so in the very early morning (630ish) when nobody is usually up i take the dog out front to use the bathroom and usually don't put her on the leash at that time of day because there's almost always nobody out.
well one of my neighbors who i never speak to had her garage open and was loading up her car or something. when lucy got done going to the bathroom i called her to come inside but she started going over to the neighbor who she could hear talking in her garage. lucy usually listens good but she's very friendly so thats the one exception, and in the 2 weeks ive had her i havent had an issue with her not listening because she's been on the leash or nobody has been outside.
well i chased after her, it was only like 3 houses down, and the lady was like "oh! oh!" as lucy entered her garage. i said "i'm sorry! she's friendly, she won't hurt you." as i ran up to get her. the lady was like "yeah" and jumped in her car, shutting the door. im thinking, are you kidding me lady? i got the dog, picked her up (because she's small, a PUPPY) and walked home with her. needless to say i will always put her on the leash from now on. i know i was in the wrong too, i just think the lady's reaction was stupid and unnecessary. i could understand if lucy was a fully grown 80 pound dog...

What if she has been attacked by a dog before. It doesn't matter that yours is a puppy. Your dog running up to her could have caused those bad memories to come back. My son does this every time we go outside and he sees a dog. He runs to the car and won't come out until the dog has gone.
