Please... don't do that again!
I guess the deer incident was not enough and you needed more excitment!
Paws crossed for you all!
Take care

smoochie kisses

Ralph said...

My goodness, that would be a scare that would be very difficult to forget! So many suburbanites think deer are 'cute' = how would any of us feel about hitting or being hit by an 800 lb deer? Happily you can get through this, but being stuck in southern Utah has its own challenges. I hope you all, humans and doggies, are all okay...


Oh my how awful! I am sending my best pawsitive vibes to you! I hope you get it fixed and on your way soon! PLEASE hootie don't run away!

Lacy said...

Dewey Dewster here....

Wyatt said...

We are just glad you are all okay. We send Aire-prayers to you all.


P.S. Hootie- stop stressing out your Mom, she has enough to worry about!

violett said...

Oh my god!
Which for a fright!
I hope everything am in the meantime again correct.

Samantha said...

Ohhhhh! We are so glad to hear YOU are all okay, but we send a gazillion golden vibes and our prayers that you can get that glass fixed and be on your way as soon as possible. How horrible. What damage from a deer - have heard these stories, but never saw the evidence. Stay well and safe and hope you found a doggie park. We'll check in again.
Hugs xo

The OP Pack said...

OMD, how awful - that must have been so scary. We hope you can get the windows fixed without too much trouble. Such a shame but we are glad you are OK. Now Hootie, behave, no more running off. Mom and Dad have enough to deal with.

Agatha and Archie said...

HOOOOOOOOOOTTTIIEEEEEE cut that out.....There got that off my chest.We are glad you are all alright(except the car of course) and are hoping that you are no longer stuck in the hotel and could could get the car fixed!! Sending MAJOR zen!! Love PL2 and A+A

K9friend said...

Prayers coming your way. What a frightening experience! I'm glad no one was injured.

Tucker said...

Wowsa, 1 deer did all that? Are you sure it wasn't a Moose? We have lotsa Moose up here and people get seriously hurt and even die when they hit them. I'm so glad you all are ok, that must have been awful scary.

My Dad hit a deer before I was around and it was a truck he had at the time. There was over $3000 damage and Momma says it didn't look anything near as bad as your car. That estimate isn't gonna be good.

It will all work out in the end, you are safe.

woof - Tucker

hkairedalespack said...

We're very sorry about the attacking deer. Are you sure there were several of them? Glad that no one was injured or sent to the hospital or vet. Situations like that are hard enough to deal with while at home and even more stressful when traveling. Sending warm thoughts and positive energy your way.
Hugs, Miley and Mariah

Audrey the Photographer Dog said...

How scary! Hope everything is okay.

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

sorry, I am late catching up with your news, oh my dog, how frightening, what an awful thing to happen.

I am about to read your latest post, to catch up even more, (sorry but we have got soooooooooo behind with our blog comments!)

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh my goodness! So now we know what caused the accident.
These things happen over here in Scotland too - thank goodness you are all OK - we know of some pretty awful stories involving deer!
Hootie, for goodness sake behave yourself, your humans have enough to contend with at the moment.
