I wanted to share this with the neighborhood.
We live on Henderson Road. We walk our little black
dog every day, usually in the neighborhood behind our house (off of
Morgan Road) or in the cul-de-sac across from our house (Henderson Way).
We were out of town for Memorial Day and a friend
stayed with our dog. On Tuesday morning she was walking the dog on
Henderson Way and a man was out walking. He had a stick (which he
carries in case he encounters trouble/dogs). Our dog happily went to
him. We think our friend didnít pull on the dogís leash, so he
might have gotten close to the manÖ we are not sure. The man started
telling her to pull the dog away from him and using his stick to prevent
the dog from getting closer. We do not know if our friend did so
rapidly or not, but the next thing she knew the man pulled out a gun and
pointed it at our dog.
Our friend was dumbfounded and told the man ďSir,
Itís OK, it really is OKĒ. She pulled the dog away and walked him back
Anyway, I understand people being afraid of dogs, and
perhaps our friend didnít know not to let our dog get close to a
stranger. We usually donít, as we realize a lot of people do not like
I am sharing this since sometimes children walk dogs,
and I wanted to make everyone aware of the danger. And if whoever
pulled a gun on our dog is reading this, I want him to know that we are
sorry this happened. However, pointing a gun at a dog thatís wagging
his tail in happiness may be a little too much.
