Sometimes Dudley has a free choice day - he gets to choose the trails we ride. This particular day, he chose to come back down our home canyon, and halfway down, since he never forgets the location of a food source, he chose to detour past Connie's house. Connie wasn't home, but he didn't know that. What he DID know, is that when Connie IS home, if he waits long enough, (and if I call to her to come out), she will come outside bearing horse treats.
The Dude walked up to her house, and waited for her to come out.
He stood there and looked around and waited, and waited…
And when she didn't come outside, he walked up to her porch and waited…
and when she didn't come outside, he walked up to the windows and checked to see if he could see her inside.
He finally realized she wasn't home, so, disappointed, he ambled on homeward.
Don't worry, he got plenty of treats from me to ease his disappointment!
