Even after fifteen minutes of walking, my legs were still wobbly and I was still a bit dizzy. I was able to overcome the urge to vomit a few minutes before I reached the source of the pained barks and howls.
A big dog with a dirty, soaked white coat and pointy ears was trapped under a nest of sticks in a puddle of murky brown water. I slowly knelt down, almost falling flat on my face and reached over to him to remove the sticks. He growled and snapped at me, but thankfully he missed my hand. I had forgotten that panicked and/or injured dogs were usually aggressive. I scooted away from the dog a bit and approached him from a different angle. He couldn't bite me from my current position. My vision was still a bit blurry and I was exhausted, but I was determined to save anyone and anything I could at this point. He continued to snarl and snap at me.
“I'm trying to help you,” I muttered to him, although I knew he couldn't understand me. I tried to pull the sticks off of him, but they were rooted in the ground and I barely had any strength left. I then got the idea break them apart into little pieces, and soon the dog was free. He was staggering and bumping into things just like I was, his tail tucked between his legs as he continuously sneezed and coughed up water. I was surprised he hadn't been drowned.
“C’mere, boy!” I called to him, patting my thighs. “Let's go find a shelter.” He turned back around to look at me for a moment, and then he fell flat over onto his side. I gasped and ran to him. I tried to gently shake him and even give him CPR, but he wouldn't wake up!
“Wake up!” I cried. I picked him up, despite my lack of strength at the moment, and tried to sprint for the nearest shelter. My arms and legs gave out on me moments later. I dropped the dog and collapsed myself.
