The other day while I was waiting for the bus, there was a black untrimmed poodle-ish dog running around near the Wendy's on Franklin Avenue in Belleville.
The pooch crossed the busy street at least twice. This little black dog sure seemed like one wrong move and this cute little pup would be on the wrong side of a fast moving car.
Which way is this dog heading?
The dog crossed busy Franklin Avenue. I watched as it stopped at each house sidewalk and took a few steps up, sniffed and stopped, seeming to say THIS ISN'T MY HOUSE, and head back to the sidewalk and started out again.
A good-hearted couple pulled over and tried to catch the dog. Then they left, and came back on the other side of the street to try again.
The last I saw them, I was on the bus and they were chasing the dog - which had no collar - down Berkeley Avenue.
