    Default Near-Death Experience!

    Woah. My heart is still thumping!

    Me, my brother and his friend were going for a walk (Not with any dogs!) down the street and across the road. When we passed by one of the houses down the road, their dog (Looked like a BIG cattledog/x) came barrelling to us from the one side of the road to our side NARROWLY missing a car that was SPEEDING down the road! Well. There were also about 7 cars I could see in the distance about to come down the road!
    I was thinking, “****, ****, what do I do!” and decided to yell out to the house for the owners of the dog. WELL. Noone was home! They had left their gate open, but noone was home.
    I was FROZEN with fear for the dog to be honest, especially when it ran back over to its house, again JUST missing another car. I didn’t know what to do! I told the boys to stay still until all the cars had gone and then continue walking (I didn’t want the dog to get excited) But AGAIN it came over! I yelled at it “to go HOME!” and it started walking back over the road, but then SAT down right in the middle of the frikken road!
    A car had to screech to a stop and wait for the dog to go back into its gate and to the back of the house.

    We ended up taking off home, as soon as the dog was at the back of the house and no longer that aware of us.

    My heart is thumping so MADLEY! I seriously thought that dog was going to get hit!

    What should I have done in this situation??? Should I have done something differently?? ???

    <takes deep breath> I know that it didn’t get killed, but it quite easily could of!

    Wow Demi, not a nice experience!

    Any chance of dropping a note in their letterbox or under their door explaining to them what happened.

    AND TELLING THEM TO KEEP THEIR DOG INSIDE THE PREMISES!!!

    God this sort of irresponsible behaviour ****s me to tears, I'm sorry.

    Wow, that would have your heart thumping! It sounds like you did do all you could with cars coming down the road. It would seem like the dog has sat down in the middle of the road before, especially if it did it fairly calmly!
    Maybe if you called in to see the people who own the dog at some stage and let them know their dog almost got killed and suggest they might want to install a lock on their gate!

    I was so shocked and just plain scared - I kinda immediately FROZE and I couldnt really think of much to do!
    It's extremely irresponsible! Our Boof KNOWS he is not allowed outside our gate, but we NEVER leave the gate open in any case! It takes 1 car to kill.
    A few people DO go walking around this area and I know that several people go on evening wlaks past that house, I feel so helpless to think how many times that dog has gotten out and nearly been hit!

    I'll go tomorrow and see if I can see the owner/s and tell them what happened.

    That is a great idea Demi.

    Um, just as a thought, can you please take another person with you?

    Yes, I agre with AF. Take someone with you, whats most important is that you stay safe. who knows what kind of a person would leave their gate open next to a busy road. multiple times. be careful!

    DA and AF are right. Do take someone with you. You don't know what the owner might be like. You can't be too careful these days!

    What a scary experience for you... but just want to say that there is no proof that the owners actually left the gate open, maybe a local kid did it??? Its a good idea to let the owners know though, maybe they were unaware that there gate has been open, Im sure they would be much appreciative
