Get Out of the Road Dog! by barnsis

Currently unavailable for purchase

I was driving west on highway 72 going to Arcadia Missouri when this dog just walked across the road and stopped in the lane in front of me! He looked at me as if to say “You would not dare!” I had slowed to almost a crawl before he decided to let me pass and slowly ambled on across the road.

    that’s one brave dog… or he has a death wish…. thanks for stopping… would have hated for the story to end the other way! Phantastik shot. b

  • He just stopped and looked at me like don’t you dare. and of course I would not have anyway.

    We always wondered where that darn dog went!!!! Hope it was okay!

  • I guess it is, last I saw in my rear view mirror he was going into the grass on the shoulder of the road.

    One would expect that behaviour from a terrier, not a larger dog! Love the colours in the trees.

  • This was just a few weeks ago, he didn’t seem to be concerned.

    Okay….I’d have been the one to pull over, coax him to me and read his tags….and then take him home. but then I always think of that movie where the two dogs and cat found their way home across the country. So maybe he was on a mission….poor baby!

  • As rural as it looks here he was only about a mile from town and there were several houses withing sight so he was probably not far from home.

    Was this taken while driving? Or did you stop for a change? LOL! Great shot!

  • No I was driving but slowing since he was not going to move, he did before i came to a complete stop however so I am guilty as charged

    This is really beautiful Byron! I hope the dog is doing well, he doesnt seem to be afraid of cars!

  • Thank you, no he was not the least bit afraid, almost daring
