Every once in awhile nice, unexpected things happen.
|Us: Bella, Roxy and Daisy|
We often see the same cars pass us, or people walking, or in their gardens. Most of the time, the humans just give a friendly nod or wave. We, of course, are
more interested in other things.
All too often, we meet dogs that have escaped from their yards...or been abandoned...or whatever.
Invariably, they are huge intact males that are called pig dogs. Pig dogs are crosses of Bull Arabs, Wolfhounds, Danes, Bull Terriers....anything that might make a dog big and want to hunt feral pigs.
So far, we haven't had any problems. Most dogs off leads or not in their own territory might look at us and then move off. Some race over ready to attack and see we're girls, so they stop. SHE usually makes us stop and then talks to the dogs and they wag their tails. But SHE is wary every time we meet one.
This morning as we were heading home, SHE waved to a neighbour who lives down the street as he went off to work. We only know him to wave at and would never be able to recognise him on the street. We noticed he turned his truck around and came back down the street. Then we saw a huge dog across the road.
He'd come back to ensure that we would be okay. This has happened a few times to us, people who see us every day and stop, do U-turns, or invite us into their houses....strangers who help when they see a potentially dangerous situation.
Always makes us feel good.
The dog turned out to be the usual boof head who we hope has found his way home.
Roxy did not help the situation as she was so excited at seeing a potential playmate. We thought she'd learned something from her last encounter.
Hope something nice happens for you this weekend.
