The gate was open. A bunny hopped by. Roxy’s instincts took over as she darted after the rabbit, into the street. Simultaneously, a red pickup was moving through. Boom. Little Roxy squelched. The truck screeched. I went into emergency mode. I scooped up my dog, bloodied and limp, and ran her into my house. It was afterhours and the vet was closed.
