We went for our walk later in the day and walked along a route we haven't taken for a long time. That's to make the walk longer. Anyway, we were coming out of a quiet street, ready to walk along the busy street. When we heard some barking. There were two dogs sitting with their humans way across the street. They didn't have leads.
Suddenly, they rushed out towards us. Even their humans calling them made no difference. They ran onto the road just as two cars were coming in opposite directions. Of course, one of them got skittled. We could hear the loud thud and saw the dog rolling over on the road. How the other was missed is anyone's guess.
Luckily, the one that was hit, got up and ran back to the family. Hopefully, s/he wasn't too badly injured. The woman who hit the dog stopped. She was very upset. Everyone was upset. All because the dogs weren't on leads. No matter how well-mannered we are, you just don't know what we'll do. I mean, when Bella and I see a cat, THAT's ALL we see.
Just be sure you have your leads on, guys.
