Oh Pepper!

I'm shaken this afternoon. Bill called about an hour ago to say that Pepper had been hit by a car. She is unscathed, thank heaven. But probably none the wiser for her very close call.

Carol Brown was bicycling down highway 177 on her way back from a strenous shopping trip to the Strong City Grocery. Pepper as usual started barking and gave chase. An approaching car slowed but somehow hit her. Puppy tumbled to the side of the road and the car sped on. Pat was pissed, but Bill talked him out of pursuing the hit and run driver.

Hard to blame the driver for hitting a badly behaved dog; but easy think ill of a person who doesn't even pause to find out what happened.
