Success!   1 comment

My friend, Heather, and her three Scotties live 2 streets down. Thursday, Miss D and I stopped by Heather’s place at the end of our walk and asked if Nettie could come out to play. So Heather strapped on Nettie’s harness and leash and they joined us for the last few blocks of our walk.

Now this is something I would never have asked a year ago. And the last time we met up with Heather and her Scotties, we had to walk 10 steps behind them; Miss D was so excited. But Nettie is the calmest, most easy-going Scottie you would ever meet. When greeting Miss D, she instinctively lies down and moves slowly so as not to startle. There’s the occasional moments of forgetfulness, when Nettie jumps up on me or moves too suddenly. Miss D did still react when that happened but it wasn’t the knock-down drag-out fight this time and I was able to put some distance between the two dogs and calm Miss D down quickly.

But I say, “Success!” because Heather and I were talking the whole time. We didn’t have to yell over the barks of our dogs. For the most part, we were able to walk side-by-side, people on the inside, dogs on the outside. With the occasional stop for mutual sniffing. It was only a couple of blocks; maybe 5 minutes, 10 minutes tops. But it was wonderful.
