I went over to braid up Hyia's hair and the dogs had gotten muddy playing in the back yard.it is bath day so i said i would take Shaffer home with me and return him later. I got out to the car and he backed out of the collar. He ran a few yards away and turned but wouldn't come when he was called. I tried everything from taking Vic and Mary out and then back in to trying to encourage him to follow me to mom's door. He wasn't about to do either. If i tried to approach..he ran further so i was in and out of the car trying one thing after another. I did discover that when the car moved..he followed it so i went with what was working. I drove around the block and he chased the car. After the first time around i stopped in the drive took Vic and mary out..and that dang Shaffer headed up the hill instead of through the gate. Soooo everybody back in the car and this time i went around the block three times at 25 miles an hour..a tired shaffer will be much easier to catch and a thirsty Shaff might be more agreeable to going home..it worked. After running aroung the block 4 times he was pooped..and i was able to get my hand on his scruff. He is laying beside me now..and we will be getting in the tub after i recovery. Good grief the dogs are making me nuts.
