While Sable and I were taking our morning walk, about a block or so ahead of us we saw a small dog running ahead of someone. We weren't sure if the dog was on an extended leash so we stopped at the corner. Sure enough the little dog was loose and giving its owner a merry little chase, as soon as the man was close the little dog ran away.
I called to the man and asked if the dog was friendly and he replied, yes. So I called to the runaway to come and visit Sable. The little miniature black poodle trotted over and immediately started the standard dog sniff greeting. Sable was a good girl and stood still while she was "inspected" and I was able to grab the poodle's collar. The little poodle was introduced as Oreo and her owner was very grateful.
I praised Sable for being such a good girl as we continued on our walk, happy in knowing we had done a good deed.
