That Stupid Dog

That is always bothering my dog, bit me.
And drew blood.
The four legged devil was out; I walked past him, and he and another dog ran off to play. Then he came up from behind and bit my leg.

I am so angry.

I have never wanted to see a dog put down before, but this one is a definite menace.

I was actually walking home from accompanying a friend back to her house because of another loose dog.

Dh is going to talk to someone about it tomorrow.

I am so angry; I wasn't near this dogs property, I didn't have my dog with me, I wasn't facing him, I didn't run away: he just ran up from behind and bit me.

You need to get a decent walking stick. Heck, a shortened broom handle works just fine. You've got at least one known menace running loose and you have every right to protect yourself.

I'm a dog lover and about the last thing I want to do in the world is beat a dog but I will do it in a heartbeat to avoid being bitten. One of the nearby neighborhood's dogs gets loose frequently. Big chow mix, very bad attitude. He went after my dogs (Kota and Nine-eye) last week. One stick treatment has cured him of coming into our neighborhood.

Ooh - just reread that. 'Stick treatment' sounds so...Goebbels. Replace that with one whack with a stick (window squeegee handle to be precise).

I hope you are ok, that dog could have rabbi's!

If that dog is big, I wouldn't hit it with a stick, use that on the owner if that happens again!

My mom thinks you should sue, because she says you have a winning case!

Get a big water pistol. Fill same with water. Go forth armed, and spray dog full face next time he is nasty. The shock of cold water on the face will stop him, and it may remain as a lesson.

This dog is definately a menace. Most dogs -- even if they smell fear and victory -- will bark at you and posture to see how you react. You're a human, afterall. But this dog came up from behind and bit you?! That's not a dog, it's a natural disaster.
