Okay, so you have to picture this.
Ren – 9 years old; rescued from a hoarder; currently wearing a cast from her stifle to the bottom of her paw -- is one of those unusual Basenjis that you can trust off-leash. Yesterday I was out in an unfenced area of our property with her and Tie -- 17 year old Australian Shepherd -- when I noticed Tie and Ren heading down the driveway. They got to the road, turned left and were walking south against the sunset.
Where were they going?
"Get over here!" I yelled (actually my husband did, his voice is louder) and they obediently came back. But now my mind has a snapshot of Mutt and Jeff, a very old medium sized dog and a small dog wearing a cast, apparently leaving home to find some sort of adventure. Goofs!
