Not sure I mentioned, but my sister moved from her "track" house to a larger house on a main road in our town. Her house sits directly across from the end of a north south road, so I guess you'd say she's at the "t". Anyhow, we talked about how weird it is and that she hopes no one ever forgets to stop....wellllllllllllllll, this afternoon, a young man traveling at a HIGH rate of speed...did NOT stop. He went to the right of her driveway, missed her boat, barreled up the hill and over the side and totaled his car! My dad was over there tonight and said the kid is fine. WOW!
Today I went to the pet store and got one of those couplers that you can attach to two dogs and use one leash. I was showing it off to the hubby and had it connecting Chloe and Zoey. Poor Chloe was getting dragged around by Zoey, so hubby said I should put Rosie and Zoey together. I hooked them up and took them outside. After a couple of minutes I looked down and realized that I had Chloe on one leash, Zoey on the other and an empty harness! YIKES I looked around..where the heck did Rosie go. She was about 15 feet away having the time of her life. I called her and nope, not coming back. I dragged the other two back into the house, yelling "cookie", "treat", anything I could think of BLAH!! I ran into the house, past hubby and said I lost a dog. I grabbed the entire container of sugar cookies and ran back outside. That little bugger would NOT come to me. We live on a main road, a corner, a busy corner. She was about 2 steps from me on the deck and I put the box of cookies down, open and had little pieces scattered on the deck, she finally got about a foot from me and I grabbed her by her head. I am now thinking of duck taping her harness on her. I thought I was so smart with this set-up for our walk on Saturday. Now, I'm worried. I guess I may just have to hook Zoey and Chloe back and deal with Rosie ALONE.
