DON'T DO THIS !! ALMOST LOST BISCUIT!!
I cannot believe my own stupidity. Today I was unloading each dog at the groomer's separately. Heath was still in the car and Biscuit was on his leash & harness w/me. As we got to the door of the groomer's (which he loves) I took off Biscuit's harness & opened the door for him to enter.
Now Biscuit is a very very obedient, compliant dog. Well, instead of going inside, he took off at a full run AWAY from me, into this busy parking lot that abuts a busy 4 lane road. I couldn't believe it! And I have this injured leg and couldn't chase him! No one was nearby to help.
I called & took a step in his direction and he ran farther! TOWARD THE BUSY ROAD!! He had a really rebellious look in his eye . I have only seen that look when he was a puppy. So I used reverse psychology and headed toward my SUV and said casually, let's go in the car. He was FAR away by then, but turned around and ran happily toward me. Thank goodness, and he jumped in my arms.
This story could have easily had a tragic ending. Don't take anything for granted with these dogs, cause they are DOGS.
HAV A GREAT DAY ! ~~AMY & BISCUIT~~
and HEATH-Y, TOO !
