I love walking my dogs, and I love my dog friendly neighborhhood but sometimes it's a huge challenge. I have 2 adorable Jack Russell Terriers, Kirby and Chloe, who love to play with other dogs but not if they're on leashes. Since we have a leash law in our town, they're always on leashes for our walks.
If you see me coming toward you with my dogs when you're out walking yours and I suddenly turn and go the other way, don't take it personally. I'm not avoiding you. I'm simply getting my dogs out of the way before they scare you or your dogs or just royally embarrass me. If we continue on and pass you, they will pull, jump, bark ferociously and just about pull my arms out of their sockets to get to your dogs. If I must continue on and pass you, you'll see me duck my head, hide my red face and walk as quickly as I can to get pass.
Fortunately, I also love walking alone. When you see me out without my dogs, please stop to chat. I really do like you.
