Yesterday, I was driving down the busy main highway here in town and as I passed the road my old high school is on, I had to slam my breaks because there was a yorkie in the road! I was so lucky the guy behind me wasn't riding my bumper, 'cause he would've rear-ended me for sure! When I was stopped, ALL I could do was honk my horn, wait for the dog to get out of the way, go, and HOPE he didn't get hit because he kept walking away from where his "owner" was standing in her front yard calling him... So as I pulled away, after the dog got out of the way, I yelled at her that she needs to keep her dog on a leash. I don't get people... WHY, if you HAVE a fenced in backyard, would you let your dog LOOSE in your unfenced front yard!? This woman was just standing in the middle of her yard, calling this dog! She didn't make any move to come get him(he stood right in front of me for 3-4 minutes) and he obviously wasn't listening to anything coming out of her mouth... And he was an old dog too... How he made it so long with such an idiot owner, I dunno.... Some people just do NOT need to own dogs.
