Well, while having an innocent walk and getting some exercise on the way home from the shops today I was attacked by a freaking huge dog (not sure of it's breed). I was quietly walking along the opposite side of the road when this thing came bolting out of the property. This has happened before and my thought was that a) It will stand there barking at me or b) It will go for it and and bite me. It chose option b and without mercy attempted to have lunch with my arm. I managed to deflect it a couple of times but lost my footing and fell over at which time a young girl fortunatly called it away. Thankfully I was unhurt and had no injuries, my thick jumper helping but I was extremely pissed off. This attack reaffirms my disliking of big dogs and dogs in general and also morons who forget that having a pet such as a dog is a responsibility when living in a community. If a young child had gone past at that moment it wouldn't have stood a chance against this animal. Don't get me wrong, I've found most people where I live to be responsible and keep their pets inside their property but occasionally I see a dog roaming the streets.
