Yesterday,I was kind of occupied with other stuff to write about something that had growlmy's and my hearts in our mouths.
We were just coming over the bridge before the last 1/4 mile of our walk...and growlmy and I were watching a couple of boys on their bikes. We were thinking they were going down to the creek because that is what boys like to do...
There seemed nothing out of the ordinary.
Then there was this very loud HOOOONK!!
Made all of us jump! What on earth was that for?
Then we saw that it was a dude riding a motorcycle, and he was gesturing angrily behind him. His bike was too loud to hear what he was trying to yell at us.
Then...there was a big chocolate lab running loose, crossing the highway! OMD!
He had almost gotten hit! No collar, no anything...but the boys seemed to know who he was and where he came from. If we had seen him before he tried to cross, we could have prevented that near tragedy. Growlmy would have tried to corral him with the extra leash she always carries, (in case the extendable one breaks, as it did once upon a time...), and then she would have taken him to where the boys directed...Well, they said they would.
Phew! That was too close for comfort! He must have 'escaped' from his den!...and decided to take himself for a stroll, or go exploring! Not a good idea in that part of our village.
Later, growlmy had to drive in that same area, but she did not see anything...thankfully.
OMD!! Tu, TU close!! I hope him r ok an' r back at hims home!!
Yeah, those boys were shocked, too, and said they were surprised that he was on the loose...
Glad he was ok and you guys did not have to witness a tragedy!
Mom saw a dog get hit when she was in her early 20s. It is still a very sad event she carries in her heart.
Hope that dog is back at home and ok now!
thank goodness he was not hit by a car...you guys really see a lot of action on your walks. I hope that the lab made it home safely.
Another eventful day in the life of Freckles! OMD you and growlmy see some action. Here in my rural area we have big chocolate/black labs running free, and its a problem to us as none have any sense at all. Thank goodness it seems the one you saw must have got home.
