LETTER: Patient drivers wait for puppy

When running with my nine month old puppy (that is still in the training stage) the leash slipped out of my hand...

I’d like to thank all the patient drivers that were on Whatcom Road last Sunday morning, (Aug. 18). When running with my nine month old puppy (that is still in the training stage) the leash slipped out of my hand and she took the opportunity to investigate the two lane road for what felt like forever.

There were many patient drivers that stopped and waited while I tried to coax my puppy back to me; she evidently thought it was a fun game.

Thank you to everyone that waited patiently while I tried to put an end to my very frustrating and very embarrassing situation. I can only imagine how awful I would have felt if drivers started to honk and get impatient!

Thank you!
