Absurd. Absolutely absurd.
Looks like the staffer should have had some training before being allowed to use a leash. Tsk Tsk.
My vet (an all-animal doctor) says that horses are accidents looking for a place to happen.
rhhardin, makes sense. One wouldn't expect alligators on stilts to be stable.
Time for a "Dutch" Dachshund?
Yeah, when in doubt, pick 'em up when transporting the little guys.
Poor pooch! I would hate to be the staff member that took him for a walk to doggie heaven
I can imagine the specifics of how this happened, and it sounds horrible. Dog pinched in door, jogger trapped in door. The only way out for the jogger is to kill the dog by moving the door, but not moving the door kills the dog. I'm glad I was not there, and especially glad I was not the dog walker... or the dog.
Revolving doors are a stupid damned nuisance.
my tiny, much loved man, AlanIf I recall correctly, there was a bit of a dust up here concerning individuals vs. people, persons.Now, somebody thinks her dog is a man?
Don't let this news spread across the pond to the US... We're likely to try and pass some sort of revolving door control laws or something!!!!
@Smilin' JackI dislike them as well (always opting to use a standard door when I can), but apparently they're better in cold climates and building with large atriums at keeping the hot side hot and the cold side cold.
"Now, somebody thinks her dog is a man?"You gotta admit that's refreshing.
I hate revolving doors and this just confirms that they're evil.
That's too bad.
The reference to the "little man" confused me. Was shocked to find out it was a dog. Poor little thing. What a terrible way to die.
Who names a dog "Alan"?
As much as I enjoy the company of dogs, they're not people and for the most part we don't know what they're thinking
When I worked in NorCal, I worked for a company that was dog friendly. They would allow employees to be able to bring their dogs into the office as long as you followed certain rules, like having a baby gate and you let them out, they've been vaccinated. At first it struck me as being very odd to see dogs in an office environment, but after a while, I actually liked it and got used to having other dogs around since it made me miss my dogs back in San Diego that much less until I would fly back on the weekends to be with my family and them.After a while you got to know the dogs and they got to know you. I thought having them there brought all of us a lot closer as a team because the dogs were great ice breakers too. It made for a very comforting environment after a while and a lot of people were sad when there were a couple of the dogs that got sick and passed away. People rallied around their owners because they were also your friends.
EMD said... Who names a dog "Alan"?I personally wouldn't. But I did meet a British Bulldog pup named Fred and he was so damned cute. I wish we could post pics.
Obviously he wasn't a man, since he got killed in a revolving door being distracted by a jogger.
Revolving doors are ridiculously dangerous (especially to children and other slow-moving/inattentive people). Why are they allowed? It's perfectly nutty. They would never be introduced today if they were a new invention.
I was saddened to read this story because my wife and I have experienced the loss of our miniature dachshund, Coco. There is something about this breed that is particularly endearing.
Revolving doors are ridiculously dangerousPerhaps helmets and a seat belt can be mandated in order to use one. They would never be introduced today if they were a new inventionWorse yet they could have been invented to spin on a horizontal axis.

They would never be introduced today if they were a new invention. Escalator accidents are far more common than revolving door accidents. While I too am not a fan of revolving doors, they do make one cautious upon approach, ingress, and transitioning into egress. If egress is in doubt, you can also revolve until a state of comfort is achieved to attempt it within or outside the building.
