To the Cumberland, Maine driver in Maine who saved my dog's life

The biggest fear a dog parent can have (in my opinion) almost came true today and that is my reflection note. You know that horrible dream where your fur baby runs into the street and gets hit by a car and then you wake up sweating and crying?

Do you know that feeling where your heart sinks and everything around you feels like it's in slow motion when your dog slips out of his collar and runs into the street because he thinks you're “playing”? Well, that was the first time this happened to me when it was no longer in my dream but in reality. My golden doodle maverick slipped out of his collar and ran straight into oncoming traffic. It's always so scary because sometimes they go into fight or flight mode and get so nervous that they walk right into danger without even realizing it.

It seemed like my whole world stopped and went into slow motion as Mav ran straight at a car that looked like it was going way too fast to be able to stop in time. To my most pleasant and grateful surprise, the lady driving the car stopped as fast as she could and just in time before I lost my doodle men forever 🙁 I'm getting sad writing this so I'm going to stop but I just want this lady, whoever she is, to know that she saved my heart tonight by saving my best friend. Maybe this letter will reach you someday, you never know on the internet, and should it reach your desk, thank you xox.
