Thanks for that, Doug; I had heard something of how dogs can or can't judge
speed, so this is a very good fact to have when making crossing decisions in
areas that aren't the safest.

Tracy, I agree; I have crossed highways only when there is no other option.
I understand that although a dog may see a car coming, they real can't judge
whether they will cross before the car hits much above 15 miles per hour.
Doug: getting squished by a car makes one two-dimensional.

: Marilyn, while it's true that a dog will refuse to go if she sees a car

: I'm with Cindy. I don't like crossing highways at all anymore. I know
: sometimes it's the only way to go, but I would much rather not.
