|Mr eager beaver bragging about the fun he had!|
Twice in the three weeks before he became ill, Power slipped away and ran free for a few minutes! I was beside myself, and the first time he was going too close to a state highway, and I was terrified. It happened like this... I had his leash tied to my lawn chair and we were sitting in the shade of my motorhome, visiting with a neighbor and working on my quilt.
Somehow he realized that the knot on his leash had loosened then he sneaked away about three feet, and TOOK OFF! He had so much fun! If it hadn't been so dangerous I would have enjoyed watching him have fun! I know that chasing him is counter productive but felt that I could not ignore his direction and speed, so off I went in my limping fashion, and eventually he allowed me to catch up with him after he went through a ravine twice, and hundreds of yards along the highway.
I have realized that a knot is not sufficient, and I must get a carabiner or some such clip to be more secure.
