Photos from Google Maps in the Chile region show one image of a cute, scrappy little dog playing in the street. The very next photo image shows the lil’ guy motionless in the street — and there is no sign of the Google Maps crew stopping to help. Google has pledged to research the incident, but that won’t bring the little guy — or girl — or transgender species — back.

On the positive side, we’re announcing our officially unofficial NMR contest to posthumously name the pup. I just thought this up, so prizes and whatnot may very well be nothing — I suppose it depends on the number of entries we receive and the creativity of them. So there could be something!
