Ok so it's taken me a while to get this out but here goes: Last friday I had an awful accident. I was driving the kids to school when a dog ran out in front of my car. I did a dead stop but still hit the dog anyways. My kids were traumatized as can be expceted. Me too, we love dogs. It was so unnecessary. I pulled over but the dog ran away and I couldn't find it. I have no idea if it is alive or dead or how seriously it was injured. I am so pissed off with the dog's owners. I mean.. People, we're ment to look after them. They don't know any different. How can someone let their pet run free on a really busy road in peak morning traffic? Crazy shit. I called the vet to check if anyone brought in a dog matching it's description but nobody has. That just pissed me off even more. Craig was working in the area where the whole thing went down and he climbed up on the roof and didn't see any dog lying in the fields or surrounds so I suspect that it didn't die.. I really hope it didn't and I hope it isn't suffering anywhere. The damage to my car: R9 550.
People please, if you have dogs make sure they can't escape from your yard and never walk without a leash. If you see dogs in your area roaming and you can, stop your car, pick them up and take them to a shelter or vet so that they don't end up sufffering the same fate as the poor dog that I hit.
Still, people who have an IQ lower than that of the dog they adopt should not be allowed to own them. End of story.
