I held her till we got onto our street. When I put her down, she was either rushing to get home, or stopping, not wanting to move. It was as if she was in a panic, unsure whether staying still was safer, or rushing home for the familiar. When we finally got back, I tried bringing her in our backyard in case she needed to use the bathroom still (she typically holds it on walks). She peed shortly then ran over to me, in between my legs, frightened.
When she got into the house, she ran up to dad and curled up to him scared. Told my family what happened as for why she was acting that way. Over the next few days, she would cower whenever she heard a loud car drive by, even when she was inside! We had a hard time taking her out to do her business, we believed she was holding it in to delay it.
|She really loves sticks.|
In other news, another of our neighbors got a puppy. Faith no longer is the youngest in the neighborhood, and she seems to love him too! His name is Moe, a mix of basset hound and what we suspect to be dachshund. With the addition of Moe, Faith is now surrounded by Male dogs; Our other next door neighbor has a beagle named Freckles (seen below), and our neighbor in back has a large dog (don't recall the race...) named Yoshi. We've mused a big puppy party with the neighbors but a few problems come up with that. Freckles isn't neutered (and seems unlikely to be) and we don't want him humping her, so unless he gets fixed, they will only play with each other between the fence.

|Chilling against the fence.|
|Faith ignoring Freckles. Totally a "FOREVER ALONE" joke.|
A problem we've been having with Faith is her digging holes. Both Freckles and Yoshi keep digging under the fences trying to get to her, and Faith tries to imitate them. We can't scold Freckles or Yoshi, but have to keep scolding Faith; her digging not only gets her dirty, but she might slip into the other lawns or hurt herself/have them hurt themselves. The fence separating her from Freckles is a rusty old gardening fence.
Now when we first got Faith, Freckles had broken into our yard a few times by getting under the fence, thus why so many bricks and poles are put against it. He was actually respectful to her at that time, according to my dad. Probably because he realized she was just a baby then. If he were to break in now, there's no doubt in my mind he'd try to hump her. Besides that though, under the fence is kind of sharp, and would hate for either Freckles or Faith to get hurt.
As for Yoshi's side, well... We can't easily get over there if she were to escape in back.
