    Well I had really good intentions but it didn't go too well. I was taking my dog to the local dog park this afternoon and this *&$*@# woman decided to pull out in front of my car and I couldn't stop in time so I smashed into her. My poor pup smashed into the windsheild ( she usually sits in the back seat and WON"T go in a kennel so that's not an option) I tried the soccer mom thing and attempted to keep her poor little body off the dash but is just wasn't possible. Most of her body ended up on the windsheild/dash area despite my efforts. The woman got out and apologized saying she was sorry the other car was up too far and she couldn't see me coming so she pulled out infront of me. I was soooo pissed and really worried about my dog. I felt like a mom who had let her kid down by not being safe.
    While I was at the vet with Brandy the woman's insurance agent called and said the woman claimed it was my fault!!! WTF how in her tiny little brain couldn't she say it was my fault!? Well to sum up I have spent 2 hours on the phone( when I should be studying for school) explaining what happend. Hopefully it will work out well. Brandy is ok and resting on the couch. She is on pain meds as she was banged up some. Thanks for listening as I am having a rough night and my FI is out of town. Uuugh.

    Oh noooo Stephanie, I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope your lil pup is ok. I know that must have been pretty scary and your nerves must be all messed up. So was this woman backing up?

      Poor pup! I hope he's ok! It doesn't look like your car has too much damage though, that's nice.

        Sorry you're having such a horrible day. Thank god you and your dog are ok!!! I can't believe she blamed it on you (well, I can because people are nuts but...). Hopefully it will all work out. Spend the rest of the night relaxing with Brandy!

          Thanks girls- She was turning right from a side street and turned in front of me and didn't have NEARLY enough time to get up to speed and I didn't have time to slow down. I could hear my tires squeal. My insurance company said she is at fault as she was reponsible for stopping not me.

          I just stopped shaking about an hour ago. I cried at the vet when Brandy got all worked up and I had to muzzle her. She was cowering away from me after as if I had hit her.

            Aww, poor Brandy. Glad she is ok though (with the exception of being a little banged up).

            Blah, car accidents are such an annoyance. Especially when the other person who's clearly at fault denies it! Just makes everything harder.

              I am so sorry and I know just how you feel. This happened to me last week (minus the dog part). The insurance company is "investigating it" blahblahblahb...it sucks. I gets better though, I promise.

              oh poor Brandy, I got the gate for the back of my SUV for my fur babies as I refuse to let them sit in the front, mainly because they will want to drive with me and they both feel that my lap is big enough for them.

              Sorry about your car and that the lady thinks she was not in the wrong, did you call the police?
