To know fear is to know this dog

Scary dog, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

For those who live in south Petworth, perhaps you have met this dog before. Now I realize this picture does the dog no justice but I was terrified, sprinting away from this 4 legged menace. Let me assure you this dog is pure muscle and he knows it. Now I know there are lot of dog enthusiasts who read this blog so I’ll tell you perhaps this is a nice dog but be careful walking on the sidewalk near his house. You can see the fence is all of 2 foot high and this dog lunges at if you are anywhere in a 50 foot radius of it. I was waiting for this moment which comes every Spring. The dog is let out in its yard and when you walk down Taylor St. near NH it let’s you know who’s boss. I fully concede he is the boss. I concede nearly twice a day from Spring until Winter but he refuses to accept my surrender. I can’t explain how terrifying it is. The dog lunges at the fence barks like crazy and every time I think: ok, so this is how I’m going to die, I’ve lived a good life, I guess I always wanted to travel to China and have children, well not in China but, I’m getting off track here. I hate this fricking dog!
