Cats, not dogs, are reputed to have nine lives.
But one plucky Chihuahua that was struck by two vehicles last Friday and lived to bark about it is challenging that old wives' tale.
Lance Roe, a Lawrenceburg man who witnessed the dog being struck, said he can't believe it's still alive.
'I'm just amazed,' he said. 'After the two vehicles hit it, I went over the side of the road and it had blood coming out of its mouth and wasn't breathing. We all thought it was dead.'
