Noah's Adventure... and my exercise for the year!

I bought Noah a fabric harness b/c he's fat and the store-bought harnesses were chafing him. I took him for a walk yesterday for the first time in his new harness. Three hard pulls, the velcro on the harness gave, and off he went... down the street, through the woods, into the neighborhood that is behind ours, down that street... you get the picture... All the while I'm running behind him shouting "NOAH!!!...STOP!!!....POOPY!!...STOP!....PLEAS E STOP!... YOU'RE KILLING MOMMY!...NOOOAAH!" Finally my asthma kicked in (the yelling didn't help) and I sat down in someone's yard and started crying at my misfortune, which helped my breathing even less. I thought I had lost my dog for good b/c he is very skittish and I knew that he wouldn't let anyone catch him and that he would probably run into the street trying to get away from someone trying to catch him. We leave right next to I-65, which is a heavily travelled interstate. He also didn't have his collar on, and his ID tags are on his collar. As I sat there and cried, I felt this little wet nose nudge up between my armpit and there was Noah, licking off the tears. I sat in some stranger's yard for 5 minutes, catching my breath, holding my puppy, and crying until the old man who lived there came out to ask if I was okay. I looked at Noah and said "We're fine." That was the scariest moment of my entire life. I NEVER want to experience that again. Who knew a little fat dog could run so fast?

Awww, Jenny! He must've just thought you two were playing tag!

I'm glad he came back to you! I would've felt so bad if he was lost!!

Well, I don't think he thought it was a game... He had his tail in between his legs and when we got into the other neighborhood (a wealthy neighborhood, I might add) he started pooping while he was running down the street. It must have looked really funny, me running, calling for him, and jumping over little chihuahua turds as I ran...lol... When we got home, he hid under my bed for four and a half hours.

That must have been well scary for both of you.
Maybe he thought he was in trouble with you shouting and chasing and then when you stopped he realised you werent chasing and came back.
Hope you are both ok now
