I'm on my way home from work, a quick stop at the store for a bottle of merlot, then rolling on down the road at about 38mph in a 35 zone. There is a couple people walking down the sidewalk with their dogs. Suddenly, one of them damn dogs darts into the street right in front. There is another car to my left. I hit the brakes, swerve to the left as far as I can without hitting the other car. The girl screams. I never hear or feel the thump of hitting the dog. I have no idea how I managed to miss it, but I did. I guess I swerved just enough and slowed down just enough to not turn that dog into a bloody lump. Keep your damned dog on a leash if it's too damn stupid to stay out of the street.
