Normally when Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle comes across another canine in our walks around our Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood, she goes at least a little off the center stripe.
But not when the old dog above crossed our path.
Or didn’t bother to get in our way, rather.
And I don’t know if it’s an old dog. But its docile nature kept it up on its own driveway. Uninterested in our doings. And Ellie B, in turn, didn’t bat an eye. Maybe they traded an unbarked message to each other.
In any case, it sure was nice not to have to yank my leashed beloved rescue mutt more quickly down the street.
Do you think dogs can read each others’ intentions from afar? Do you think another day, this dog above might come charging down the driveway to greet Ellie B? Can you or I teach an old dog new tricks?
