Do dog owners, cat owners and other pet owners...

i am a cat owner, i talk to my old cat as if she is my daughter
No talking down to the dogs here, but I do raise the pitch of my voice, and repeat certain phrases when I'm working with them, so they know I'm pleased with what they're doing.

A puppy across the road at a neighbors house got ran over and killed last night. From what I hear, this isn't the first time they have had a dog ran over. Are there any laws or fines to disobedient owners that let their animals get ran over without keeping them leashed or inside? I understand it is...
