The highlight of my day

This early in the morning, I've already had a highlight to my day.

Let's hope the day continues on a positive note, shall we?

My gym workout this morning was wonderful. I left very hot & sweaty, but feeling energized. Could have something to do with fact that it was still in the 60's & we haven't yet hit the part of the day where you want to crawl into a walk in freezer and hang out.

When I got back home, I decided to take Hayden out for a quick run. Nothing long, but enough to get her moving & get some exercise since later in the day just isn't an option.

So there we were trotting through the neighborhood. She kept looking back at me and grinning (doesn't everyone's dog do this?) and I'd tell her what a good girl she is.

She had already done her business & being the responsible owner I am, I'd already picked it up & had the bag with me just in case.

Thank goodness for just in case.

We ran past a row of tall bushes that some people use for fences.

When all of a sudden, in the front yard, there he was.

The Doberman.

The very large (bigger than my sweet girl) Doberman.

And his hackles were raised.

So we slowed down, didn't make eye contact & kept going.

I heard the lady in the yard with him yell out, "No!". All I could think of at that point was that "No!" sure wasn't going to keep this dog away from mine.

Sure enough he bounded over. Where he started to sniff her.

As I was pulling her & putting myself in between them, he growled and did a little jump.

Then I yelled "NO!" and smacked that Doberman full on in his face with that full bag of poo.

I wish you could have seen both the owner & the dog's faces. They didn't know what hit them.
Ha! - b.e.g. - I made a punny

Remember I once told you I was Armed & Dangerous? Yeah, I'm not afraid to use it either.

Happy Wednesday, y'all!

awesome!! one of my pet peeves?? people having their dogs off leash like that.
Seriously.........get off your lazy ass and put your dog on a leash and walk them!! Instead..they stand at the door while the dog does their biz then never picks it up!! arghh

Why people let their dogs roam free, I'll never understand. But that's hilarious that you poo-smacked that dog, lol.

So, the poo made the dog back away!??
I used to run by a house with dogs that looked mean and Vicious when we First moved to our house and my little girl was brand new to me. Um, I jut picked up my 40 pound dog until we got out of sight. I don’t do that anymore. I learned that it was not necessary, but IF a dog came to attack, I would definitely get in the middle and use my foot if needed.

OMG I love the thought of you jogging with poo bag. Hilarious. BTW you're giving doberman's a bad name. I'll have you know Mister Bondi is very respectful young boy and would never get his hackles (is that what they're called?) up over your pretty girl.

Brittany Ann said...

LOL! I can't stop laughing! Too funny! I'd totally do this!

Susannah said...

Oh my gosh, so what happened then? DId he go away? What did the owner do? And finally, do you think he would've hurt your dog or you?? Yikes!

Cheeseboy said...

Probably the funniest story I've read all week.

You should have hit the owner with the poo bag too. Right in the face.

Llama said...
