The man wears a red plaid jacket and a wool baseball cap. He walks a black cattle dog who pulls hard on his leash. They pass by her house every day at 5:08 p.m.
She knows he lives on the other side of the block because she saw him there once with a different dog. The current dog is the third one since she started noticing.
One day, she yells out the window. “Hello! I like your dog!” His shoulders shift in acknowledgement then he walks on.
She decides to meet him with her dog, but they pass without sniffing.
