Today, 5.5 mile slow run around the Common and 3 aggressive dogs to deal with.
So whilst I'm spinning round in flipping circles trying to face them and be playful with them, the owners do nothing! And to top it off, when I pass the owner they say something like "sorry...she's just a bit excited". And my response is something along the lines of "no worries", when really I feel (1) fortunate to have escaped being bitten, (2) after its sinked in...rather annoyed with the owner because it really isn't okay!! What is a good approach to handling these stupid owners?
