I never thought it would come to me begging strangers for money on the internet but this situation was such an unexpected and sudden thing. Thursday, March 25th my dog was hit by a car after she ran out toward the street when I was playing with her in the yard. I’m not exactly sure what caught her attention, because she never does that but she ended up getting clipped by someone who was speeding. My street isn’t typically busy, and unfortunately, because if this people feel as though they can drive faster, without having to worry about other cars. Some people drive like it isn’t a neighbor hood at all. Anyways, the woman who hit her didn’t just drive off like nothing happened, luckily, however she said she wouldn’t be helping to pay in any way for the inevitable medical bills. I’m currently in college and money has been a bit of a problem with me lately. Yes, I work and have been also doing my on side business to make the extra money but an unexpected expense like this isn’t going to be an easy payment for myself. She gave me an attitude and told me that if I knew how to take care of and train my dog this wouldn’t have happened. This really set me off, as I am the type of person that, if lost everything today, I would make sure my dog had food to eat and water to drink WAY before myself. Maybe I am in the wrong for not recognizing some thing had caught Luna’s (my dog) eye, but the woman driving seemed to be going a lot faster than what she should have been, I can also argue she should have been paying better attention, however, I understand that not everyone expects a dog to run into the road, but at the same time you have to, as a driver, be ready for any situations like that, ESPECIALLY in a neighborhood. My best guess is that the woman has to be liable in some type of way but at that point in time, I didn’t even think about the cost of a trip to the vet, I just needed to make sure Luna was going to be okay.
