How Things Work Out

Sometimes it amazes me why things happen the way they do. Take this little situation for example...

Shawn, Emily, and I were driving around the back roads outside of town. It was a beautiful afternoon and the sun was getting low in the sky. Emily babbled as we took in the sights of the fields and farms passing by. Only this drive we were going extra slow. Slow, because, well, it's nearly turkey season and we just scout the fields for the birds. As we created this one particular hill we came across a surprise....

There was a big dog laying in the roadway, smack in the middle, and just exactly in the blind spot of the crest. After a good sixty seconds of sitting stopped in the roadway the dog sauntered off to the side. I was so glad that we didn't smush the poor mutt. If we had been going any faster we wouldn't have been able to stop in time and we wouldn't have been going so slow if we weren't looking for turkeys. It's amazing no one else hit the dog either.

Funny how things work out...

Looks like a lot of screech marks on the road, kind of makes me wonder if others have had to dodge the dog too. He looks like a super nice rottweiler and someone needs to come get their dog and take him home.

I think something happened to someone that dog loved on that spot.....see the way the skid marks go off the road. Any sign of a car in the ditch? Just asking. Stella

It certainly is scary to come upon an animal in the middle of the road when you're driving down what you think is an open highway. I'm so glad you were able to miss him and avoid ruining the rest of your day. I agree with the commentor said something must have happened to someone the dog loved at that spot. They are so loyal.
