Run Dog Run
A dog ran past us today, while we were walking by the sea. Panting behind came a young man who stopped ahead of us and called "Stop,Stop!" The dog ran even faster and was soon out of sight. He explained that he was walking his parents' dog and it was not trained. Every time he ran after it or got near it ran on again. He said it was friendly and if we came across it would we please hold onto it until he could get the collar and lead back on.
we finally got near to where it was. The dog was enjoying meeting other dogs but no one was able to hold it. As soon as the yong man came up, it ran on again.
It stopped to get patted by another young man and I came up and crouched down to tickle its head and hide the approach of the walker. He finally got the collar and lead on.
The photo is not of the actual dog but it is very like.
