We are travelling to Stilbaai with two of our dogs. My Bella, who does not believe that she is a dog anyway and Fiela, Zander’s shadow and soulmate.
Bella never ever goes far from me. I don’t have to check up on her or worry about her. She is always there.
However, other dogs one would assume would run away or just take off when they are off the leash. Yet, it is not the truth. Fiela is the same as Bella. She just wants to be near Zander.
I think that she would only ever run away if she was terribly scared or if she didn’t know where Zander was.
I believe that most dogs are like that. They don’t want to run away. They want to be with their humans. They are wired that way.
I wish all people would realize that. That dogs are meant to be with humans. That they are caring. Loving. Loyal. That they are meant to be loved.
Thank goodness they are both well-behaved in the car as well. Stilbaai is 1 219 km from home. They do just fine.
