Some great tips about your loose dog, HERE. It seems instinctual to chase after them. We discovered that it just made Gwennie want to run more.
What to do if a dog gets loose:
- Stop, drop and lie down - It might sound silly, but dogs find the behavior odd. When you don’t give chase and instead lie down and lie still, a dog will get curious and will often come back to see if you are okay or to see what you are doing.
- Stop, drop, and curl into a ball – This is also a curious behavior for a dog. Because you are not moving and your hands are closely wrapped around your head, they see you as less of a threat and will come to check you out. This gives them a chance to sniff you and realize it’s you, their owner, or to allow you to pet them and grab their collar.

I went to a Vintage Junk show at the Convention Center in Joplin, It was interesting to see what people are designing out of literally Junk....there were a few antique dealers there as well. I was looking for a wooden ladder and the best one was being hauled off by another customer, the one that was left was the right size but too rough and I didn't want to do that much sanding.. There was also a guy who would make you a burlap pillow and letter anything you wanted on it. They were very nice but I am not the burlap pillow type. Lots of jewelry makers and such and I did not buy a thing, except the best Cheeseburger, all the food looked delicious and homemade.
I am still walking every day except for Thursday this week. I do the first mile quite well but start pooping out the second. Thursday I woke up so tired. So I made my coffee and tried to get ready but I listen to the voices that said don't go....so I didn't. I am such a baby.
