The scene: A lovely Wednesday evening at home.
Starring: Hailey and the Lady
Scene opens: Lady opens the door to let Phod out. Lee manages to sneak out and takes off into the woods behind the house.
|I am sure these are all lies|
Both are sinking. At times, the Lady sinks into snow that is over her knees (about every 4th step). It is a slow chase and they likely both look ridiculous. Lady regrets the decision to not put snowshoes on. This would have made it easier.
Lady is yelling, swearing, asking nicely, pleading with Lee to stop and come back. At times she is considering going home and just waiting for Lee to come home. Then she worries it could be hours.
Lee is smelling the deer tracks, never once looking back, never once leaves the yard.
Finally, at the top of the hill, out of breath, while Lee is eating deer poop, Lady reaches her and puts her leash on.
For the first time, Lee acknowledges Lady. She looks surprised to see her.
Tired of sinking, Lady crawls across the yard back to the house.
Lee spends some time in the crate as Lady needs a few minutes to compose herself.
