|LADY ON A GREAT DAY...|
She'd stop and do it again. After a moment, I started playing with her. I'd stamp my foot, like I was going to chase her, and she'd start running in circles.
She probably ran and played like that for 45 seconds. Then she went back to being a boring, 13-year-old dog.
But I was happy to see the outburst for a few minutes. The nice thing is that she didn't seem winded when she started sniffing the fence again.
A bunch of dog owners went into the small-dog side because of work being done to the fence on the big-dog side. When the workers left, everyone else went to the big-dog side. So we were alone again.
Note: Lady passed on Sept. 17, 2016.
