A veteran’s dog was hit by a car on Veterans Day, which sounds about as sad as it gets. But as the Detroit News reported here, there was a happy side to the story. A BluePearl surgeon was able to repair a fracture on Makenzie, a Yorkshire terrier. And people raised thousands to help pay for the operation.
