I had a pretty good day up until I took Phred out for his evening walk. Our morning walk was great but it was pretty warm. I then came home and had a snack (Kiwi) and headed out to the gym. Felt good to be back on the machines.
Came home had lunch watch "GH" and did my JM "30 Day Shred". Husband came home and had a late lunch so I didn't cook, just had an HC meal.
Now I take my dog out for his evening walk, we are walking about 1 1/2 blocks from the house and I can see 2 people walking with 3 dogs. As I get closer I can tell whoever is walking the 2 dogs in front really has no control of the dogs. It turns out to be a young girl about 8 or so. When they are about 20 yards away I take my dog way over to the side of a grassy area next to a church. I say to the young lady I hope you have control of those dogs. At that moment the little girl loses both leashes and the 2 large dogs come at me and my dog. I pick up Phred because he starts to get aggressive. Meanwhile both of these dogs have jumped up on me and I am looking them in the face. They seem kind and are not aggressive but my dog start to get pretty upset.
The young woman (mother) starts yelling at the little girl, " Why can't you hang on", "I told you, you couldn't handle the dogs", and on & on. She finally comes up with the 3rd dog, a grey hound, who also jumps up. I am now surrounded by 3 dogs I do not know. I don't yell or get mad, I don't get any bad vibes from the dogs that they will bite. She gets all the dogs and walks away with them and says to the little girl " You pissed off that bitch!". I turn and say "I wasn't mad" and almost made a comment about calling me a bitch, but just turned away. I was thinking too bad she had to use that language in front of her little girl and I felt sorry for her child.
Later when I came home and told my husband he thought I should have made a smart remark about her use of the "B" word but I figured it would have just pissed her off more because she was real angry at her daughter.
What do any of you think? I felt turning the other check was the correct thing to do here at that moment. Besides she had 3 big dogs and I only had a 20 pound psycho dog. lol
