FRIDAY NIGHT DOG BLOG – CHANCE MEETINGS May 19, 2007Posted by wmmbb in DOG BLOG -.
There is always the chance that we may happen upon other dogs as we go about regular circuit. On such occasions caught unawares if the other dogs come upon us without me seeing or hearing them. There might be some photos to be had, but Sasha and Dexter, when they are of a mind, can take some holding. Usually I try to be proactive by getting them to sit. So there is some sense to my talking to the dogs out loud as we go along just let anybody else we are there. When we see other dogs we do the right friendly thing and go back, to the side, or another way.
This week the mini-bikes were not around, and there were not cyclists who can come up on us quickly and silently. Still, I try to remember the advice “to stay calm and be assertive”. Sasha and Dexter have for the most part go used to their environment.
