Yesterday I was having a hard time dealing with the fact that I had hit and killed a dog in the road with my vehicle. I got lots of support from friends and fellow bloggers and it really helped!
Arriving home I saw a small dog dead in the road in front of the neighbor's house. Last thing I wanted to do after what had just happened to me but I went to look and it had a collar. I was pretty sure it was their little girl's dog, although it was pretty hard to even tell it was a dog by then. They weren't home yet so I cleaned it up best I could so she wouldn't see it, and left mom a phone message. She called me back a bit later and confirmed, and said it was going to be a tough night around there... apparently they had arrived home and missed the dog and were out calling for it before she checked her messages. Hearing that I was SO GLAD I beat them home... bad enough for the little girl to lose her dog, without having to see it like that! And somehow it makes me feel better about "my" dog - whoever hit the neighbor's little dog did not stop and neither did a WHOLE BUNCH of other people... I am so angry AND so sad, I don't know what to do with myself... I just cannot fathom the "human" race sometimes.
