*ucker.


Kody almost got hit by a bus today.

I take him to the baseball park every once in a while to throw the ball for him. I don't do it much anymore because he's 7 and he's big.


I've been doing this for 5 years now.


Today, he decided something was worth investigating across the street that he had to check out at full speed.


I usually goof around while I wait for Kody to get the ball and when I was done goofing, I looked at him just in time to see him running across the street while a bus is coming towards him at about 35mph.


I could only scream the only deep guttural scream I own and try to keep myself from passing out. I couldn't tell where Kody was in relation to the bus but neither one met. As he ran back, a car was coming from the other direction...Utter chaos...him running in the street, me running in the street screaming like a white trash mother who's lost control of her kids....


I tried so hard not to beat him; but, i really wanted to. Instead, I grabbed him by the scruff of his big-ass neck and screamed at him like he understood what I was saying.


For his punishment, his park visit was cut short and he had to stay in the garage for 15 minutes while I calmed down.


Fear of loss is why I hate being in love....

*ucker is right. I bet that scared the living crap out of you. I'm so relieved he wasn't hit.

Too bad he just doesn't get how much you truly love him.

I am so glad for you and him that he is okay. He kinda looks guilty in that pic.

TK...been thinking about what you said. I don't know you except through cyberspace but anyone who is kind enough to bury a squirrel that is run over in front of their house or set a ladybug free that is in a package of greens has a kind and gentle heart.

Hope that the fear of loss doesn't keep you from loving because I think you are a great person (funny as hell, too)!

I felt the same way when Jerry Lee was hit by the car. I immediately ran to comfort him but was quickly overcome by the urge to kick his ass for putting his life in danger and potentially breaking my heart.

I wouldn't have it any other way.

Awww, Kody doesn't know. He doesn't understand that buses and cars will seriously hurt him.
But...I can totally relate. I had Simon out for a walk one day, Doh dee doh, toddling along, having a great walk and a motorcycle whizzed by. For whatever reason, Simon lunged towards it and almost ended up in traffic on a busy street. I yelled at him, and started shaking & crying. He looked very confused. I don't know what I'm going to do when his time comes. GAWD!! I'll jump into traffic.

hudson got out about a month ago and i FREAKED. someone called us almost immediately (my number is on his tag - which he just LOST in the woods a few days ago!) and said they had him down the street. oooohhhh i wanted to just yell at him! but he didn't get it. he was just having as much fun as possible. sniffing around the neighborhood.
