    knocked to the ground and bitten by a police dog. Who knew I was a seven year old felon?

    Even the Alsatians scare me a lot too but your experience would leave scars definitely! People should always be weary of their surroundings whether it be an animal, a road, a car, bike, train ,plane and cliffs. Surroundings are not always your friend. And people too.
    Dogs will think wide eyes can be aggressive, so staring alarmed humans can give them the wrong message. Don't try to get between them and their food. My dog was a runt in the litter who has always given hers to others and leaves some in her bowl in case she needs to share but I have met dogs very possessive of their food. I would feed them away from potential hazards like roamin' children. More lessons to be learnt soon. :)

    Well - very late to this post - but doggies very dear to my heart. Here is my late (and still loved) girl, another Ruby, showing her pleasure @ her favourite rabbit chasing spot - Mangere mountain - lead free inland heaven.

    Exactly how I feel in reverse. This is one of only two dog photos that I have.

    You kinda left out the part about the responsibilities of dog owners there, though. Assaults aren't generally regarded as the fault of the victim, are they?

    I'm not trying to be niggly, but it does irk me a bit when dog safety is presented as the problem of the person who might be attacked.

    but Russell - sometimes they are incited by victim's actions whether deliberate or not. Dogs see and process things differently to humans (thank goodness) and so their assault may be seen by them as a defence.

    I agree that unprovoked assaults are bad bad bad and most times those assaults are to do with the owners and dog training.

    mouth like a tardis : )

    What a good way to express Meg's, er, capacities. We made the very difficult decision to have her put to sleep after she was diagnosed with a brain tumour and rapidly became unwell with increasing periods of severe pain. He last evening was spent, pain-free, walking in the forest she loved with a swim in the estuary in the warm afternoon sun, a roll in the mud, a hokey pokey ice-cream on the way home and a large rump steak for dinner. The next morning before the vet came she perked up with half a large bar of chocolate, and a final nip and play with her younger companion.

    I cried for four days (pregnancy as an excuse), so my early Christmas present from my beloved was...a black labrador pup.

    As a serial dog-owner, I totally agree, and I expect part of my job as a dog-owner is to train my dog and to keep it away from people and places that are not specifically dog-friendly. Dogs are not people, they do not react like people, they do not belong everywhere people gather, particularly young children who are at dogs' face level.

    I think there's that thing about dogs in public being under control.

    And dogs not being let roam. This was a huge problem in my last place, the 'hood was full of roaming dogs. My cat was attacked by 2 large dogs in her own backyard and would I'm sure have been killed if I hadn't rushed up and pulled them off and chased them away (with a stick!) The dogs' owner was down the street cleaning his boat and was unaware his loose dogs had gone.

    My vet says she sees so many injuries as a result of wandering dogs, not only injuries to cats but also many injuries to the dogs themselves, from fighting and from getting hit by cars.

    Dogs need their people to be in charge.

    My Ruby had one too, but as it was very quick growing I was assured there had been no pain. Unfortunately we did not have a 'last night' as it was not discovered until during an operation on a bulging eye (tumour) but the night before the operation I awoke to find her missing from the bed and outside in the full moonlight merrily munching on a very foul smelling dug-up bone and as happy as any cross breed beagle could be.

    It's up to the owner to take responsibility for the dog's behaviour - whatever excuse can be brought from the dog's perspective.

    That was not my intention at all. Dog owners, dislikers , all, need to understand that which they are dealing with and it's very simple if owners will pop off and sit a responsible licence for owners if they want to respect the law of the city they are in, and, as in Jackie's case has received advice and is trying to understand the differences. Any attack on any being is not the victims fault. Be it animal or human. What did happen to the human trained police dog though? Another kettle of worms too I imagine.

    I got drunk when Chelsea died of cancer. She went to sleep and never woke up. She made it to 15 though. Good innings and much pleasure and laughter for me. And just to show I'm responsible with a lead ..... ;) (old, old photo, short dreads)

    It's in the mix. I too have loved dogs. But it drives me crazy that some dog owners let down their dogs by not even attempting to be responsible. Dogs have their instincts and it's not their fault if they follow them.

    I know even responsible owners sometimes have problems.

    But being leader of the pack is part of the joy and the challenge of having a dog, isn't it?

    Excellent and she is beautiful young and old . Heh, I can say that about Stella too. Except balls . She sees no point if it only gets thrown away once she has brought it back. we get the look of " Now who's the stupid people?"
    Now Chelsea liked balls, and the hackey sack!

  • Julie Cross,

    ooops (donning my cap of shame)
    apologies to Sophie and Jackie in particular for opening that particular gate on your lovely thread... as I am not in NZ and sift the NZ media randomly I wasn't aware it was quite the bruise that it is... sadly the bad dog owners tar the good ones, as ever. And it is obvious from the adoring looks on these dog faces that these are good owners. I think I will disappear over to cats for a bit.
