The French Way

"Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly.
Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything
that makes you smile."

Mark Twain

The World According to Bella
On The Run
Mrs. S is no match for my sturdy 79 lbs.  She is a wimp! We were taking our usual morning walk down the road when I spy a fox.  I want to catch that fox but I am on a leash. With a sudden burst of energy I lunge toward the woods.  Mrs. S is trying her best to rein me in.  But my speed and strength were simply too much for her. Despite the fact she is hanging onto the leash and screaming "Stop, stop!"  I am towing/dragging her along. Finally in desperation or plain defeat she lets go.  And I am off and running to the woods with my leash dangling behind. 
But my impressive speed is not quite good enough. That fox just couldn't be caught. Sadly, I came back empty pawed to the road. Mrs. S seems relived.  As for me, I am just disappointed. That fox was oh, so close.     
Love, Bella
