Metro - Guide dog dragged by SkyTrain recovering

Palm, a six-year-old guide dog, is beginning her long road to recovery  after nearly being dragged to death on a SkyTrain platform Thursday  morning. After guiding her master, Iris Thompson, safely onto  the train, Palm somehow ended up outside the train’s doors when it  started moving.  “I didn’t know what to do. I was calling for  help … and there was no stop button on the train,” said Thompson. By  the time Palm’s leash snapped, she had three broken ribs, a punctured  lung, a massive cut along her right side and fractures down the length  of her nose. “The (guide) harness is probably the only reason  why this dog survived,” said Dr. Laurence Braun, the veterinarian who  treated Palm after the accident.  Braun estimates the cost of  Palm’s medical expenses at $15,000. To help Thompson cover the cost of  Palm’s veterinary bills, the hospital is accepting donations on her  behalf. The hospital has already received about $1,500.
