Re: I killed my dog on Wednesday..........
My condolences John.
Some dogs just don't seem to learn to stay clear of vehicles. When I was a kid, my brother had a dog that would run underneath the tractor while it was moving. Our other dog would run alongside, but this one would dart between the wheels. He was injured once, but recovered.
Eventually, though, the wheel got him. Thankfully, my brother (the owner) was driving at the time. He's a pretty emotional guy sometimes, and I hate to think how he would've treated someone else if they had run over his dog. He cried too.
Sometimes there's just not much you can do. Getting close to anyone or anything entails risk. It's worth it though. I'm glad you have fond memories.
When a government takes over a people’s economic life it becomes absolute, and when it has become absolute it destroys the arts, the minds, the liberties and the meaning of the people it governs.
