Tragic mistake left dog owner without loved pet

On July 25, I made a tragic mistake by not securing our two dogs. The husky and blue heeler left the yard not for very long, only under 10 minutes. But that's all it took to have the little blue heeler run over and be killed by you, who ever you are.

On July 25, I made a tragic mistake by not securing our two dogs. The husky and blue heeler left the yard not for very long, only under 10 minutes. But that's all it took to have the little blue heeler run over and be killed by you, who ever you are. I found my dog in the middle of Winnipeg Street at 7 p.m. the same day.

I just wanted to let you know that yes, our two dogs got out of our yard. It was very much my fault, but I wish you could have stayed at the accident scene instead of continuing on your way.

I was tending to my 13-month-old daughter, and yes, they got out of our yard, only for a short time before you hit and killed him. Both dogs are well cared for, it's clear that you did not care.

Our dog died in the arms of a nurse who was driving home from work. At 7 p.m. there is hardly any traffic, could you not have avoided him?

Why could you not have stopped? I think that you, who ever you are, it's a terrible thing to leave a much loved dog to die in the middle of Winnipeg Street.

In the end, I am to blame for my dogs death because he was under my watch and I made a bad decision by not securing our dogs.

I just wish that you, the driver of the vehicle that struck and killed "Blue" could have stopped.
