Fiorella took Sonia up the north driveway for her morning walk, holding the leash tightly and staying alert for deer since Doggie's bolted the leash twice already this week. Spotted a pedestrian walking up from the dip at the south edge of the property and turned around before Sonia saw him, walking her back down the north drive again and going up the south drive. No deer around, pedestrian was out of sight--whew! Went around the road to the mouth of the north driveway, heading towards the house, and spotted a deer posed ten feet inside the park beside the drive. Turned Sonia around again and walked her up the north drive to the street, crossed to the south driveway and got her back to the house without incident.
And Husband wonders why Fio always carries extra treats.
