Argghhh!!! So I live in a wee tiny village where there's lots of dogs. Someone who lives right beside a path on a favourite walk for everyone had two Staffies, one white, one brindle coloured. Now I've seen these dogs out on their own wandering about, no one with them. At the weekend one of them bit a kid on the face. From what I hear the kid was provoking the dog but I don't kow for sure. Anyway, predictably the dog was taken away and PTS. Terrible scenario for all involved. This afternoon I had the boy out for a walk and we're almost at where the remaining dog lives. I happened to look over and saw the dog, wandering the street, on it's own, unaccompanied. It spotted my boy who luckily didn't see him, and it stopped dead in the middle of the road. It might as well have said "Come ahead!", I mean this was a pure aggressive stance. I managed to turn Bailey round and interested him in something else and I watched while this other dog stood for a while, watched us and then moved off. A car pulled up across the road from where I'd last seen the dog so I felt okay to move on. When we got to the house where this dog lives the front door was wide open, again. So basically, the dogs are let out on their own, one of them bites a kid and is PTS on Saturday and yet still, there's the front door open and the other one wandering around on it's own. I really felt quite threatened and wouldn't have walked by there if the car hadn't pulled up across the road so I knew there were people about just in case. Honestly, I was fuming about it. I swear if I see this happening again I'm going to report it to the dog warden. I have actually emailed the dog warden today to clarify exactly the lay of the land in terms of dogs off the lead and wandering on their own. I'm so mad!!!
