Tell me something, what would you do if an off leash dog attacks your dog?
BOTH HARLEY AND JAXSON –
are well known in our neighborhood because we walk them so much…
Not often, but I have wondered – what I would do if an off leash, unaccompanied, angry canine approached me while on a walk.
Here I am – in relatively good health, but as a baby boomer I’m way pass my prime. When I’m walking the Boys, I’ve got a total of 135 lbs on two leashes tethered to my waist. So what would I do?
TRUE STORY –
The other day Doodle Dad took the Boys to our community lake and park. It’s only a few blocks away from the house and often they go there to play ball.
Less than two blocks from the house, Lee noticed a dog emerge from the backyard. He was a little taller than Harley, but seemed to have more weight on him than Jaxson. #heavyweight
At first he stood his ground at the top of his yard, so Lee continued to walk. Suddenly he started charging towards them. Lee wasn’t armed with anything to protect himself. All he had in his hands were poop bags, a “chuck-it” ball and the plastic stick it comes with.
The angry dog gained momentum as his speed increased coming down the driveway. It was obvious this dog wasn’t coming to say hello, nor did he want to play.
Making a split second decision, Doodle Dad stepped off the curb trying to give additional distance between himself, the Boys and the angry dog.
THE DOG KEPT COMING –
And that’s when Lee saw the truck. He walked in front of the truck with his arm extended out like a school crossing guard, commanding the truck to stop…
