But the dog wasn't moving. He just stood there staring at her. She turned and dropped the leash, heading off for a bit. It was one of those retractable leashes, so it began sliding toward the dog and making a loud noise across the sidewalk. The dog didn't budge.
I get to the mail, check some things, and began heading back. As I did, the woman was returning to her dog.
She then called out, "Was it worth it?!" And the dog started wagging his tail.
