I had received a bike for my birthday. At the time I never usually came out side for anything. I was a bit of a house mouse to be honest. But I decided to take it out for a spin
I came upon a street couple blocks over. Not a single person in sight, not even a car. to some people that's a clear red flag, but to 10 year old me that's the perfect place to ride my bike, so I began riding, I began to slowly pick up speed but by the time I got 3 houses down I heard a loud bark, and out the corner of my eye I saw a dog brown fur and a deadly gaze chasing me. I didn't know what to think at the time, I only began to paddle as fast as I could, but the dog began to catch up, it was right up on my left lag and began biting at it....
What do you do at 10 years old ? I thought I was going to die there, not a single person in sight and this dog about to tear into my flesh. But as the dog went in for the bite I lift up my left leg and began paddling with my right leg as fast as I could in an effort to avoid getting bit, I am not sure just how I was able to do that. But I guess in what feels like a life and death situation you will find a way. I got the the end of the street and as I was out of this dog territory she left me alone. Yup turns out that dog was a mom
She was protecting her babies. Thats the reason she was aggressive, actually we went over there and got a puppy called lucky, which actually grew up to have a temper as bad as her mom. But she was a beloved dog and a favorite among our entire family. If you want more animal stories like this one, drop a like it would mean a lot thank you.
