Deepest sympathies to Lorraine and family. Happened to us too. We live on a country road, on a curve. We don’t have a fence. The road had a thin layer of ice, and I guess the car couldn’t stop. My husband wants a new dog, and I told him NO, not without a fence because dogs are very agile about dodging them or slipping their leash/collar (This dog’s name was Blitzen, the German word for Lightning – you can possibly guess why). I have never forgotten what it felt like to pick her up from the road. Not doing that again if I can help it.
