True that. I'd probably just end up shooting someone when I tried to cross my legs in the theater.

I ran up a exit ramp to catch a stray dog that was wandering towards the highway traffic. I got within a dozen feet of him. He ran into the oncoming headlights. I yelled NOOOOOOOOOOO! like in the movies. Totally f—king helpless. The dog made it across to the median. He didn't last long there. Goddammit. Goddammit. Goddammit.

Oh no, how sad. Poor dog, and so sorry pix that you had to watch that happen.

Very very sad. Hope this story makes you feel a bit better:

One wet and windy November night 4 years ago, my son came home and said a fox had just got knocked down at the end of our road. I went up there to see if it needed to be moved. But it wasn't a fox, it was a dog, with a big hole in her side. So I took her to the vet and said if no-one claims her, can I have her? Nobody did so she became mine. She is a very happy dog and I am a very lucky person! Cat loves her too.

I am sorry pix, that is awful.  When I was about 9 years old, I was walking my dog and across the street two kids, much younger than me, were fighting over holding a puppy.  They had no supervision that I remember seeing, and they were right by the road.  The puppy got away from them and ran across the street towards my dog.  He was hit by a car going way too fast down my street.  It's an image that still sticks with me to this day, so I know how you are feeling.

I'm so sorry, pix. That sounds awful. Poor dog.

I work for a pet recovery service and had to listen to a guy hold a dog that he found in his arms as it died by a highway last week. Really awful. Keep your pets safe, everyone.
