I really hate seeing wandering dogs..
So, Cali and I were on our usual walk today when we spotted a dog way up the road. He looked like a pitbull/lab mix, but either way, he ran up to us. I picked Cali up (just because the last two larger dogs she met, tried jumping all over her while she was in my arms).. but he was super friendly and was calm, so I let them say hi for a brief moment before we continued on our way and met up with my neighbor's shih-tzu.
However, he caught up again with us and was trotting along on the middle of the road. I basically had a heart attack as I saw a transport farther up on the road as I tried to lure him onto the sidewalk. Thankfully, he came over.. but after the truck passed, he went back onto the road and ran down it, through the intersection and down another sidewalk. All I could think was, "please let that dog get home safely."
I just wish people would keep their dogs from wandering, for their own safety.
