    Just go the Rick Perry route... I have the same gun he used (for my summer carry) for killing the coyote. I haven't ever run with it, but it is small enough that it wouldn't be a big deal if I wanted to. Of course I live in the same city as Rick, so I guess my chances are the same as his to have this type of encounter.

    I've been lucky to never have a dog chase me through a neighborhood yet, but I guess it only takes once.

    Attacked by my own family dog (though grown, we didn't have it for more than a few months and it was chained). Though it was my fault - walked toward a guard dog with chicken bones in my hand, well it ripped through the chains and jumped on me. Had to take multiple shots for rabies. They took away the dog and I never found out what happened to it.

    A few years ago while in college, I was walking to work one day and was chased by this pit bull/rottweiler some hicks kept at their house near my apartment. Had to run 30-40 yards to a house and luckily it's front door wasn't locked. The dog stood there in front of the glass doors until a car showed up and I could bolt into it. I called animal control once I was in the clear but I'm not sure what happened to the dog.

    My douchebag neighbor lets his pit bull roam out front when he is cutting his grass. My concern is a little kid walking by. I've already seen him go after another dog.

    County apparently only has records if we know the rabies tag number. Weird I know, but that's why they have to go the quarantine route.

    Is the quarantine over, and if so, did the dog turn out to be rabies-free? Hopefully if the dog is back home, it's no longer roaming freely.

    My douchebag neighbor lets his pit bull roam out front when he is cutting his grass. My concern is a little kid walking by. I've already seen him go after another dog.

    When I run in town, there's a house about 4 or 5 blocks from mine where the people do the same thing, but they have a great dane and a boxer. We running by there the other day and the idiot was cutting his grass not even watching. The dogs spotted me and were watching the whole time. Had they bolted, they would have been on me and the moran cutting his grass never would have known.. I have come to the conclusion that 3 or 4 in 10 dog owners should be euthanized..

    Is the quarantine over, and if so, did the dog turn out to be rabies-free? Hopefully if the dog is back home, it's no longer roaming freely.

    Not yet, another 5 days or so. The dog is still at the guy's house, and I saw it Saturday, bouncing around, playing with some 8 or 9 year old kids.. [​IMG]

    It didn't appear sick, which was reassuring, but WTF? It just bit a guy and it was outside playing unattended with children?

    Was bitten again by my friend last night. Even worse than a few weeks ago. She broke the skin. Arms are a little swollen, a few nice teeth shaped bruises. Should I go get tetanus shots? [​IMG]

    Yeah, I have noticed this as well, they just don't give a shit. Like I said above, I am not the suing type, and the guy really did seem very upset that this all happened, so I'll collect some positive kharma from saying fuck it, and move on with life.
    Always liked you, but I gotta say: respect. ~ H

    I like you too, but not enough to want to see your thigh. [​IMG]

    Damn though, it does look like a skull. That is a bad omen according to the practice of divination.

    It kind of looks like the skull of [​IMG] never been bitten myself, but I've had to protect a couple dogs from other dogs, usually off-leash. I don't know if it's a smart way to do it, but I learned to teach snarling dogs by grabbing over their snout and pushing their lips under their teeth, usually stops them. Of course that is not if they are actually trying to bite you.
