With the tease of slightly warmer weather here in Ontario (2 degrees) - I couldn't wait to get outside for a light jog. I have been going down the same country road for years - I go by this one house/farm where they have a German Sheppard. (The only dog I have been attacked by - so not feeling too good) I always keep on eye on this house when running by, because he has barked and started to come down the long driveway in the past - but ususally gets called back. This morning - he comes running and stops at the line of the house. No owners in sight. He sits - and watches me. I think - ok maybe as long as I don't near the property. I start to walk (not run) and he stands up and is about to come forward. Luckily a car went by and he stopped. I am on the other side of the road now, and I decide to walk on other peoples property to by-pass this house. Made it. However, I started to run now that I'm well pass the house and he starts to come for me. Again, another car comes - i flag it down. Lady was great in the car - dog now goes back to his home. When I got home, I got in my car and went back to the house. Dog was there. I didn't get out - honked the horn till someone got out. I needed to meet him - and make friends. I patted him, he wagged his tail - Deisel wanted to jump up and say hello. Plus, I wanted to see how the ownder handled the situation. She said the dog was friendly, gave me his name and when he does that, she said tell him to go home. I did not get the "friendly" vibes from this dog when I was jogging by. I have made friends with the other dogs along this route - they did not come at me threatening. This bad boy scares me a little. Think I'm safe - or is he protecting the property - what should I do?
