I had to tell you about this because it was very scary and upsetting. I was out for my afternoon walk at lunch today and was attacked by a dog. I was just walking by him and his owner and all of a sudden the dog (large and black with pointed ears) lunged across the sidewalk at me and grabbed on to my left calf. There was no warning growl and it was totally unprovoked. He broke the skin but did not draw blood. There is a bruise is about 5 inches long and 3 inches wide. It has red bite marks in it. The owner was very kind and apologetic but said it had happened before when bicycles had rode by. I called the police and the pound to report what happened. Strange thing is I don't want the dog to have to be put down. The man was very nice and the dog might be his best friend. I do want him to start muzzling his dog before he attacks someone else like a child. It will likely be worse next time.
