Other dog owners
#11
tx2sturgis,

You're probably right, all I know is it's supposed to shock whatever it touches.  Yes, it does spark and crackle when activated so stun gun it must be.

Well behaved dogs are a joy to observe.  There is a beautiful German Shepard here whose owner is about 4'10" 85#.  It's a rip to watch them together!  Faith (the dog) stays in her space until released by command, walks beside her tiny owner without a leash, is friendly and polite, just like her owner.  LOL!  The dog is almost bigger than the owner!  And she drives a little bitty car, you can barely see her but the dog takes up the entire back seat and smiles (I swear) at you when they drive by.  I smile just thinking about them.

Thank you so much for helping me to realize yet one more reason why I choose to stay as far away from other campers as possible.  

In fact , once I'd heard that you had threated to use bear spray on some one else's dog, I've stayed away from Jim's group.  And plan to keep things that way.

Have you ever had bear-spray on your skin?  It is the most painful thing I've ever felt (I spilled some on me, in the backcountry).   You do NOT want to spray my dog with that.  I promise you.  

That comment might get me kicked off of the forum, but I really don't care.  

BTW, my dog is named Lacy, you've met her.  She has never attacked another dog, even much smaller ones.  She is also deaf.  But I'm one of those people who rarely leash her.  Too bad.

Of course, with a 'rug' like that, you'd run the risk of being mistaken for Trump heading for the golf course.

lol....yeah this pooch is a bit bigger than the 'toy' chihuahuas...about 11 pounds....roughly the size of a yorkie or poodle. 

Hey the little kid across the street, who I've never met, don't know his name, other than he calls me 'Grandpa'....

'Hello Grandpa!' he yells from across the street...

I really don't need any help looking like an OLD guy!

Cool

Just to be clear...

When I used the word 'attacked'...that means my dog or myself is under threat of being severely injured, or is being injured, by a large, aggressive, breed such as an angry pitbull, or you know, a rabid German Shepherd for that matter. 

Flesh is being punctured, or about to be. 

Menacing, harassment, and/or barking, are not the same thing. 

In that case, I just pick up my dog and walk away.

Exactly!

When I walk Lacy around  here in E'berg, I DO carry her leash and a big stick.  The leash is in case she wants to wander,  and the stick helps me keep my balance. 
Coyotes don't concern me, because Ive been around them for years and know how to act around them.

And I only walk AWAY from other campers.
