If you don't already know what.... "Passing" "WOOF WOOF" ....means I'll tell you.
The pic of the dog in the trike in my sig.... when I say "passing" loudly he gives two fast very loud barks and then stops. Just like a horn. When I want to I can move anyone or anything out of my way. It sounds like a big dog is right next to you.
I put a bell on the dog trike to prevent startling everyone. He does not bark at the bell.
We are traveling up a flat straight bike path with no one around. Except this one walker with a huge dog on a leash. I ring the bell a long way from the walker. He looks at me and moves onto the grass with his dog on his right away from the paved path. About the best thing to do.
As I get closer I see how big the dog is, the leash looks like 1" diameter rope. I think "wow that dog could pull that guy over, or right into us as we pass if I startle him."
Like an idiot I decide to say "passing with a dog" as get close behind him, and not very loudly.
DUH! The first word is "passing". I start to say it, "passing" gets out of my mouth, and "WOOF WOOF" thunders across the land. The dog is on the guys right, he instantly spins around and goes behind the guy to see us. we are passing so he keeps going around the guy in a compete circle.
He spins the guy in a circle and then pulls the guy down hard on the grass while he still has two hands on the leash. Ouch ! Oops, totally my fault. He was not hurt............much. Use the bell, use the bell, use the bell dummy. A group of 10 kids that block the path and don't move on purpose still get blasted with "WOOF WOOF" from 5 feet away that's different. I will warn them nicely with the bell plenty of times first.
With the awesome power of the SuperWoof comes great responsibilty. I must use my new superpowers carefully.
