Justice for Soskay
Life with dogs reports a man driving to fast on the wrong side of the road hit and kills the McNamee's dog while out on a nightly walk on Wednesday 09/21/16 at 9:00 pm. The family needs our help to find this killer and bring him to justice.
The accident took place in the community of Bel Air, Harford County, in Rockfield Manor. The "witnesses described the vehicle as being dark-colored, maybe an Audi."
The man must had been drunk. He was on the wrong side of the road, as well as driving too fast. There are speed limits law for a reason, as well what side of the road we drive on.
When my neighbor moved in about 2 1/2 years ago, he too was driving to fast. The one time my one of my dogs got out of the yard, he hit him. The guy hit him so hard he died within seconds after crawling in my lap for comfort. The sound of impact on my dog has never left me. I had rescued him the year before. I have never felt right since. My hear breaks like Rocky's death was a moment ago. My heart breaks being helpless not to be able to save him. The sad part the man live two doors down, I can't imagine how he got that small Toyota pickup to go so fast in such a small distance.
I did learn lots of valuable lessons. Such as, not speeding thought residential areas, with in the town, or city limits. We never know when an animal or child will appear in the roadway. Even if the vehicle has the right-away we must drive at proper speeds to be able to stop in times of emergency. Also, I keep my eye on the fence, as well as never let anyone open my gate. The sad lesson, I learned was do not take a right-away as a safety net. Regardless of the situations, giving-up the right away is a safer option. The only thing that may be hurt is someone ego. If we choose to be stubborn and stand on principles, a life may be lost or harmed.
Be sure to read Mcnamee's letter to the Soskay and pass this post along, so we can bring justice for Soskay, as well send a message to the young teenager that has been devastated by Soskay death that this is not her fault.
Even though, A friend open my gate and the neighbor was driving to fast, I blame myself 100%. So, I can see how this teenager can blame herself regardless if anyone tells her the man was at fault.
There are new rules and old ones enforced now at my house to honor Rocky's life and death. Fence is check daily. Lock is left on the gate. No one comes in my yard or house, regardless friends or family. My husband and I manage my gate, no one else does. Also, everyday I say to my dogs, "thank you for sharing your life with me and for the brand new day".
Of course, with me having Bullies now, most of my friends that stop by the house make sure I keep the gate shut. They too do not want to see me hurt again. Took me months to talk to people. My friends and neighbors both understand my dogs are not only trained guard dogs, they are family.
When I lost Rocky due to a action that was out of my control, I told the friend that open my gate after being told not too, never to come back. Perhaps, my true friends now realize I will pick my animals over any friends and family when it comes to their safety. When we take the time to get to know our furry love ones, such as the Mcnamees did with Soskay, we truly receive unconditional love and protection that is not possible even with the best of friends and family.
No matter who is at fault, as pet parents keeping our furry love ones safe is our job. Lesson can always be learned, so we may avoid such tragedy in the future. Figuring out how to avoid something despite that the situation was not a person fault is not admitting guilt, yet being wise. I was always told since I could remember, no matter what I will suffer the results of someone's action regardless if its my fault or not. The bet way to avoid a bad situation is to learn the lessons that are present, even if we not in the wrong.
Caring is sharing. Please share Bully Love & Devotion to spread animal awareness and education, while helping to find homes for dogs in need.
