Yup. And the third, apparently. The dog that bit me was supposed to be quarantined to his yard (back) instead the owner had him in the garage, sans restraint and he ran down the driveway, around my ex-husband (to the street side) and bit ME on the ass. All I was doing was walking down the sidewalk. We hadn't even seen the dog until he attacked. He'd previously bit a kid and an elderly person, yet the stupid owner still had him loose free to attack anyone who happened by. Lucky me. I so should have sued.
I've never been afraid of dogs, mom told me I'd walk up to dogs bigger then me when I was a kid. But now I understand what it means to be bitten. A few years ago my neighbor called me and asked if I would get his chow back in his yard. I've known this dog since he was a pup. He played in my yard with my dobe for years. So I go to the front of his house with a leash and sat on his front steps and called him to me. When I went to put the leash on he dug his teeth into my hand. He was never a friendly one but never menacing so it was a surprise. And it really hurt. You just never know what your dog will do. I've had dobes for over 40 years that would let the prison population in my house but I never took chances with any of them. Always were confined in a yard or on a leash.

To ridicule anyone with this fear about their reaction to a dog running toward them is just plain mean.

No, he was able to move quicker, but in my panicked state I was not processing his speed, only the fact this freaking dog was coming at me and I only kept it from jumping on me by using my rifle case as a shield.
If I were a business owener and a customer showed obvious fear, defensiveness wouldn't be my first reaction. For him to think we should all love a strange dog running at you in a business is rude.
He also must get it frequently and is tired of it.

I find dogs running free in a business rude. It's not expected and a major liability. He's a jerk and was completely unapologetic towards his customer. His sense of entitlement was repugnant.

Even dogs running free in a home should be trained not to jump on guests. You people let dogs jump on and sniff crotched of guests in your home are bad owners. It is rude. And the first thing out of people's mouth when you freeze, "It's okay-they won't bite you." Like that means I want it jumping on me and violating me. Be a better host-not everyone is in love with dogs.

And I was attacked by a dog when I was 6. I have no fear as an adult. Maybe you need therapy?

Went mountain biking last Thursday and there was a stray pit puppy running around the parking lot. People like to dump dogs out in the country, apparently. He was gorgeous and friendly. Almost had me a 3rd dog. Apparently, mountain bikers are almost universally 'dog people', too. Everyone's standing around like "Well, I can't take him, I've got four at home already." "I've got three..." He did get picked up.

I see both sides of this argument. I understand fear and panic, but I also see having dogs around at a private business. All Chel can do is not patronize the business and tell them why, which she has. If some businees sets up shop somewhere where I'm required to get in a glass elevator or an open escalator to go to the 10th floor, they aren't getting my business, either, because that's my panic button.

And sadly, we don't know UNTIL we step in. I went there because that's whre my club's shoot was. I walked in completely unaware. How do you know people will let crazy dogs run free in the business? I know it's a private business but it's catering to the PUBLIC.

Are you grumpy because I didn't answer your call and wouldn't date you after you showered me with gifts when we met?

So, J's good buddy B is getting married next May, to a woman he got engaged to after like 3 months of dating. The wedding is going to be super tacky IMO--camo vests, cowboy boots, and jeans for the groomsmen--I am going to laugh so hard at J--he does not do the whole redneck/cowboy thing at all. Neither do any of the other groomsmen that I know.

Anyway--the bride picked 'their' first dance song, and absolutely will not budge or compromise on it. Check the lyrics. http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/bandperry/bett...

spreadable, as opposed to pourable
You can put this stuff on a piece of bread without it running through the little holes and making a mess
