Coal for Christmas to driver

To the editor:

To the person who hit the dog and didn’t stop on Rt 32, in Jefferson, on Sunday morning (12/11) at 7 a.m…I will call you a coward because the paper will not let me print what I would really like to call you and what I am sure other pet lovers and fur baby parents reading this will be thinking.

This fur baby you hit, a Rottweiler, a puppy, “Baby” was new to the family having just filled the void of a recently passed fur baby from cancer “Bota.” She was a lap dog, “Roy’s” playmate, loved to go camping, rides, and cruise on the golf cart.

You left her people, kids, grandkids, devastated at this holiday season.

No, she shouldn’t have been in the road, but you didn’t need to be so heartless as to not stop and offer your condolences, it wasn’t a squirrel, turkey or a cat for that matter. Someone reading might say maybe you didn’t know you hit something, well the pieces of your car left in the road beg to differ.

I hope Santa leaves you COAL for Christmas. PS: if you want your car parts, stop and get them. Trash is Wednesday.
