Here is another rant about dogs. I really hate dog owners who do not leash their dogs. As I was halfway through my run, I passed a house and people were coming out. Adults and kids. They also brought their dog with them. This was a little yapper of a dog, but when it saw me running, it had its ears back and teeth showing. I am lucky I saw it in time. I slowed down and started to walk. It started to follow me.
Finally after a few tense moments, the dog ran away. I saw it running into the street and it almost was run over. Then, the little dog chased the car. I only thought that happened in the movies. I had to walk for a few minutes and I finished my run. I really wanted to confront the people, but I also wanted to get back into my run. I was feeling good.
I am thinking about getting some mace, but I need to check the local laws first. How do you handle poor dog owners and yappy dogs when you are out running?
