“What I’m being told is she sat there and was crying and everything else, you know because I couldn’t get up,” John says. “That’s the type of dog she is.”
John suffered major injuries including two broken legs, a broken arm and 15 facial fractures. He will undergo surgery on Thursday. Lucy is currently limping around with a torn ACL and leg fractures. Right now, she is clearly missing John.
“We found out that beagles actually cry, they have tear ducts,” said Caitlan Miles, John’s daughter. “So after the accident, when I was home with her, she had tears running down her fur. She is walking around lost without him.”
Lucy will have surgery on Friday. A fund has been set up to help pay for the cost of her care.
“Once the winter’s over, if I’m recovered and Lucy’s recovered you can bet we’ll be out doing our walking again,” John said.
Boston Police told WBZ-TV the driver stopped after the accident and will not be charged.
