WOW!!!!!!!! talk about your bad luck! That is so terrifying a dog jumping out at you! That is awfully dangerous. Good thing your BF was there with you and could help! I still remember that one woman I talk with on walkes, and that black dog she said it was a lab pinned her down! Wow have to really carry some sort of spray bottle of gee vinegar or something with you put it in your coat pocket or pants packet or bag you carry while awlking! That is worrysome! Maybe the mace or heck a be~be gun now that a joke but heck that is horrible!
