Last week when my wife arrived home with our daughter from dance class she had a startling encounter in the drive way. We live in a cul-de-sak that is fairly dark and after pulling her car up the drive and starting to get out she saw a dark shape move which startled her. Then she felt a wet tongue on her arm and she screamed before she realized it was labrador retriever. In relating this story to me she said the dog must have been someone’s pet because when she screamed she scared the dog as much as he scared her and he hightailed it out of there.
