Malone is feeling right as rain. Long since stopped the pain meds and he is totally back to normal now. Yesterday my neighbors old fat white dog was in our yard. I did not see her. Apparently she was in the back. She does not like Malone. She growls at him and lunges at him. Malone spotted her this time. I spotted her VERY soon after he did. Before I could call him back, he BOLTED towards her. Nigredo and I bolted after him. He got near her, she noticed him and lunged at him... hackles raised. He easily darted out of the way. He did it again, charged back towards her, she LUNGES, and he easily jetted out of the way. I am calling him all this time BTW. He is ignoring me. He does it again and again. Charges towards her, and when she LUNGES, he quickly jets the other direction and far out of reach. This is an extremely fun GAME to Malone. The white dog cannot get anywhere near him despite her efforts. She is MUCH too old and slow. She gives up after a while and just stands there and Malone just has zoomies back and forth to her. I cannot call him back and I definitely cannot catch him. She is not aggressive but she is not friendly. She growls at us and retreats if we get close. She is just standing there with all her hackles raised while a puppy taunts her. My goal is to get her to return home, and then I can call back Malone. While she is on our property, he was totally ignoring me. Don't want to get too close this time because she is agitated. So I make some shooing hand motions.... Go home girl. Doesn't work. I got my 4 foot pond net and extended it towards her gently... Go home girl. She turns and begins to slowly go home. Nigredo had heard me frantically calling Malone and he had come back to the porch already. As the white dog leaves and enters her property... I am finally able to call back Malone. He rushes to the porch, super happy and unharmed. Had the white dog been able to catch him... He likely would have been toast. She was quite angry, she is twice his size, and she is an American Bulldog mix. I don't think Malone truly perceived any danger at all. Ah.... PUPPIES.
