Lilith in Love

I take Lilith out for a last walk (pee break) at 8 or 9 p.m. We often end up walking with Jack, an orange part Besenji with close set eyes and a curly tail. Often the walks turn into extended wrestling matches. Lilith especially likes to bite Jack's ears. Last night I took her out a bit early and we did our usual one circle around the parking area. But she wouldn't come in. So we did another, and then another. She stopped a couple times near Jack's gate and stared in its direction. She kept stopping to listen (Jack has a distinctive collar/tag sound). Finally, I barged through Jack's gate and called out to his people: "Lilith won't go home unless she sees Jack." His Phoebe brought him out, whereupon Lilith and Jack ignored each other and we finally walked home.
