It's just part of living on a paved country road. The neighbors raise Burmese mountain dogs and a "puppy" came across the road last year and an old dude hit it. He was Wayyyyyy more shook up than my neighbors. (The puppy was well over 100 pounds and died at the vet)We hit a dog once by an acreage - good size Lab that just ran out of the tall ditch grass in front of me, never had a chance to stop.
The family was out in the yard, they saw it happen, I pulled over immediately hoping for the best, walked back to where the dog was and apologized profusely to the owners. They were very understanding and said this wasn't their first dog to get hit living on a highway. Don't get me wrong they were still upset, as was my family.
This happened probably 5 years ago and I still think about it every time I drive past that place.
