Im sure they'll come out just fine on the house but its a shame about the poor dog. I cant imagine how it would be to have something as freaky as that take your pet you've had for so long. The house is obviously totally destroyed and will have to be rebuilt, not to mention the contents. The company will no doubt have to put them up someplace in the meantime and will be lucky if they dont get sued over the whole thing.
I know in Florida as far as the pet is concerned if someone kills your dog you can only sue for the amount you paid for it. Pets have the same consideration as any other piece of property and nothing more.
That's really too bad about their home, it's so fortunate no one was home but so sad the poor dog was killed. I thought it was touching that despite the fact the family lost their home they were more concerned about finding their GSD. That was a sweet picture of the dog and the little girl.
Wow, just total destruction. Yes, I have to believe the truck was going faster than 20 mph too but those trucks are heavy and solidly built. Poor family. Such a shocking way to lose your dog and your home.
