    Yesterday morning i took lola up to a local field its not massive and has no fencing and sits on a main road

    I cant walk far so OH normally takes her but thought id take her instead in morning its just a walk round the field then in afternoon OH takes her for a long run

    Anyway yesterday morning we got to field and there 2 off lead yorkshire terriers lola wasnt bothered by them and they came bounding up to her she wasnt intrested just tired to keep on walking

    Owner shouted its ok there fine i was a bit miffed coz they wouldnt leave lola alone kept jumping around her and in her face i thought ahh they just want to play which was fine

    Then they started snarling and barking at her, owner at this point was by me but didnt say anything anyway she said oh she is only a baby isnt she and i said yes and went to walk off

    Then as i walked away lola still being as good as gold i turned and said sorry to her

    I got home and i thought to myself why the heck did i say sorry to her when it was her dogs barking and snarling at lola

    Think i panicked as i dont walk her often and dont spk to ppl (part of my illness) anyway now im like it took me a month to get back out and walk her now i feel like ive failed even tho it wasnt mine or lolas fault :(

    Wheres the failure?

    You walked your dog, let her greet 2 rowdy yorkies, she wasn't interested and you kept on walking...

    Sorry to hear you didn't have a great experience. I am also a compulsive apologiser, the other week I apologised to a man whose GSD ran up to us, nicked Kilo's tennis ball and ran off down the road :confused:. A few times a week (including this morning) I say sorry to a man whose Bichon goes insane barking, snarling and lunging about trying to get to us as we walk past them - he always gives me filthy looks and I say sorry. No idea why; it's a very English trait!!

    Well done Lola for keeping her cool.

    I'd pop that woman and her yorkies on my avoid or quick meet and greet and move along swiftly list.

    Try not to let this experience put you off going out with Lola again. I used to apologise for everything regardless of whether ti was my fault but i have to say over the past year i've toughened up rather a lot.
