Today we decided to take the dog, a 1 year old Belgian malinois out for a run and then i decided to stop at a couple car lots to look at some cars since i am planning a purchase and i knew no pesky salesman would be around to bug me. I will say i had my 10 old son in the car as well along with my sig p250 on my hip.
I was looking at a nice jeep at one lot and had seen a couple people looking at the back row specials and ignored them since they were a good distance away. I walked over to look at another car and then back to the jeep, having my back turned away from them and my car when all the sudden the dog starts going crazy so i quickly turn around to see the guy about 15 feet from my car.
Im sure there was no threat but i realized that i had no situational awareness and had it been a true threat the dog may have saved my rear.
After we left my son and i had a discussion about what i expect him to do in the future if there was an attack under similar circumstances which included putting the window down or opening the door to let the dog do her thing.
