Dogs

28 08 2007

I’ve been saying since the start of this endeavour that dogs will be the biggest problem. So far an uncountable number have barked, many have given chase , some have been roadkill, but only one has bitten.

A bit-bull cross of all breeds. The damn thing got a bit excited (possibly egged on by the two other dogs that gave chase) and tore a hole in my pannier, and punched two other smaller holes. With the existing hole, the supposedly waterproof panniers are beginning to look like a poorly designed colander.

I was reasonably furious at the time, a combination of adrenaline and annoyance at having the bags ripped. I didn’t go back, and hence saved the dog a few good kicks to the head, but yelling at the owner burned off some steam. I think he was laughing at me, and asked a few times why I wasn’t in a car. That didn’t help my temper.

I just hope the next dog that comes close is expecting a retaliation.
