Agree with you there. Infact, it not really the dogs fault. Its only only protecting its property. Really, owners need to be a bit more careful on the dogs getting to the door. Postmen can refuse to deliver to that address - luckily, my one is understanding and leaves the post under a plant pot!
Just for info: I was told by the police that if my dogs attcked someone in the house ie a burglar, I could be done! My motto is, if you dont want to be eaten, and you don`t want a beating, don`t break into someones property! Common sense really!
Dogs - fraid you're talking toa real cynophobe here. When I was a child, I used to run around screaming if a dog came near me. Even now, I feel very insecure taking a walk in a park, etc, in case there is a loose dog. It does spoil things for me. On the other hand, some dogs I'm fine with - it all depends on circumstances.
If you don't like something, change it - REMEMBER - YOU'RE NOT A TREE!
I dont trust some breeds either, tho was never attacked by a dog...... (well cept for a few Saturday nights out Lol. but a swift, well aimed knee fixed their wagons Lol). But Ive heard that a small dog can be just as vicious as a large dog, yet its the large dogs that tend to worry me. My friend has a Doberman , and its a big softy with her kids, but I cant go in the house while its there
