Still smarting a bit from this one, so I'm venting on here! We were walking along a series of footpaths which go round the outside of fields, so you are syphoned along, so to speak, in a 10 foot wide path, there are t junctions, etc, until you get to common land. Ahead of me, crossing the path I was on, was a very large bulldog type with long legs, and an old-ish labrador. The owner was about 30 yards in front of her dogs, not looking behind her for them... So, this labrador turns off her path and onto mine, and the bulldog follows. They are coming up my path, the woman is continuing on her path. They are about 5 yards from me, and Clo is still on her lead, so we stop. The woman finally looks round, but the dogs are now trotting towards me and the labrador comes right up and sticks its nose into Clo's face. The woman calls out 'it barks a lot but it won't bite' and she heads for the bulldog, but it is the lab that is giving me grief. A small scrap ensues, and I back up, with my hand in Clo's harness. The woman goes 'that wasn't my dog that started that fight'. She is holding the bulldog but the lab is loose, so I keep Clo very close and scuttle past her, I said 'It is my dog that is on the lead', and she hurls abuse at me as I walk off. Honestly, sometimes I despair. I don't really see what else I could have done. I was in control of my dog, and she didn't even know that hers had left her path, but apparently it's my fault?? I suspect that she was just embarrassed as she was caught napping, but it was a beautiful afternoon and it upset me.
