Cola The Dog Getting New Prosthetic Legs Will Warm Your Heart

Despite experiencing the worst of human kind, Cola the dog still manages to wag its tail and embrace a pat. The dog was nine months old when its front legs were hacked off with a sword by a neighbour as punishment for chewing a pair of shoes in Bangkok, Thailand. The horrific incident was reported to the Soi Dog Foundation — Asia's largest animal welfare group focused on stray cats and dogs — which jumped in to save Cola's life. Losing a lot of blood and on the brink of death, Cola was moved from a small clinic to a larger, experienced veterinary clinic in Bangkok. Now Cola is learning to walk again with the help of prosthetic legs. Soi Dog Foundation's video of Cola walking on his new prosthetics has been viewed more than six million times on Facebook since it was uploaded this week. Foundation co-founder John Dalley told the ABC Cola snuck next door and "nibbled" on his neighbours shoes. The dog's elderly owner offered the neighbour the equivalent of $40 to compensate, but they returned that night armed with a sword. In court, the man said the attack was an accident, Mr Dalley said. The man was issued one month's detention for the crime. Mr Dalley said Cola was adapting well to the new legs. "He had wheels at first, just to keep him moving and get him going to allow the wounds to properly heal," he said. "He managed to adapt to walking on his back legs only kangaroo-fashion, but with [prosthetic] legs on is able to run and play.

Hey remember what I said about harming dogs a few blogs back? How if you do something like take an animal so happy and sweet like a dog and pollute his spirit with crystal meth, its like killing and drinking unicorn blood in Harry Potter where you lived a cursed half life. Well I think even worse should happen if you fucking chop off his two legs of a dog with a sword like you’re in the barbaric 18th century B.C. Seriously like first off the punishment didn’t fit the crime. A dog who’s teething bites your cheap shitty Thai shoes that are worth like 5 dollars to make and you go and chop off a dogs fucking legs? What kind of insane shit is that. Just ask for new shoes. Seriously man what kind of fucked up logic is that. No one thinks this is right besides the lunatic that did it. And if that is the case then logic should dictate that he should have his legs cut off. See If he got mad the dog for ruining his shoes which resulted in cutting off his legs, well since the people find it unjust, he should have his legs chopped off as well right?

Look I don’t want to get into all of that limb chopping nonsense right now. I’m just happy for Cola here. Seriously sci-fi movies and shit have always tried to come up with wacky human animal DNA crosses for what ever medical reason. Sharks so we’re immune to diseases, spiders so Stan Lee can create Spiderman. Well if we somehow harnessed the happy-ness DNA in a dog there wouldn’t be a need for any of that other nonsense. Think about it now. If I were to get my arms chopped off and had to deal with plastic robotic arms that can’t function like normal I might dwell in anger and violently murder who ever chopped off my arms. That’s not a dogs thought though. Once the pain stops and the blood clots up, he’s back to being a waggy bushy tailed puppy. Hobbling around on his back legs like a kangaroo didn’t matter. Guy’s just happy to live another day. What a fucking outlook on life. Glad Cola can run around now on all fours like he’s suppose to. I don’t think he even thinks of himself as a crippled dog with fake legs, probably thinks its like he got some super sleek cleats or something. Makes my heart grow.
