While Walking the Dogs Yesterday …

Jake had enough walking yesterday.

A pleasant evening walk was nearly ruined yesterday, but Invisible Fence kept a disaster from happening.

A spaniel and a beagle live a few houses down. They usually play in their backyard, but the spaniel knows how to sneak into the front yard then bark his head off at potential intruders. The beagle merrily joins in. How that beagle manages not to say a word while the spaniel stalks is a mystery to me.

As Jake, Windy, Max, my husband and I strolled down the sidewalk, Jake sauntered off to the grass near the curb to poop. So far so good.

I get out the bag. Before Jake finishes the spaniel comes roaring around from the back and explodes. Max and Windy lose it. Jake freezes, and I start yelling. The beagle howls. My husband drags Max and Windy away, and Jake decides he better stop his business. I grab his leftovers and we leave.

The neighbors’ Invisible Fence kept the spaniel and beagle in their yard while we were on the sidewalk. Would the dogs have attacked our dogs? I don’t know, but I am glad we didn’t have to find out.

Jake prefers a quiet bathroom experience.


About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.
