Out walking this afternoon…strolling along, trying to get the ten mins that the Fitbit algorithm needs to begin awarding me the highest level of activity (as I understand it), and a car with the window down pulls over…fellow says, seen two dogs on the loose? Nope. Keep going.
Ten–twelve minutes later I encounter a woman carrying leashes that have no dogs attached. Sorry, I say, I just told the man in the car, nope, haven’t seen them.
Her, I remembered. For her orange top. I’d seen her with the two dogs (small), at the beginning of my walk. I heard her calling the missing mutts as I continued.
