Letter about dog killed near Bristol Center

This is to the person driving along by the house with the white picket fence on Hwy. 44 in Bristol Center the evening of October 10, and you know who you are. We try to teach our children and grandchildren right from wrong, what’s good, what’s bad, respect for others and their belongings. Then we have people like you. You’re driving Hwy. 44 too fast more than likely. You see something in the road; you don’t try to stop, you keep going. You hit a family’s pet minature dachshund and you saw the kids out playing but you just keep going. The children are watching, but you don’t have the decency to stop to see if the dog is hurt, dead, or anything, not even to say you are sorry. That dog Peppy was as much a part of the family as anyone. It breaks my heart to see my children and grandchildren hurting.

It could have been a child. People please slow down driving on Hwy. 44. I have watched cars go by and traveling more than the speed limit. One day it will be someone’s child getting hit and/or killed by someone on that road.
