Wild Animal (The Simple Dog Goes for a Joy Ride) My simple-minded dog recently went on an unplanned adventure. Because the simple dog is so very simple, her adventure was alarming and horrible for everyone involved. Even in her normal, familiar environment, the simple dog exists in a state of almost constant confusion. She also appears to have very little control over what she is doing or why she is doing it. For example, the other day, she was standing in the middle of the room just staring vacantly. But instead of completing a few rotations and then lying down like a normal dog, she got stuck in the repetitive motion and couldn't stop turning slowly in place. She is definitely not the type of animal that would thrive in the wild. Unfortunately, she managed to escape one day while we were out walking, and she very nearly became a wild animal. In the park where we were walking, there is a large horse statue. I chased her all the way across the park and into an adjacent neighborhood. She had forgotten who I was.
