Laura Johnson goofs around with her eight-year-old cat, Ozzy, while at her Crystal Lake home Tuesday, December 2, 2014. Last October Johnson was taking her dog on a walk in front of her home when a man drove over the curb and killed her dog while running over Laura's foot. Because of Laura's disability, the dog was her best friend and a major part of her life that gave her a chance to be responsible and care for something.
