Vasco, an athletic dog that loves to run, on his own decided to hang back with me and my Isabella-girl, no doubt filling the job of protecting us. And I did feel safer with him near by, even though we barely knew each other.
So here we meet again on our way back. Everybody was so happy and easy going. I am amazed that Vasco took on this role of protector and only abandoned it to run after Eric after my Sumo-boy decided to give up his lead and hang back with us. Basically they switched roles. So sweet. I am so grateful my dogs get to have time off lead and are able to run and follow their noses. This makes for happiness for all.
