First, you should know that I'm a dog lover, and I firmly believe that most dogs are very sweet. I also believe that there are many, many bad dog owners. I think our society has gotten way out of control in the fact that we care more about animals than humans.
This morning while I was running, I encountered three dogs that I've encountered quite a few times in the past. They've barked before, but that's been the extent of it. Until today.
I was surrounded by the pack, and bitten twice. Once on the leg, and once on the backside. And believe me , it HURTS!
Thankfully, I called home, and Verne was able to come and get me. I called Animal Control, and they went out to get the dogs. The owners pled innocence, and Animal Control was only able to take one dog, as the other two were "missing". I think they were inside the residence.
Unbelievably, after a ten day quarantine, the dog will be returned to the owner and it will be able to torment passersby once again.
PLEASE, I implore you, tie your dogs. I feel very blessed to have gotten away with just two bites. It could have been much worse, but it shouldn't have happened at all.
