Not the best of mornings so far my Minions.
I was walking Teddyji this morning and we were about a half mile from the Ashram when we were attacked by two larger dogs.
Let me start out by saying that we’re both fine.
I had seen the dogs in the distance, and I probably should have turned back as soon as I did, as I could tell they weren’t with anyone and they were running loose.
But, stupid me, I thought that they would just sniff Teddyji and leave us be.
No such luck.
As soon as they saw Teddyji they became aggressive and went for him.
I scooped him in up in my arms, which the experts always tell you NOT to do, but, I was sure that had I left him on the ground he would have been hurt or even killed.
Both dogs started jumping for him, and I kicked at them to drive them away.
The entire time I did this I was screaming for help.
And no one helped me.
Granted, this was at 6 in the morning, but, we were near four houses and I must have woken up someone with my screaming!
So much for good neighbors.
Finally, the dogs either got tired of me kicking at them, or they heard their owner call, because they both just ran off down a side street.
If I hadn’t had Teddyji with me, I would have gone after them to see where they lived in order to report their owner to the police.
As it is, I have no idea who owns them.
I did a drive around the neighborhood after I got Teddyji back home, but, there was no sign of them.
Nor have I ever seen them before today.
At this point, I don’t know if I should change our walking route or start carrying pepper spray or a baseball bat.
The whole ordeal has left me very shaken.
I’ll keep you all posted if anything further develops.
