I was on my way to YKWIA's, and a dog with a leash came running in front of my car suddenly, with a man chasing it. I hit the brakes for everything I was worth. It activated my anti-lock brakes. I managed to stop. The man said thanks and kept running after the puppy. I had someone behind me, so I drove on to my friend's house, shaking and crying the whole way--and that was having avoided hurting or killing the dog.
Which is one reason I cannot see the movie from the previews called A Dog's Purpose, as the trailer alone made me cry a lot. I'll try to post it here.
