I’ve always known that dogs should travel in crates or seatbelt harnesses while in the car, but there’s a big difference between knowing and doing. From now on we will be DOING!
Yesterday I was stepping out of my car at Ridgetop when Wally bolted thru the door and proceeded to play zoomies in the parking lot. This would have been simply annoying except a Ford Ranger was driving by. In true Border fashion Wally didn’t even notice the death machine and just kept running around right in front of it. He literally ran circles right in front of the thing, damn dog. His enthusiasm is wonderful but not in that moment!
Fortunately the guy saw him and stopped while I claimed my wayward puppy. And to add insult to injury the whole thing happened right in front of Wayne. Talk about embarrassing!
From now on Wally will travel in his crate. That was WAY too close for comfort!
