What the hell is wrong with people?
If you live in the suburbs — as we do — or the city, your dog shouldn’t be out off-leash. They can be off-leash in the yard when the gate is closed and you know they can’t jump the gate. They can be off-leash at an off-leash dog park. Otherwise, the dog needs to be on a leash when outdoors.
Otherwise, you’re endangering your dog’s life and the lives of other dogs and other people. You might as well just give a six-year-old a loaded gun.
Fortunately, Julie’s OK and so is Minnie.
