Picture This…

Picture this – You are riding your bicycle in the remote southern part of your county.

You have already ridden over 20 miles. You come to a farm house, and there are 3 Akita dogs (top left) and 2 Labrador Retrievers (right) standing in the middle of the road waiting for you to come to where they are.

Only problem is they are not friendly. They are not glad to see you. They are not wagging their tails. Instead, they are barking at you and start chasing you at top speed to try to catch you.

Then picture the Akita dogs fading off to the left side and behind you. Then picture the black labs chasing you as fast as they can go.

A dream you may ask? Nope, it was very real and it happened to me Sunday afternoon. Thankfully I was able to outrun the dogs and make it safely the rest of the way home.

Whew! Sigh of relief!

    Haha! Moments like this are always intimidating. As much as I love dogs, when I am out running, unfamiliar dogs make me nervous. I once had a couple of dogs come out of the woods and start running with me. They never bothered me…they just wanted to run too 🙂
