Run Ragged

None of the clues worked out. I ended up walking miles from my destination, than rode atop a bus into a flood zone. I climbed a retaining wall, ignored a mountain lion floating by on a broken door. Was forced to half-drowned a nasty dog by the snout to induce him to be more friendly; --which turned out to be foreshadowing... Finally reached hilly land; an upscale neighborhood too! Very late; or rather early AM. Several toughs ambling across the street; one of whom wrestles a little dog from its owner, a petite Asian lady. I crossed the upscale intersection and hurried to a mansion near the beach which looked familiar. I knocked and several people with wine glasses appeared. I asked, “Is anyone here sober?” As I wanted them to summon police; I was too exhausted to chase dog-nappers.
