This actually happened last week, but since I neglected to post last Friday, here it is!
Our upstairs neighbor has two chihuahuas: one barks her little head off every time we step outside, while the other is a sweetheart who used to run up to my car whenever he saw me pull in (he has quit doing it since I got my new car – I don’t think he attributes it to me yet).
We try to avoid letting Sammie out while the ‘babies’ are outside because we don’t want to risk a run-in. Even though Sammie is super friendly, she’s so much bigger than they are and I would hate for her to hurt them on accident. Well, last week – everybody met.
I was headed out to my car with Sammie to go somewhere when she RUSHED up the stairs and into the neighbor’s yard. At that moment, I heard little tiny barks and realized the little ones were out. I hurried behind her so I could grab her, but as I reached the top step, I saw the little male chasing Sammie out of his yard and into our driveway! I don’t think Sammie thought of it as a game, either, because as soon as I opened the car door, she was inside. I started the car and then bent down low so I could praise the brave little warrior for such a heroic deed. Luckily, his owner thought it just as hilarious as I did!
