I have a Name That Trauma and if anyone can help me to find the title I can promise him/her riches beyond imagining! (Which is tragic as they will need to imagine them as I am broke.)
Okay, a possibly made-for-T.V. movie with a GIL GERARD-ish-type male lead. Said male lead gets into a pissing match with a gang of untamed youth.
Untamed youth lure the guy’s St. Bernard out into the street and play catch with him while one of their friends plows pell-mell towards the dog in a car. They leave the dog’s crumpled corpse on the male lead’s front porch where he finds it and cries into its fur.
I had forgotten this until we adopted Homer, a St. Bernard, then it all came flooding back. He was most distressed when I told him about, but said that he felt strangely compelled to see it. So, to satisfy his want for canine horror, I really need to figure this out.

UPDATE: NAME THAT TRAUMA SOLVED! Let’s all give a big KINDERTRAUMA salute and welcome back hug to SENSKI who came out of hibernation today and solved this one with 1973’s OUTRAGE! (We love you SENSKI!)
