Picture of the Day
July 18, 2019

About a week ago, Miso
barely eluded a dog that
had escaped a neighbor's
yard and was trying to
chomp her. She got away
without injury but since
then she's been afraid
to go outside, which is
a loss for the neighbor-
hood because she is
quite the beloved
sidewalk fixture in
front of our building.
Today, Sarah and I
escorted her to the
side yard where she
eventually relaxed enough
to chase down a passerby
and solicit some petting.
It's sad to see her cowed
and fearful but I'm hoping
she'll get over it with some
more gentle encouragement.
