Many years ago, when horses and buggies were the only mode of transportation, something incredible happened right here in Leavenworth, Kansas. A father took his daughter shopping one afternoon, and after awhile they decided to return home to take ‘mother' along with them. They returned home, and while the daughter waited in the carriage, the father went inside to get the mother. While he was gone, something scared the horses, who took off running down the street at full speed. The little girl had a dog who happened to be laying on the front porch, and the dog took off after the horses. Catching up with the runaway horses, the dog jumped up, grabbed one of the halters, and began trying to stop the horses before they turned a corner to sharp and upset the carriage, which could have killed the little girl. The horses slowed, and eventually stopped, but the dog was trampled to death in the process.
