Unknown to the danger I was feeling, Lovie loped back toward me and I quickly latched on her leash.  I knew she hated to be leashed, but I didn’t need her to be running from me now.  Not at the height of my nerves.  I tried to casually wave at the stranger in an effort to be cordial when in reality my stomach was flipping.  I turned back toward the parking lot and tried to remember how long Lovie and I had been walking.  Had it been twenty minutes?  An hour?  I cursed myself for being in this position.  Again.
