Here's the thing...AC never showed. I was shocked; my in-laws were not. Apparently, that's the norm around here. So...guess I won't be counting on them in future, huh?
I do feel for the guy, in a way. It's not like he was walking the dog down my street without a collar or leash. The dog was in his car. He probably did not even consider the possibility that his dog might leave the safety of the car. But I would NEVER let my dog out my door, let alone off the property, without her collar and tags, and I bet he won't now, either.
They call that "impact learning".
