I'm sitting here crying my eyes out right now because I could've prevented something and I didn't. My mom and I were out driving around looking for vehicles, mom is looking for a car sooo we were in a different town and I was driving. There was a nice 4-runner on the side of the road so I stopped so she could get the number. As I pulled in to the road beside where it sat this lil dog came out to my car and even tried to get in twice. His lil face was soo cute, you could tell he was an older dog, something looked wrong with his eye and was missing several teeth. I brushed it off as him being someones because he had been groomed recently. SO I pushed him out of my car as I sat in the drivers seat and he kept trying to get in the back floor board, mom had the door open while writing down the number. This lil guy kept trying to follow me...so I backed up and tried to get him to follow me back to where he came from (we seen him in this parking lot when we pulled in). So after finally not seeing him around me or my mirrors I pulled out into the road thinking he had went back, when I looked in my rear view mirror and saw he was at the edge of the road, I was praying he didn't try to go across but he did. This STUPID lady in this car came flying down the road and she could've easily gotten over and I kept starring from my rear view mirror praying he didn't get hit but she did, she hit him. I immediately got nauseous, all I could see was him rolling under her car. She didn't stop or nothing, by this time I had to merge onto the highway. All I see now is his poor little face looking at me as I pushed him out of my car. WAS he a stray?? DId someone drop him off and that's why he was trying to get in my car? If only I had brought him home..OMG I can't stand it!! I can't stop crying and I can't stop seeing his face when I close my eyes. I'm sooo emotional over animals as it is, constantly trying to help our humane society find homes for their animals, I take in strays myself..WHY did I have to see this today?? I prayed and asked god to forgive me for turning away this poor dog and I prayed that he didn't suffer. I just can't stop crying.
This IS never ending. :(
