There's a loopy thread in this forum that is devolving into a Monty Pythonesque debate about whether cats are valid head protection, and it reminded me: I was attacked by a dog today! A seeing-eye dog, no less! I had to run an errand to buy something too big to lug home on the bike, so I took the subway (it was also pouring). I was walking in Times Square when I felt . . . well, it felt a little like a somebody rummaging through my boxers with tiny little fists. Which is how it feels when a seeing-eye dog with a muzzle is led right into your thighs and tries to bite you several times! Very alarming. I stood in disbelief, watching as the blind woman progressed up Broadway. You could tell where she was because every 20 feet or so, some poor sucker would leap sideways in alarm.
It's much safer on a bike and in the streets!
