My cat opened the sliding glass door last night during dinner and let my sweet Rottie mix out. I never let her out with out a leash as she tends to run away. I had just discovered she was missing, and went out on to the porch to call her name. I heard the screeching of brakes and the yelp. I couldn't breathe it was dark and all I could hear was the running of the cars engine and the sobbing of the teenaged girl driver. My husband who had come out on the porch too approached the scene and consoled the girl letting her know it wasn't her fault. I reached the end of the porch as a black shadow ran into the yard. Oh my god she's still in one piece. She is very bruised and has some road rash, but is OK.
