Here' what I did yesterday: The sweet little new girl, Brownie the MiniPin, detoured from her return to the back door (she was THIS CLOSE!) to escape under the fence and chase a young doe all over the neighborhood. I went after her of course, and thought too late about bringing a leash with me. I didn't want to lose her a day after adopting her and I could still hear her tag jingling. The deer lost her and she was happy then to come running back to me. Unfortunately, I was now exhausted (bad feet, remember) a quarter mile from home with no leash, with a short, 35 pound dog that I couldn't lead by the collar or carry. Fortunately an old gentleman came out of his house to walk his little poof ball, and was kind enough to loan me a tie out. He then directed me through the yards back to my neighborhood so I didn't have to walk all the way around. Last night I was in agony with my feet, but they were usable again today with just moderate pain.
The fence gets fixed on Sunday and Miss MiniPin is in a harness and gets tied every time she goes out. Sometimes I wonder why I keep doing this!
