Out early this morning for walkies before work. Still dark. We go our usual route. See ahead a woman with a dog come out of the flats ahead, go up the hill where dogs get walked alot, she has hers off the lead, but sees us coming (mine's on lead) - she continues up hill, which was fine, as we were walking around the hill. Mine was not concerned with the other one, was walking by (they weren't close either), then I hear the woman yell for her dog, who is charging up to mine. Mine's wagging the tail, but the other one is sniffing her bum, then decides to go for her! So mine takes offense at this, and turns to defend herself. (I'm holding her back, trying not to let it become a full blown fight) Other woman gets there and gets her dog away, never looks at me. Drags her dog off without a word to the door of the flats, THEN puts her on the lead...looking back at me like it's MY fault her dog is out of control (of course it's my fault, I've got a rottie, so it's always my fault :mad2 - so I said 'you should keep her on a lead' - and walked off. The dog was a brown and white spaniel-type by the way. Thankfully on the way back we met one of her doggy friends and had a nice chat with his owner - who has horror stories of her own about telling a woman recently to pick up her dog's poo, and being told to 'Go back home to Poland' (she's not Polish, but from a different European country altogether) But you get the idea. What is wrong with people???
