Are cats the only ones with 9 lives? I don’t think so.

This is the story of Suzie, believed to be a Bichon Frise/Poodle cross.  Suzie lives in Taunton, Massachusetts.

Earlier this month, Suzie got out and darted across Route 44 in front of a Toyota that was driving about 50 mph.  The driver slammed on his brakes and, not feeling anything  and not seeing the dog, he continued driving assuming he had missed Suzie.

Eleven miles later, he was flagged down by another driver in East Providence, Rhode Island who saw a little white dog wedged up behind the front grill of his car.  He drove immediately to the police and animal control officers helped rescue a wedged Suzie from the front of his car.

Suzie was extremely frightened but had no broken bones.  Her injuries included a broken tooth and a concussion.  She was soon on the mend with pain medication and antibiotics.  Her owners have taken her home and hopefully she won’t have any more close encounters with cars.

Here’s Suzie’s story which appeared on local television:
