Running over dogs

No, I didn’t hit any.

I’m note sure what it it.  As I was driving to church today there was a guy walking his son and 3-4 small, white, fuzzy dogs.  (I’m assuming they were Bichon Frisés.)  Anyhow, none of them were on leashes, so they wandered wherever they wanted – including onto the road.  I stopped for one, who thought its walk would be better spent on the other side of the road.  I stared to go again.  Just as I was starting to get up to speed, another dog that had walked on ahead decided it wanted to cross the road too.  Right in front of me!

Since I was keeping a wary eye on it already, I was able to stop just fine, but what is it that possesses people to think it’s okay to take a whole bunch of dogs out, without training or leash, and just let them run around as you “walk” them?  Anyone who was driving with less care/who was driving distracted would have turned that fuzzy creature into a splat on the road.  Admittedly, it’s the driver’s responsibility to watch the road, but even the best driver can’t go from 65 to 0 when something darts out ten feet in front of him.

Anyhow, be sure to keep your dogs on a leash, or don’t scome crying to me when I run it over.
