Sometimes bad things happen to good dogs. On the afternoon of Monday, June 3, a terrier mix somewhere between the age of two and four was thrown from a black, flat-bed truck on Powell Avenue in Newburgh. Witnesses of the event rushed in to help the dog, who was uninjured. After being taken to the Hudson Valley Humane Society headquarters in Pomona, the wiry white-and-tan dog was given the name Bennie.

Bennie is 35 pounds, neutered, and very sweet, according to the Hudson Valley Humane Society website. The shelter has received many applications to adopt Bennie, and is in the process of making a decision about his future home. To inquire about the status of Bennie's adoption, call the HVHS at (845) 354-3124.

The person responsible for throwing Bennie out of the truck has not yet been found. Anyone with information is asked to e-mail reportcruelty@hvhumane.org.

    Our dog, Shazam, is quirky. For instance, he'll stand with his head thrust into a bush for 10 minutes, unmoving, gently flaring his nostrils as if in floral reverie—behavior I've never seen in any other dog. Lee Anne refers to this as Shazam's "Nature Boy" pose. I'm sure dog psychologists the world over understand why a dog would do this, but to me, it just seems like our dog has a goofy, Ferdinand the Bull-like love of hedges.
