The article on the Dog throwing Up to date Dog throwing, a video of the Dog kicking and biting, dog urine, dog feces, dog blood and a video showing a dog throwing itself down a drain were among the many topics discussed during a panel discussion on dog throwing.
But the discussion was also full of other subjects including a dog’s reaction to being kicked by a cat and a dog who threw a glass to her.
“She did it because she wanted to, because she didn’t have anything else,” said the owner of the two-year-old Lab, named Sam, in a video posted to YouTube by the Halifax Humane Society.
“I was shocked,” said Sam’s owner, Michael Smith.
“The only thing she wanted was to be safe.”
“She’s a little crazy, but I think she’s just got an awesome sense of humour,” said Smith, adding he hopes his pet gets to a veterinarian.
“My hope is that this is the first dog in Nova Scotia who does this sort of thing.”
The video has been viewed more than 9,000 times and been viewed by more than 500,000 people.
The Nova Scotia Humane Society said the incident happened at a home in Dartmouth, N.S., and that it was investigated and determined it was not intentional.
The video was recorded by a member of staff, not by the dog’s owner.
The Halifax Humane society is now working with the police department in Dartmouth and the dog owners involved are cooperating with the investigation, said spokeswoman Emily Gorman.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the dog,” she said.
“We’ve also reached out to the owner, the owners of the other dogs involved, and the police, to see if they have any information to share about the incident.”
“We do want to make sure that we’re doing everything we can to support the owner and the dogs involved,” said Gorman, adding that the Halifax shelter will donate up to $20,000 to the family.
The Halifax animal shelter is working with police and the Halifax Veterinary Hospital to help determine how the incident was captured on video. “
So, the focus is on the dog and making sure that it’s safe for the dog.”

“It’s something that we can investigate and try to learn from,” Gorman said.
The police investigation will take about three months, according to the shelter.
The owner of Sam, who asked not to be identified for fear of retaliation, said she hopes to have the video out by next week.
The animal shelter said the video is still under investigation, and that its staff is “evaluating the situation and what the next steps are.”
“I just want to let people know that they have a safe home, and it’s not a place for them to go and play or mess around,” Sam said in the video.
