So upset right now and there is nothing I can do about it. I was driving on a dark two lane road about an hour and a half ago and out of nowhere a black poodle appeared. I could not hit my brakes or even swerve because there were three other cars on the other side of the road passing by me at the same time (which I think the cars blinded me because I never saw the poodle until the last second anyway). I CANNOT believe I hit the poor animal head on. I have never hit an animal before and I am completely a mess right now. I feel so guilty and I am so sensitive over animals and death anyway. I did not leave the dog behind--I took it with me in a box and I will go back tomorrow to find the owners if possible. It had a collar on but no tags and there were too many houses with the lights off this late at night. The only peace I have at this point right now is that I think it died instantly because I never saw it move or breathe after I stopped my car. I know this isn't the best thing to post on a message board but everyone I know is now asleep and I am pretty traumatized over it. Of course there is nothing I can do about it. I just keep thinking about the moment when I saw it, and hit it, and it's killing me right now. I am pretty sure I will never be able to go to sleep tonight.
