My dog is a quirky bitch, Part II
I took her out for her late night pee walk. She got very interested in a cat that ran across the road and up the walkway near someone's house. Usually she ignores them, but not this time. She didn't chase, but she tried to follow it. I stopped her.
The cat just sat there, tail twitching, about 10 feet away from her.
Dahlia just stood there, tail slowing wagging.
I finally said "Go get it!"
And Dahlia rushed forward a few feet and play bowed.
To a cat.
A feral cat.
A cat which then ran away because "OMG SCARY BIG DOG IS RUNNING AT ME!!!!"
Yeah it didn't work so well and Dahlia was pretty clearly bewildered. But then I called her to me and we headed home.
I don't quite get why she rarely play bows to dogs, but has offered them to horses (does she think they're gigantic dogs?) and cats. What a quirky bitch my dog is!.
