I was out one morning last week with young Brian, when we met an old guy out walking his beast.
This is in a rural area with not many people around. Both dogs were running free. Before I knew it the other dog had mine pinned down and he was yelping in pain. The old guy was shouting at it but it took no notice. Fortunately I was close by and it ran off as soon as I got near enough to be threatening.
The same thing happened again yesterday. This fucking beast dodged around me - I was swinging the lead I was carrying and yelling at it to try and send it back to it’s owner - chased Brian and ran him down, it wasn’t just a little scrap and Brian was definitely trying to keep out of the way.
Again it ran off when I got close to them, which is fortunate as I’d grabbed an umbrella from a passer-by and was in a seriously bad mood. The old guy started giving me all that ‘bu yong pa, dui bu qi’ rubbish and I was sorely tempted to give him a smack but that wouldn’t really help the situation any.
So far there’s no serious harm done, but I’m really not happy about this.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I’m taking a big stick with me today and will keep my dog close to me. If the thing comes close enough, whether or not it wants to have another go, I’m going to do my best to beat the fuck out of it.
