A local dog has run out onto the road in front of a moving lorry on purpose this evening after his owner put on a his Derek Ryan CD it has been revealed.
Derek Ryan from county Carlow has sent his condolences to the dog and his owner in a heartfelt tweet today.
The dog’s owner Micky Fatspatrick told Newry Spud:
“I really had no idea that Ben (the dog’s name) was so depressed listening to Derek Ryan. I like listening to Derek’s songs every morning, noon, evening and night; I just assumed Ben also loved it.
I saw the dog put his paws over his ears and sigh when ‘God’s Plan’ came on for the 137th time and then he just barked what sounded clearly like ‘Fuck This Shit’ and ran in front of an articulated lorry. I’m devastated.”
