Letter about dog killed near Bristol CenterTo the person who ran over our dog:As you were traveling down Hwy. 44 west toward Bristol Center you passed by a house with a white picket fence and children playing out in the yard with their pets on Friday evening, 10-10-2003. That was a nice sight to see wasn’t it? But the sight our kids had to see wasn’t so nice. You hit their miniature dachshund, that was barely six months old, on the edge of the road. So, the sight they had was of their family pet lying in the road with blood coming out his head, gasping for breath. You didn’t stop or slow down.The kids ran to the house with their dog and tried everything they could to keep him alive but didn’t succeed. We were at work when we got the call. “Mom, Peppy got hit by a car and he is bleeding. Mom, what can I do? Listen to him breathe, can you hear that Mom? Mom, what should I do he won’t move? They didn’t even stop, they kept going and they had to know they hit something because his blood is everywhere.”So, for that heartless person out there, we haven’t been able to sleep and have had a hard time with this. We had to bury Peppy today. We were going to have his picture taken in Preston at the vets office. Peppy was a long awaited family member that my husband’s parents got for him for his birthday for $350 and it only took seconds for you to make him vanish from us forever. Mary McHanHarmony, MN

I find the article by former Senator Max Cleland in the September 29th edition of the Journal to be misleading. He asks if you really want to know what is going on in the war in Iraq, .....
