cheers mate, i'll give it a go next time!
Gee, Pugger, you obviously didn't consider that the other owner was trying to steer clear of you because the look of Miley terrified her.
Seriously though, perhaps she and her dog had been accosted in the past by a bad-tempered cavalier and the dog was now reactive to that breed...
interestingly at the beach on sunday there was the perfect example of the stereotyped bull breed and owner(wankers like this annoy me, give all bull breed owners a bad name). A hugely muscular american bulldog(abnormally so from what i've seen in the past), dude walking along leaning back against the pull of his dog on a choke chain. every dog it saw it would lunge toward, even 20 metres away. this is an offleash beach and of course the inevitable happened and someones little yappy dog went barking at it - i was busy watching my dog chasing his ball but when i looked up dudes g/f is trying to keep the yappy dog away(from the reaction of yappy's owner i'd say he probably got a bite in). really annoyed me, that dog shouldn't be at an offleash area, should be muzzled - what happens if the chain breaks/slips out of his hand or whatever? times like that i'm glad my dog snobs all dogs he doesn't know at the beach and focus' on his ball(another ball fanatic staffy)
oh and owners of yappy dogs should learn to control them or put them on a lead - regularly yappy's go nuts at jack. he's good and will ignore them for a while but soon enough starts to give little warning signs - at which point he goes back on the lead until yappy goes somewhere else(its not fair though when my dog is minding his own business).

I agree it would be better to keep a dog that's clearly dog aggressive away from an off-leash area, but to be fair - dog owners letting their dogs off the leash should have enough control over them to be able to call them back if they go up to a dog on leash.
I have friends who have/had DA dogs and it was a constant worry for them, especially as in Canberra there are off-leash areas all through the suburbs and it can be hard to avoid them.
I don't take Miley off leash because she would get herself into strife.
RuralPug she's not as scary as Ollie the Pug
