Warning! Excited dog alert!
I love dogs, I really do, but have only just discovered what a menace they can be to runners. The other week I had the dog poop (more of an owner issue) to dodge, but today I had the dogs themselves. I was running along in the park, aiming for a new PB for running a mile when from behind some trees ran two little beasties (a Cocker Spaniel and a Scottie - lethal combination!) who thought they would come and say hello. The next I know they are both running around my feet and I ended up with my legs tied up in a mass of fur and leads! I said hello to them and gave them both a little pat on the head and got them de-tangled then carried on but that little encounter cost me a whole 25 seconds!!
