Do some people have to literally leap out the way of them in such a dramatic fashion! Sandy is still very small, I took her for a short walk along the river wall and then into town. I walked past one lady and Sandy was nowhere near her (plus I had her under control) an this lady jumped back as if Sandy had attacked her! I also tied Sandy up outside nursery whilst I picked my son up the other day, way out the way of passer by's or people going in/out of the nursery and one woman was telling her child to keep far away from the nasty dog is it will bite you! I felt more sorry for the child being brought up to hate dogs rather than the fear or dislike that the mum had.
