All creatures moving in harmony
I love dogs. I love their unique personalities, their spirit and their playfulness, their sensitivity and their loyalty. But I suddenly found myself on the receiving end of one of their other traits, their need to protect their territory, and I began to find my lifelong love turning into fear.
I was on a 400-mile solo bicycle trip, and much of my route was on rural back roads that took me past small farms and country homes. After being chased by a number of dogs on the first day of my trip, I found myself approaching each new home along the route with trepidation, listening carefully for barking or even the jingling collar tags of a dog in hot pursuit of a trespassing bicyclist.
