    Yup.

    Waited for the local PD to show up as wandering around in peoples back yards in the middle of the night didnt seem like a good idea. Dog went home and was on the guys back porch not far from where got hit. Cop and i both told the guy to take the dog to the vet, dont know if he did or not. Cope was gaging guys reaction to see if he was going to be an ass about the dog getting hit. If he had been, cop would have issued a 500 leash fine. Owner was ok, but dog was banged up pretty good. might have had broken pelvis. Hope the guy took her to vet.

    other than a good size bruise to my leg where the dog hit it and 900 bucks worth of damage to the bike, everything worked out. Amazing the amount of damage a 100 lb dog can do when you hit em doing 40mph or so.

    It doesn't take 100 #. I hit a raccoon on 94 in a Mustang and destroyed the front valence and bent the bottom of the radiator support. It was a big coon, but not 100#,lol. No one could believe it was only a raccoon. Of course I was going 95.....
