Brandy is a stray adopted the kinds folks at Pui O Delicious. We met him when he was just a puppy and he's now a friendly, playful dog who's endeared himself to many of the restaurant's diners and Pui O villagers.
So there are many of us who were appalled when we read that he's been hit by a car. Thankfully, he's only broken a leg.
But that straight stretch of South Lantau Road is, as blogger China Droll noted, a real death trap.
I have often watched, heart in mouth, as speeding cars - and buses - narrowly miss the dogs, cats and sometimes buffaloes crossing that road.
The police say they cannot monitor that road all the time but can't they just install a speed bump or two to force drivers to slow down?
Or how about a speed camera? Proceeds can go towards helping animals needlessly crippled by these idiot drivers.
