Here is a wonderful postscript to yesterday’s hike in a message I just got from Diane:
“Thank you so much for you and Barry’s kindness in hiking all the way back up to the Mesa and then even bringing the dogtrac to my door! You both generated yourselves a lot of positive karma yesterday!
“I want to tell you that having the dogtrac back and on Maggie today may have saved her life, if not saved her from serious injury.
“There was a very large coyote at the end of our run today, and Maggie took off full speed after it. She refused to come when called. The coyote was leading her off into the woods. I had to turn the control way up and put it on constant to get her attention.
“She did a u-turn and quickly returned to me. The coyote sat down and watched her return and then slowing walked into the woods.
“I haven’t had to use the dogtrac in months, but if I hadn’t had it today, I don’t think Maggie would have come back in time to prevent injury to herself.”
And here is their picture again:
