Why would my very well behaved 8 year old dog suddenly lose all recall and behave like a hooligan?

He normally has perfect recall. Just now he came out of the front door while I was sorting the bins. Usually no problem if he does this. He saw another dog over the road on a lead, ran to it and wouldn’t come back. When he did decide to leave it alone, he ran to a neighbours house and tore madly around their garden. Completely ignoring me.
This has never happened before! I literally have no idea what to do!

Rather odd! Is it possible the other dog was in season?

However, if it doesn't happen again I'd be tempted to write it off as a one off moment of madness for DDog.

Never shown interest in a lady dog in his life! Or any dog at all really! Tennis balls only.
I’ll take him for a high attention/ recall focussed walk tomorrow. Usually bomb proof!
Strange.
