Ducked home from work early, because my beloved found out today that her mum was in a car accident yesterday. Looks like an oncoming car in the other lane crossed the line, and hit her head on. She has fairly minor-sounding injuries, luckily. But poor little Silver, the utterly beloved family dog, was also in the car, and wasn’t restrained at all. She didn’t make it through. She was a really cool, scrappy, friendly little dog, and everyone loved her. It’s a damn shame.
But man, it could have been so much worse – a head on crash, on country roads, at country road speeds? That could have ended very very badly for everyone involved. I’m just glad Annettes mum is OK.
We’re going to go see them ASAP.
