Another pet killed

On the way home from work today, I hit a big, shepard-type dog on 174. He came from nowhere and I had no chance to avoid him. I stopped, but could not find him. I was almost hit by drivers who were just plain in a hurry to get home. I went looking up Hansen Lane to try and find a owner. No luck.

So what I am saying is, I am sorry I hit your dog, but also, I am sorry you did not care enough to keep your family pet locked up in a pen or a least on a runner. He might still be here. And for you drivers that just about got me, those white signs along the road that say 45, 35, or 25 – that is how fast you are supposed to go, not a reminder of your IQ.

The yellow lines in the middle of the road mean one side is yours and one side is mine. STAY ON YOUR SIDE! People, slow down, and people, keep your animals under control and do not let them wander.
