Show courtesy after killing family pet?

To the Editor:

Is it too much to ask for a little common courtesy from other people? On Tuesday June 12, 2012 at about 11 p.m. someone hit my dog (in Parishville) and just kept going.

My mom was sitting in the living room when she heard a car go by accompanied with a “thud” that just sounded funny to her, the car slowly went by our house but kept going.

We knew our dog was outside so we went looking for him but could not find him. A little while later two guys stopped and said they saw him on the side of the road and he was dead. How can someone be so heartless to just keep going?

All I am saying is people should have respect for others, if this happened to you I’m sure you would want someone to stop and at least ask if it was your dog they think they hit.
