    Found a dead dog.

    I took our Jess for a walk this evening and decided to go a different way for a change. I came to a small body of water that forms mainly in winter or if it's been wet enough. It dries out during long hot dry spells. Anyway, I found our Jess sniffing a dead creature laying at the side of the water and then realised it was a dog.
    It was a terrier type with a docked tail, was black in colour. It was starting to decompose around it's muzzle so you could see it's teeth but it's body was still intact. It was soaked so I don't know whether it had been in the water or not. We did have some rain last night but, otherwise, it has been dry recently and I doubt this dog has been dead that long.
    It looked like a young dog judging by it's teeth and it didn't seem too thin or anything. Looked like it was well fed.
    There was no collar or anything.

    In all the years I've walked down the fields and I've come across dead cats sometimes or dead wild creatures but never a dog. It was quite disturbing to see and very unusual.

    I'm so sorry you had to see this poor dog. I hope the poor thing didn't suffer. RIP unknown dog.

    check lost ads to see if perhaps the owner is still looking for him/her.

    That is so sad. Do you have an animal control officer you can call? RIP little terrier doggie.

    I'm not sure if anyone will be interested in a deceased dog.

    A lad who trains at my martial arts school works on the phones for the RSPCA and I'll see him tomorrow evening. I'll ask him what he'd do if somebody phoned up to report a dead dog.

    i think what they mean is do you have an animal cntrol to call and pick up the dog? If the dog died from a illness and some animal comes along and eats it, it could infect more animals, etc.

    Youre in England right? Dog warden should come out and pick it up. If not, try RSPCA, or the council as a last resort. Poor pup. I hope the owner's traced, they're probably still looking for it

    That's so sad. Judging by how you described it, it sounds like he was somebody's pet.

    Yeah, thats what I thought.

    We do have a dog warden. Maybe I'll try them. The dog is down the fields though but you can drive to within about 100 yards of where it is. There is a road nearby but certainly not close enough to warrant me believing it was run over.

    Aww, poor little guy.
    I remember about a year ago we were walking through a field and found a dead calf in the water that had fallen down a slope and drowned to death. It was really sad and its so hard to get that image out of your head.

    RIP unkown dog.
