My bride and i went for a walk last night. We had our sissy shi-tzu with us. he is just about useless aside from vet bills (can you tell i dislike animals?). Anyway, we were turning a bend where we saw a loose dog barking at us. we didn't want out little sissy hurt, so we picked him up. we kept walking and then another dog showed up...it came running from behind a tree towards us growling and barking. it got w/i 2 feet of my left before i swung my foot to shoo it away. Now, i was prepared to shoot the darn thing if it did bite me, my wife or my sissy dog. It was a medium sized dog - 40-60 lb's maybe.
I've been bitten by dogs before and i know the world of hurt they can bring.
Well, my aggressive kick motion worked and the dog ran only to be shooed inside by his owner whom i chewed out.
My question would be (if there is one)... would you shoot if you in this situation?
