For some unknown reason, Layla realized that Annie and Edlal were there to help. The poodle didn’t growl or try to bite and it allowed Annie to touch her. Isn’t this amazing?
15. Putting On A Leash
Annie waited for Layla to feel comfortable around her and she slowly put a leash around her neck. Annie needed to make sure that Layla doesn’t run into the oncoming traffic and that’s what the leash was for.
