Did my evasive maneuver created a worse situation?
Yesterday, while I was walking Cody along the town's main street, I noticed that a lady (who was dressed like that woman in the reality show) was walking two pit bulls coming on the opposite direction. There were other pedestrians in between and I bet that the lady did not even notice me. Anyway, I don't trust pit bulls. I don't care what their advocates say about them. If I see one, I try to avoid him or her.
So, I decided to actually leave the pedestrian walkway, and walk along parked cars. I hoped that the pit bulls did not see us. But no. After walking pass them, with a parked car shading us, I heard this scream behind me. It was the lady trying to hold onto one of her pit bulls. One of the pit bull actually went onto the street and was trying to chase after us. Thankfully, she was able to hold onto her dog.
Thinking back, I wonder whether my evasive maneuver made the pit bull more aware of us. In the end, it is up to me to protect my dog. So, today, I think I am going to buy myself a little bottle of pepper spray. Better be safe.
