I don't believe that the dog suffers permanent damage, but if it does, I'm okay with that. I'm not okay with crashing because of a dog running under my front wheel or because I'm kicking the dog in the face to try to make it back off. I hate effing dogs and their stupid owners who don't keep them on their own property.
Amen, Grandpa.
