I'm dripping in sweat typing this and have just made myself look like even more of an idiot than I already have around the neighborhood, I had let Katalin out into the yard for some play and potty break and she leapt a 4 foot gate onto the sidewalk, zipped around into next doors yard - bounded out of there onto the road - got caught up with a passerby's dog - zipped around his dog to a open yard, flew by me and my hand with treats and chased the passerby and dog as they were about to walk off - I caught her on the sidewalk finally, leashed her up and brought her indoors. *phew* We need a new gate, we need to work WAY more on impulse control/self control and coming - this is tough for a breed that likes to wander mind you. Yet another *ARGH* moment in the life of the owner of a (very wild) puppy. Venting done, sweat drying, feeling of relief kicking in as feeling of wanting to bang my head against the wall dissipates. Please proceed to laugh at me.
